    Schalfly Tap Room (just tapped a nice Flanders Red)
    Civil Life (Cozy, Quaint, Traditional yet lively!)
    Urban Chestnut Brewing Co. (great variety, great brews)

    Also check out Bridge Tap House (not a brewery but great beer bar).
  6. I second this.

    And get the Cuban.
  7. Get over to Schlafly Bottleworks for a meal. The food (and of course the beer too) is awesome!
  8. Don't forget about 4hands!!

    ill give a second to 4 hands, civil life, and perennial. if you have more time, then head over to schlafly and urban chestnut, and if you are looking for good beer bars, iTap in soulard and bridge tap house are awesome, flying saucer recently opened near busch stadium as well. if you can make it outside the city at all and wouldnt mind a little bit of a drive to a lesser known local brewer, i would also recommend exit six in cottleville. they have 20 something taps, 5 are their own beers which are all really good, and they always have great guest taps as well

    It depends on what you like. If you like beers that push the envelope, Perennial and Four Hands. If you like more traditional beers, Schlafly, Civil Life and Urban Chestnut. Civil Life for English Styles, Urban Chestnut for German.
