Met up with Homer321 and the brothers Nielsen here before heading to Busch Stadium for the baseball game.

A gem in STL. They have 50 something taps, lots of which are local gems. Nice brick and wood interior. Sort of dimly lit, a bit more upscale. Pleasant wait staff, too.

Prices for the most part were fair. Very easy to access location in the heart of the downtown area. Walkable from the ball park and many other beer spots (as well as being one of the closer beer locations to the RBSG hotel).

What a fantastic find. They have over 50 taps and theyíre all local and regional crafts or quality belgians plus an extensive bottle selection. They have any of their drafts available in 4 oz. pours as well as 12 and 24 ounce pours plus the bartenders seemed to know and care a lot about beer. They also have over 200 different kinds of wine as well as a number of artisinal liquors. I also loved that they had their own menu available all night. (I especially loved their mac and cheese.) I really enjoyed my time here.

Another winning recommendation from the Ratebeer universe. Neat little space right in downtown STL. Whereís the keg room for this Olympic tap list!? Ate lunch with my Mom and Dad and the sandwiches were outstanding. Service was spot on too! New favorite in STL.

(Visited 10/2013): Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar is located in downtown St. Louis on Locust Street between 10th and 11th. Metered parking is available in the surrounding area, as are a couple garages.

The inside opens up to bar area with brick walls, ceiling fans and cool chandeliers. Behind the bar are shelves full of various bottled spirits, wines and beers and a library-style rolling ladder so the bartender can access them. The long line of tap handles is also visible behind the bar. There is an upper level as well with additional seating.

The draught list consists of around 50 beers, with many regional brewers represented like Boulevard, Perennial, Schlafly, Sixth Row, Civil Life and 4 Hands. Sampler sizes are available. A couple hundred bottles as well, again with many nearby breweries represented like 2nd Shift, Schlafly, Boulevard and Crown Valley. They also had a collaborative bottle of Chocolate Ale from a sister location called Baileyís.

Service on a weekday afternoon was good. The bartender was well-versed in the beer selection and friendly.

I did not have any food on my visit.

All in all I was pleased with my visit here and would definitely put Bridge near the top of the list for future visits to St. Louis.

Came here twice during my short stay in St. Louis. Fancier atmosphere though no one cared when I rolled up in shorts and sandals. Friendly staff. Excellent tap list with a large selection. Almost all the beers on tap were quite impressive: Boulevard, Bells, Het Anker, De Dolle, Anchor and then local offerings from 4 Hands, Civil Life, and 2nd Shift. These local offerings were very impressive. Fresh kegs- wow these were good. Food is high end gastropub. Really, you need to eat here or you are doing yourself a disservice. My only qualms were that the service was always slow to almost insanely slow (one afternoon we had one server for 14 tables) and the tap list was outdated for 2 days in a row, which is annoying.

PROS: Great location, great opening hours, insanely good food, good prices, awesome beer selection, excellent local beer offerings.

CONS: slow to ridiculously slow service two days in a row that almost forced us to pay for drinks and leave before ordering dinner, outdated tap list for multiple days in a row. I asked what kegs were replacing the ones that had kicked and they did not know or said that it would take a day to put on a new keg. Are you effing kidding me? NO air conditioning in the top floor left us sweltering up in the loft where the tables are for two days in a row. The server did apologize to us and comped some of our beers since we waited 30 minutes to order our food. Not her fault. She was working FOURTEEN tables by herself.

So, turn on the air conditioning, hire more staff, and update your tap list!!! Holy cow.

The ambiance here is very chill and classy. Itís a spacious brick building with a wooden bar downstairs and tables and couches upstairs. There are large wooden shelves behind the bar housing fine liquors, wine and beer. The beer selection is extensive featuring a great mix of locals, micros and imports. Prices are great. Iíve noticed itís comparatively affordable to drink craft beer in St. Louis bars. Drafts are available in 4 oz, 8 oz, 16 oz, and growlers. The bartender was superb as well. We were out on a very slow Sunday night and this was one of the best stops.

Very nice and trendy bar with a downstairs and upstairs. Very long and nice taproom downstairs. Service was very good, although beer knowledge was not imparted, they did know what they had. Selection was a great choice of locals with many out of state and a large bottle selection. They serve 4oz pours. Food was high end and pricey, but very nice. Prices were good for the type of place you are in. A great must, if you can.

Great selection of beers on tap. Absolutely nothing to complain but I liked Baileyís Range more. Definitely worth a visit.

The Bridge is a fairly inconspicuous storefront on Locust downtown, and looks more like a trendy cafe than one of the best beer bars in the city. There seemed to be more than the 36 taps this and the website claim, but maybe Iím wrong. The tap list was two full pages long when we were there, and everything was still available- I would have guessed it was a lot more than 36. Taps had plenty of New Belgium, Avery, Odell, OíFallon, Schlafly, Bellís, Founders, Cathedral Square, Six Row, Abita, New Holland, Boulevard, Great Divide, Lagunitas, Southern Tier, Arcadia, some Belgians, and more. We didnít eat but the place seems to have great cheese/meat platters, appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and a few other things. The atmosphere is clean, cool, and hip. There is minimal seating on the first floor where the bar is, but lots of tables upstairs. Service was friendly and good. Iíll definitely be back here soon and Iíll probably order some food this time.

Visited late on a friday evening and was one of only a handful of customers. Pleasant upscale ambiance. I liked the chandeliers made from tree branches. The service definitely came up short. My bartender asked what I wanted as soon as I sat down then disappeared after I said I needed a second . If your bar has 55 bloody taps, at least give me 30 seconds to look at the menu. Also, this is one of those bars with a decent sized bottle list that doesnít bother to keep their menu updated. I leafed through the list, saw Hommage listed at a totally reasonable price, then was met with a chortle when I ordered it. Paperís cheap. Update your menus and donít make me feel like an asshole for ordering something youíre advertising as in stock. In the end I drank a lovely glass Cuvee Dry Hopping, paid my bill, and went to have fun elsewhere.
