It doesnít get much better than this. Huge selection of bottles and taps which change constantly - usually the best selection in St. Louis. The brick restaurant has lots of room inside with an assortment of places to sit including couches and comfy chairs. The outside patio is very large with an interesting fountain. You can bring food with you, order-in, or go to the attached pizza place next door and order. They will bring it to you at the bar. The service is great and the bartenders know a large portion of the "regulars." Events and special pricing is a regular coinsurance here. They also sell bottles to go.
International Tap House (iTap) is finally in the city. I am never out in Chesterfield, nor would I want to make the 35 minute drive out there just to try it and have to drive back drunk. The new place is a nice rehab of an old Soulard building with a modern interior and nice patio on the side. The tap list is ever-changing- 8 new ones were added the day I first visited- and the bottle selection is easily the best of any bar in the city. If you can legally sell any particular brewerís stuff in Missouri, this place has it. I had a Bellís Poolside, Epic Armageddon (both of which I was surprised and happy to see), and several others. The bartenders seemed friendly and knowledgeable. They donít serve food here, which sucks, and they donít have any wine or liquor, which doesnít matter to beer drinkers here. You can order food from outside for delivery, though, so they keep some menus at the bar. Great place, and I will be visiting here a lot.
Close to the farmers market in Soulard. The place on the outside does not look like much but inside the place opens up with plenty of seating at the bar or the many couches and bar tables. The taps along the wall behind the bar take some studying to pick out the one you want. There are 40 and they are probable half craft and half import but anyone who is into beer would find something they would like. The bottle selection is extensive and I saw a few bottles that I have not seen in stores around here. Again no food is served here but they can order in from other establishments in the area. Overall this is an excellent meeting place for friends for a night out in Soulard.
Spent this past weekend in St. Louis and this was by far the best beer stop we made. The atmosphere is very laid back. When we visited they had some reps from Stone there and they tapped the 10th Anniversary . Huge bottle selection and 44 taps, all of which were awesome. If you are in town visiting this has to be a must stop. The taps were a tad pricey but it was very much worth it.

yet another place that has opened in STL since i moved away. an AWESOME bar-great staff, proper glassware and a really cool atmosphere. this is a MUST for those in or visiting STL. One of the best beer bars in the region. I always run into old friends everytime i come back to this place. This IS the go-to beer bar in STL. The Bridge would be second.
This is what I think a beer bar should be. Great and diverse selection, bartenders were very knowledgeable and helpful - they even had suggestions of what we might like. No food on site but you can go next door for some great pizza. My wife and I were able to sit in comfortable chairs and watch the World Cup while our server (I wish I could remember her name) brought us everything we could ask for. The only knock on the place is that the beer menu was a bit outdated; some of the beers on the menu were not actually on tap. Highly recommend; we went here and the Bridge Tap House in the same night and this one was considerably better.
I swear Iíd entered notes on this place before, but guess not ...
Definitely the top beer-drinking spot in STL, unless you want a brewery-specific site (Perennial, Schlafly). Huge beer list, definitely beer-minded staff, nice vibe, pleasant neighborhood. Go!
