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.

check this out if your near it. several beers on draft and an italinanpizzeria on the otherside. live bands almost every night. not sure if this shoulf be an essential rating though.
this is a top notch place in my book. I was here a few nights ago and met up with a friend and some of her friends. I was amazed at the tap seleciton. they have the best in the St Louis area for shure! I had a bells Two hearted from tap and it was nothing short of amazing. I forgot how much this beer rocks, especially from the tap! I finished it off with a 2003 Bells Expedition that only cost me $5.25. very reasonable in my book! I hope to make this a weekly place to hang out!
Definitely worth going to this one. Around 50 taps, one of which being a Bellís seasonal, another 50 bottles, and an actual beer menu. I personally had a Cave Creek Chili Beer, and washed that out with a Bellís Third Coast Old Ale, and spent only $10. The prices are very reasonable, they carry a small selection of Belgians, and the scene is pretty cool as well.
