Have been wanting to go to this place since it opened in Soulard.

Finally went to catch some football and some beers on Saturday, Sept. 11, 2010.

The inside is basically all brick 'cuz it is housed in this historic building in Soulard. As you walk in the room is a rectangular elongated space that is quite open and easy to move through. The bar area is in the middle of the room and it does kind off create a bottleneck around that area. The bar is a nice dark wood and is obviously quite new. This place has been open only a couple of months. The back of the bar has two cooler areas that are divided by the wall of 40 taps. Very nice and clean look. There are enough TVS around to keep one entertained.

The quality of brew is good for St. Louis. You can get pretty much anything that is available at the bottle shops and some nice surprises on draft (some Arcadia ales). The bottle selection is great with most of the Belgians that are available in the area.

Service was good as well. The servers don't seem to be to knowledgable but they are friendly enough. I guess with experience they will get a bit more knowledgable.

Overall I was way excited about coming to this place because of the extensive draft selection. I was not disappointed and I am excited because this place is on my way home from work.

This is probably the best single bar to go for beer variety in St. Louis. The atmosphere is pretty laid back with plenty of different seating options (bar, booth/table, couches, outdoor). I wish they concentrated less pn putting soccer on TV, but a good number of TV's with good variety of things to view. Beer selection is huge, with well over 100 options in bottles and I think ~50 taps. Everything is served in proper glasses and is clean.

Cool thing here is that even though they don't offer food, they are connected to both Mission Taco and Epic Pizza thru a hallway and you can bring your food into the bar. My only beef is with the service, which is occasionally lacking, specifically at the bar. The servers are usually prompt and polite with decent knowledge of their selection.

iTap also has a great variety of beer events throughout the year. My favorite so far was the Nightmare Before Christmas, where they trotted out ~30 dark, imperial beers and offered half pours. Great event!

I've been here a few times and it can be packed or half full. I'm glad they now at least have the draft list on their website, but the photo of writings on a chalkboard can be hard to read. It is still an upgrade. Their selection is great, but there isn't a lot that is super limited. Beers are served in proper glassware. No food, but they are connected to Mission Taco Joint so you are set.

Simply one of the best places to go in St. Louis for beer. Small but cozy place, live bands on the weekends, special events almost every other night of the week, 480 bottles available, 40 beers on tap, and a selection that constantly changes. Friendly bar tenders/waitresses/waiters and extremely knowledgeable. Absolutely amazing place and a must visit location.
