Visited late afternoon on a Wednesday and it was busy. Good vibe with folks just off work from downtown. Food looked good but I didn't partake. Really enjoyed the beers, had a hard time choosing what I wanted to bring home. Service was good. They didn't have the t-shirt I wanted in my size, but I settled for a good second choice.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon while a Cards game was going on down the street. ProTip: parking near the brewery on game day is not suggested.

Downstairs is very much like a tourist tap room. All the swag/to-go beer is down there, there's a bar, and some tables. Visiting here is a worthy experience.

But upstairs is a giant hall that's a different experience altogether. The game was broadcast on the wall, and there's a row of arcade games/skee ball you can play for free. The taps appeared to be the same on both floors.

Stopped in for lunch and a couple beers on a Saturday afternoon. There is a small bar and some tables, plus another room upstairs but we didn't go up there. There is also a food counter that you need to order food seperately. Beer is mostly pales, IPAs, with a couple of others like pils, goose, wit, and a brown. Bar service was good but the food counter person seemed annoyed to take my order. The two beers I drank were decent but not great.

Great beer, cool atmosphere. Only downside is that some of the really good brews are only available for a month or two each year. Food menu is small, but good.

Stellar setup, clean, spacious and no shortage of awesome beers on tap. BA bottle list available. Loyal staff, wouldn't budge on my attempts to buy a bottle to go. The upstairs space is fantastic, exposed wood and full on warehouse feel...it is a warehouse so it should look like one. There on a Sunday during football season so they had projectors for games. Free arcade games! Great ones too like Super Mario and Mortal Kombat. Beers on tap for everyone, even my grandma got down with the saisons. Much love for 4Hands!! A must stop every time I pass through St. Louis.

Visited on 3/10/17, later at night.

Was pleased that the taproom was open until midnight.

Kitchen was closed, which I knew would be a possibility due to how late we arrived, but the staff was super helpful recommending places to find good food so late.

Service was great, beer was awesome, and I was happy that they had so much of their beer available for to-go purchase.

Will definitely visit again if/when I visit St. Louis again.

Love their beer especially the IPA's. They have an excellent spring Festival called Lupulin. Worth every penny. Food isn't bad the beer is just so much better. Cheers!

Went during Madagascar release party.

Place was obviously packed for such a special release, but even with that I had a good experience. The line moved quickly for the release because downstairs had 4-5 cashiers, and up stairs was a large open drinking area with tables, games and bathrooms. Despite the place being packed, the bartenders were right there as soon as I showed up to get another drink. They were friendly and curtious. I wish the tap list was more robost with selection but there was enough there for everyone to find something they liked. Next time I'm in St.Louis I wouldn't hesitate to stop here.
