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.

Big place with a cool bar and lots of seating for the restaurant folk. Visited on a Wednesday late afternoon and there were lots of families and folks from downtown who had just gotten off work. Beer selection was awesome. I had a hard time choosing what to try, and was generally happy with my selections. Service was just okay. Got a very cool t-shirt and some beer to take home. Fish and chips were awesome.

Not enough APAs in the world can make that BIT worth the 13 bucks. And most of their beers or above average replacements for AB. Go down the street to... well anything.

Ate at 7pm on a Friday night. Plenty of seating available, as place was about half full. Large selection of beers available. The beers are average to good, you can see their reviews separately. Service was good, but they were not busy. The food was also good, nothing was bad but nothing stood out either. Overall it's a good place to experience part of the St. Louis food scene.

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.
