1220 S. 8Th Street, Saint Louis, MO 63104Coming in a few months is 4 Hands Brewing Co. to Downtown St. Louis. Owner, Kevin Lemp, was nice enough to invite me down for a tour today. I am very excited to see them getting so close, you can almost taste the beer. It was very interesting to hear what he has planned as far as the beer goes and how the space is going to look when it is done. You can tell he has everything planned out to perfection.
They have some exciting beer planned for us to drink:
- Blackberry Berlinger Weiss
- Summer Saison
- Espresso Imperial Stout
- Divided Sky Rye IPA
- Single Speed Session
- Big Oatmeal Brown
- Reprise (single hop) Pale Ale - Centennial
- Double IPA
- Harvest Ale
- Barrel Aged series (they plan 4 per year, 2 American Style, 2 Belgian Style)
- plus much more...
I believe he said the bar area will have about 10 tap handles featuring their own beers plus about 4 "guest" beer tap handles.
"4 Hands Brewing Company, located in St. Louis Missouri, will provide the craft beer enthusiast a handcrafted portfolio inspired by the American Craft movement as well as Traditional Belgian and French style Farmhouse ales. 4 Hands Brewing Company will package the Core collection in 12 oz 6 packs, the Seasonal selection in 22 oz bottles, and the Barrel Aged program in 750 ml champagne bottles. The Barrel Aged Program will produce a truly unique line of beers. The use of Wine And Spirit Barrels containing an array of adjuncts (fruit, herbs, spices) in conjunction with wild yeast strains will enhance the flavors to produce a one of a kind beer." -- 4 Hands Facebook page - like them now

This is the front of the bar. The wood is from a barn that was over 100 years old.

Through this door and down the stairs will be the barrel aging room.
