The number of excellent craft-beer bars in St. Louis continues to grow, but with 55 taps and more than 200 bottles, Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar sits atop the list. What separates Bridge is the massive and constantly evolving draft menu, on which you can find the brewery, beer name, where said beer hails from, style and ABV. If you feel a bit overwhelmed, the knowledgeable staff can help guide you on your journey. The vast array of beers include local favorites like Perennial and Civil Life, national brands Deschutes, Founders and Bells, and more obscure, hard-to-find names, like Evil Twin, or several of the hard-to-pronounce Belgium-based beers. The best part is that you can sample these beers in 4-, 12-, 20- and 64-ounce pours, which allows you either to tour the menu in small quantities or enjoy your chosen brew in one intense sitting. Bridge provides an intimate, conversation-friendly environment — no inundation of colossal flat-screens, no blaring bands, just a casual spot to kick back and enjoy your beverage. All told, Bridge Tap House offers a chance to always try something new and enjoy a night focused solely on beer. Tough to think of a better way to spend an evening.
