ITAP as it's known is a beer bar. Make no mistake about it, no food, just beer. Incredible selection of taps that change often and if I'm not mistaken just about every bottle of beer distributed in MO can be found in thier coolers, purchased and drank on premises. They allow food to be ordered or brought in from nearby restuarants, if your hungry. They play host to many cool beer events. The Soulard location is in a cool, older part of town, just a few blocks from the AB brewery. The inside has a lot more character than Chesterfield, with a lounge area right when you walk in the front, and a really nice patio area with a fountain using tap handles as the water spickets. If you're visiting from out of town, and are staying closer to the city, I'd suggest this location over Chesterfield because of the atmosphere, plus, you're closer to many other brewpubs and bars, too.

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.
