So I had a work project that put me up at the Hampton Inn about 2 blocks from here so I was there on three consecutive nights. First night, just popped in for a quick beer before getting ready for work the next day. Second night for dinner and a few beers and the third night for two more pints.

The building itself is pretty cool. An old brick structure with lots of exposed wood on the inside. What looked like a really small set-up on the first night turns out to have more fermenters in other rooms and is a decent sized operation.

First night there was a big post Cardinals game crowd so service was quick but I didn't really get a chance to ask about the beers or the operation. On the second night was calmer and talked extensively to a different bartender who has an obvious passion for beer (we talked about our experiences in Belgium and wanting to go back) and he knew his own products. Basically the kind of experience I love to have in an unfamiliar brewery/out-of-town city. Third night, yet another bartender was more interested in talking to a regular at the end of the bar than keeping an eye on things. It was slow and my glass sat empty and others would wander from the pool tables to the bar and stand and wait while she talked. Oh, well...

The dinner I had was a nice steak and the food I saw coming out of the kitchen all looked pretty good. The menu is pretty much pub grub but a little more extensive than most brewpubs.

There were about 10 beers available and I got through more than half of them. They were all good but I'll admit I didn't have one that would have me clamoring to get back here. But in a city dominated by you-know-who, I think they're doing a great job of trying to break through without shocking people. I would definitely recommend it if you find yourself in St. Louis.

I went in for an early lunch so I'm sure I didn't get the entire "vibe" that everyone else possibly had but the "vibe" at the time was just perfect enough for me to enjoy my AWESOME pretzel app and my hamburger with my AMAZING black IPA.

On a visit to Saint Louis, our friends took us here and it was amazing. I started out with the Raspberry Heffe first and it was a great summer afternoon beer, and then I migrated towards the Stl Brews Saison, which they partnered with the St. Louis Home Brewers Association to come up with this collaboration and it might be the best Saison I have had. The food was great as well, would recommend the Pretzels for an appetizer and the Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf Muffin for your entree.

I was glad I was able to stop by during my latest visit to St. Louis.

The Tap Room is large. I headed to the left to the barroom. There is a 20' bar that seats about 10 and there are a ton of high tops and a small lounge area with a couch and comfy chairs. There is also a stage in the barroom and I see they have bands on weekends.

Tile floors, exposed brick, beautiful high wood ceilings, wood beams, arched windows, etc. all add up to an attractive place. Note they also have a small terrace out front.

I like the menu, lots of interesting options. First time I have seen herring in white sauce any place south of MN or WI! My soup was good and the pizza was very good but a touch greasy.

17 house beers on tap during my visit. Wide range of styles. I liked everything I had.

Service was fine, not overly chatty but there when I needed a refill.

Atmosphere is harder to rate. I was there on a Tuesday for happy hour and there was only 3 people in the barroom. Cards were out of town, but still that's not much of a crowd. By 7:15 it started to fill up a bit and by the time I left around 8;30 there was a least 25 people there.

I had the grapefruit IPA and a cask American IPA while here. Both beers were very good. The food was very good. Nice little place that we walked right in and sat down at. The beer was fresh and good. I would recommend this place while in St Louis. Very good service and beers. Pretty good selection as well. I have been a fan of this brewery for a while now and it was nice to be able to visit and taste the beer as fresh as possible. These guys do a very good job.
