Best Beer Selection in a Bar St. Louis 2011 - 33 Wine Shop & Tasting Bar
1913 Park Ave.
St. Louis, MO 63104
Though a wine bar by name, 33 Wine Shop & Tasting Bar has always done right by beer. Indeed, original owner Jake Hafner is now opening a craft brewery, the Civil Life Brewing Company, in Tower Grove South. Dylan Mosley is the head brewer at the Civil Life, and for many years the beer list at 33 — as the place is known to regulars — was his responsibility. The list that Mosley built features numerous examples of the American craft-beer boom of recent years, but it also showcases the classic beers from Germany, Belgium and the United Kingdom to which the new generation of American brewers pays homage. The current regime at 33 has maintained Mosley's high standards. Of special note is the oft-rotating draft selection, which, like the list of bottled beers, highlights great beers both American and imported, many of which are rarely available on tap locally.
