One of the best places around to find a wide variety of taps and bottled beers. We tried a few and decided to take some others with us. No food at this time, although they will order from local establishments for you. They serve the brew in the correct glassware, quite impressive. Will visit again and hope to try some other taps.
The Chesterfield location of iTap is way, way out there for a city dweller like me. Itís easily a half hour from downtown St. Louis, down in the strip mall-infested flood plain of the Chesterfield Valley, and not far from Spirit of St. Louis Airport. As with the Soulard location, there are 40+ taps that rotate frequently and 500 or so bottles, so the selection is killer. Also like the Soulard location, there is no kitchen but you can bring in whatever food you want. The service is solid and the waitresses are hot. There isnít much to say about the atmosphere except that itís in a newish building near the end of what has to be the worldís longest strip mall. Inside, itís a beer oasis, though. I had a great time here but unfortunately wonít be making it back much, save for the occasional special event, because itís so freaking far away from the city.
Quite a hall from downtown but a pretty cool place. They have a whole wall of coolers and about 30-40 taps, including Mikkeller. Pour a huge variety and seem to always be fresh. Iíll have to check out the new location downtown. This had a very suburban feel to it and it didnít help that it was in the middle of nowhere.

The best feature of the iTAP is that they rotate the draught selection on a regular basis, so you always have new beers to try. The worst feature is the location is in the middle of nowhere, which will be remedied shortly, as they are currently building out a second location on 9th St. in Soulard, just south of downtown. I also really like that they sell the bottled beer to go at great retail prices.
Ok so my moto has always been quality over quantity-well this place has quality and quantity. however, it becomes overkill after a while. Everytime i have been here, the place is packed, which is a good thing for the fact that people in STL are enjoying good beer on a regular basis. However, it gets to be a bit much sometimes-have to wait a long time to get served. Worth a visit if your in the area for sure, but i guess im biased towards The Stable.
What can I say. Cantillon served at a bar in St. Louis, which means in the middle of nowhere! Great selection from around the world. I will visit this place again if I am ever forced to go back to the big STL.
New place in what I consider a much too difficult location. The service was nice and apparently had been trained in converting A-B drinkers. It is easily the largest selection outside of 270, but I hold reservations because for the two orders I placed I had to go to my third option due to limited supply - donít let the massive menu overwhelm you. The menu itself was difficult to read and clearly not updated - when enjoying the outdoor seating the menu is your only connection to the selection.
If Iím out that far again Iíll stop by but itís not worth a trip for me.
Opened 2/1/09. Excellent beer bar, with a wide selection of beers. Very knowledgable and friendly staff.
Although no food is prepared at the location, several local restaurants deliver and food can be brought in.
Very limited supply of "Macro" beers.
