If you had to spend your money between food and beer at Busch Stadium or at a nearby food and beer bar, which would you choose? If the place is like Bailey's Ranger, then the choice is quite easy. Good burgers in a young and hip vibe in downtown St. Louis, and plenty of craft beer options pouring from the taps got the evening off to a great start. The drafts are often served in multiple sizes at fair prices ($6 for many 16 oz offerings), and brands like Schlafy, 4 Hands, Urban Chestnut, Boulevard, 2nd Shift, Civil Life, and Destihl gave this out-of-towner a good problem ofhaving too many appetizing beer options. With a pleasing burger and chipotle ketchup to go with the fries, it's safe to say my food and drink needs were more than meet.

Visited late on a Monday night with Wade and Adam, about 10:30pm. The kitchen was still open.

V – Bright and shiny. The vibe, in my opinion, is decidedly not a beer bar. Don’t get me wrong, it is a very nice place, but most BAs would not expect this to be a good beer bar, but it is. 4

Q – No reason to have a concern over so many taps. Beer tasted fresh. Clean and proper glassware. 4.25

Ser – Great service. Friendly. Advice given freely. 4.25

Sel – A good selection of beer. Same owner as Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar, but I believe the Bridge (at least during my visit to St. Louis) had a better tap list on this visit. 4.25

F – Had a great burger. Fries, even with dipping sauce were lacking. Frickles were good as well. 4.25

Hit BR during a biz trip to STL after reading the enthusiastic comments logged thus far on BA. I'll 2nd the favorable assessments; I'm always elated to find a place offering a plethora of local brews not available on my home turf and with its 30+ taps, BR satisfies that criteria. I had perhaps the best ESB I've ever sampled outside of the UK, Civil Life's Angel & Sword, which was bitter as bitters should be, with its edge not buried in the malt. Also had Modern Brewery's Citrapolis, which was light, fruity and smooth as glass and the only thing I found lacking was the next one and finished off with local favorite Schlafly's Farmhouse, that offered a spicy blast of fruity flavor.
I understand BR been open for 5 or 6 years and hope they enjoy many more years of successful patronage. Grand place which I'll return to on my next trip and I'll have to hit their sister outlet, The Bridge, too.

What an awesome new place in downtown STL! A short walk from the hotel I was staying at, this place was perfect for the craft beer boom in St. Louis. With 30 local taps, it's the perfect place to try all the new brews from 2nd Shift, Charleville, Civil Life, 4 Hands, Urban Chestnut, Six Row and of course Schlafly & O'Fallon. It is definitely hipster-ish. Funny seating, like a table as long as the bar. Antique windows hanging on wire divide the dining area from the kitchen. The service is good. Great friendly servers at the bar. Table service was a little slow upstairs, but my party was pretty lame (only 2 of the 5 were eating). Already been mentioned but the selection is awesome. All STL area taps (except at the time they had Deschutes Twilight). They have two serving sizes - 9 oz for $3 or $4 and 16 oz for $6 or $7. The food was great. Amazing fries with a myriad of choices for dipping sauces. The Mediterranean Lamb Burger was insanely good. I could see this being a great place to take the kids after a Cardinals game (about a 6 block walk).

I don't eat meat, so I bristled a bit when my colleagues told me this was the place they'd decided we would all sup. What's worse, I was in bad need of some ethanol (so as to block off the DTs), and the pastel, Disney-looking sign made mention only of the joint's burgers and shakes.

"Do they at least have beer?"
"Ohh, you'll see."

See I did. They had 30 taps, 29 of which were locally brewed, and by any standard that is awesome.

The place seems design to appealed to slightly older hipsters with children. Like, the waitresses are waiffish and tattooed, but not heroin-addled or sleeve-tattooed.

The decor looks like an Ikea set piece, and all the furniture is a little neat-looking but also a little chintzy looking. Some of the touches are nice, though. For example, everything comes in a mason jar--even the beer, even the salt--and for some reason I think this is cute. Actually, "cute" is a really good word for this place, is at simultaneously acknowledges and dismisses its ersatz feel. The appeal of this place has got nothing to do with earnestness. It's like Disneyland in that way--pleasant but cartoonish, nice to visit but you'd never make it your regular hangout.

The food was pretty good--it's hard to find a decent veggie burger. The waitstaff was nice, but it was clear beer was a secondary concern. The food prices were reasonable but the beer prices were quite high. But both of these aren't really huge problems, because like I said this isn't the kind of place you're going to want to make your regular hangout. It's certainly worth a stop, though.

bailey's range is the newest joint by bailey's. it is essentially a burger and milk shake joint it's about a block from The Bridge. what is unique is that this place has 30 taps, all local craft beer. when you walk in you notice a long, and i mean long, tables where you sit down and eat. you will be literally shoulder to shoulder with strangers. there is also table options on the 2nd level. it's an older building transformed so the decor is very urban and industrial. the quality is top notch. the ice cream is made on site, the burgers have various options including veggie and vegan. the 30 taps are al local craft beer to MO, although St Louis was all i noticed. there is one rotating guest for out of town beers. most of the options were newer breweries like 2nd shift, urban chestnut, and some old familiar ones like schlafly. back to the food, the veggie burger i had was unique, and they have a huge selection of meat burgers for those that want a meat burger, the fries and top notch with various dipping sauces. my wife had a peanut butter milk shake. price wise, beers range from $3-$5 range, typically in the $4 range. proper glass ware is used. food is about $10-$15 a person depending on what you get. i will return for sure, and seeing that The Bridge is a block away and carries 50 or so craft beer taps, you really cannot go wrong.
