These guys have made a bit of an effort to make this place feel less like a standard industrial unit taproom. Theyíve thrown up some funky wallpaper, put in some nice seating, and generally made the place feel pretty cozy. My luck deserted me again as I visited right as a brew bus tour was arriving for a tour and tasting. Thus, I donít blame my bartender for being a bit curt in her service. As for the beers, there were about 8 on tap. The hoppy stuff was quite tasty. The less said about the berliner weiss, the better. Flights are limited to 4 beers of your choosing, so youíll need to combo up to try everything available. Foodís available from what looked like a chef in residency. Overall, Iíd definitely stop in again. Itís actually not a bad walk from Busch Stadium, so this might be a handy pregame spot if youíre in town for a game.

In town on a business trip and stopped in on the night of 7/24. The trip here was rather interesting as having stopped by Fields Foods first to grab a few beers for my hotel afterwards. Coming from that direction, my Google Maps Navagation app sent me straight through the projects, (look kids, prostitute, drug dealer). I was in a brand new 2014 Ford Escape rental that was bright red. I stood out like a sore thumb! Every head in there turned to stare at me, including the participants of the drug deal going down in the middle of the street that I rode past! This was just a few blocks from the brewery. So I was a little sketchy going to this place. But once past the projects itís more of an industrial area. And 4 Hands is an amazing addition to this area. They had some nice outside furniture and a few people siting out there. Inside there was a long, large bar and plenty of seating. Very clean and nicely laid out. Great use of the space. I grabbed a seat at the bar next to the huge window with a view inside of the brewing area. Their operation is a lot larger than I had expected. 13 brews on tap, all theirs. I opted for a Chocolate and Vanilla Brown Ale first and the Chocolate Milk Stout afterward. Both were extremely well done and tasty! Bartender was very friendly and was quick to serve me. Did not try any food, so I canít speak on that. Great place and excellent beers!

Itís a pretty standard tap room look and feel., but thatís not a bad thing. Itís not trying to be anything else. I didnít have their food on this occasion, but did sample a few of their brews (of course). They had friendly and prompt service, didnít get a chance to talk too much with the staff about beer, but theyíre very warm and welcoming. The selection is about on par with most tap rooms, so you have a selection of 4 of their mainstays, plus 4-6 taps worth of seasons, limited, and experimental releases. Itís a little off the beaten path (but then again, arenít most good micro brewersí tap rooms?), but itís worth the trip to sample the brews.

A very cool space with a nice tap room that has a clean industrial feel and a beautiful brewery. Bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. A good number of taps were available with samplers possible. No food available but the prices were nice. I really enjoyed my visit.

Stopped in during RBSG 2014 Bus Tour.

This place was one of my favorites during the trip. Somewhat of a small tasting room that has windows into the brewhouse, which is sort of cool. Long bar to sit at as well as some tables throughout the space. Lots of beers on tap (10-12), as well as a number of bottles and cans. My overall score is sort of influenced by the quality of the beers they had.

Service was quick and friendly, even with a packed house. They also have cocktails and coffee (on tap) here for those that care.

Only complaint about this place was essentially making a tour of the brewhouse and the attic of the brewhouse compulsory in order to try one of the beers they set out for us. Normally not a big deal, but when itís 95 degrees and 70% humidity outside, itís only going to be more miserable inside a brewery where they are actively making beer. Perhaps a first world problems sort of complaint, but so be it.

Visited during RBSG bus tour. Looks very unimpressive from the outside, but the inside rocks! Awesome open space, great ambiance and decor, great wooden furniture, very cool feel. Wonderful service. Patient, knowledgeable, accommodating bartenders. Nice selection of above-average house beers. I was pretty pleased with this place, one of the high lights of my tour.

Part of the RBSG 2104 Bus Tour. Really had a good time here. All the employees are friendly... from the bartenders all the way up to the brewmaster. The food was great; catered, but great. Terrific tour. Great selection of beers. Comfortable atmosphere. Excellent BA Imperial Stout.

Visited on the RBSG 2014 bus tour. Nice selection of house beers with a few surprises. Very good beers. Didnít try their food since Pappyís Smokehouse catered a nice buffet for everyone. Friendly staff. Well worth a stop, look forward to coming back next time Iím in St. Louis.

A very nice large brewpub with a patio and free parking. Service was great, with helpful and knowledgeable staff. Selection was quit a few of their own, but good stuff. Value was good. A great brewery that has great beer. A must in my book.
