Have been there twice and sat outside both times. A beer menu that is beyond impressive. Always new stuff. Food has been good both times but is the secondary reason that I go. Those 50 some taps and wonderful bottle list is. It is located in my favorite area of St. Louis, the U City Loop area. There is always so much going on there and people watching is great.

The Loop is a fun area of town and this is toward the western end of it. I went to plenty of shows there in college before the big fire, and itís a totally different-looking place now. Instead of a smoky, low-lit, neon-decorated place, the new Ciceroís is bright, clean, and decorated with art. The clientele hasnít changed, which is good. The music venue is still there. The food is decent, with great St. Louis style pizza, huge salads, and a lot of sandwiches, burgers, appetizers, entrees, and pasta dishes. Probably over 100 bottles, with a wide range of styles and places represented. The 40-50 taps also represent a wide range of styles and local, regional, national, and international brews. Huge selection, even if not the most exciting stuff around, so you can pretty much always find something new. Iíll keep coming back here.

Great selection of beer on tap, one of the best in the area. Food is good. Worth a trip.

Great bar for beer and pizza. 50 tap handles and a lot of bottle. Could use some updating, but overall a great experience.

Stopped in for lunch today and was pleasantly surprised. I expected it to be good, but it was even better. Iíd guess they had 65-ish beers on tap with many, many other bottles. Service sitting at the bar was fantastic... I asked about how a couple of kolsches compared and I was given samples to check them out. Just a sip or so, but a really nice touch. Food was superb. I had the Philly wrap and recommend it.

this is a good place for draft beer fans. they have two bars both of which sport a crap tone of tap heads, probably over sixty between them. proper glassware is not always employed. food here can be good, the pizza is pretty great. however it depends on which pot head drops your fries, or which waitress fucks up your order. it can also be a bad time. plus you have to like hippies because they love this place. a lot of jam bands play here in the second room where one of the two bars is. there are also pool table and video games if youíre into that stuff. mostly imported stuff on tap without a lot of surprises but none the less good choices.

This place is kind of strange. It is split into a "chain" feeling family restaurant, beer bar area with pool tables and video games and a back/seperated dingy room where the bands play. The taps are extensive, but not overly impressive. Same with the bottle collection - a LOT to choose from, just nothing really exciting or unusual. (I hate to say that, it makes me feel like my days of discovering lots of great beers are coming to an end:( )
I had tap selections Schlafly seasonal, St Bernardus, La Chouffe and a bottle of Sam Smith Oatmeal. They did have a few bottles of Goose Island BCS in the cellar. Definiately worth a stop if youíre in the area.

Located on the "Loop". Quite busy Italian place with a relatively good selection of draught and bottled beers. I ended up having a Bernardus Prior 8 on tap for dessert. Food was not bad, although nothing too spectacular. Lots of families with young kids. No real separation between the smoking and non- sections, in case thatís a factor for you. This place was recommended so highly and built up that I couldnít help but be just a little disappointed, I think. Actually only has one shared bathroom upstairs, a little odd.

decent bottle selection. (found out they had old bottles of expedition after i left) lots of taps, but not a lot of good beer on them. great service even with the large college crowd. very friendly staff that chatted with me a bit while trying to get the tv to work. did not try the food, iíll be back if i am ever in the area again.
