Square One Brewery

1727 Park Ave St. Louis, MO 63104 | St. Louis - Lafayette Square | 314-231-2537

Location Description:

Housed in an old Lafayette Square tavern that was home to an Anheuser-Busch tavern a century ago, Square One Brewery's dozen different varieties of house-crafted beer include the staples of every microbrewery -- a rich stout, a clean-tasting IPA and a tart weizen. The food is casual hearty pub fare that goes well with the full-bodied flavor of a pint: chili, beer-cheese soup, bratwurst, plus beer-battered this, that and the other. Besides the dozen microbrews on tap, the distillery side of the operation churns out its own whiskey, vodka, gin, an American tequila and three rums. A brewery and a the same building? We are there.
