While in town on business one of my local company associates recommended Square One Brewery & Distillery for lunch, so I decided to give it a try. This is a very nice place located in one of St. Louis' historic districts. It is an odd combination of a micro brewery and a distillery, but it works well. The Brat Burger... More

Great beer. We had brunch. My husbands omelet was terrific. My eggs, potatoes and english muffin were cold. Wait staff were overwhelmed. Bartender looked hung over, and did not wash/wipe hands after clearing dishes, accepting cash, or before putting three olives on a skewer or squeezing a lime into a drink. Previous visits were much better. Do watch the bartender... More

Went in one day as we were bumming around town for some wings and beer. So glad we did, found a new place to go. We ended up getting a couple flights to try different beers and the were all pretty good. The wings were a treat too. I recommend this place for anyone who likes a selection of beers... More

We came for dinner on a Sunday evening, probably the only 4 people in town who weren't interested in watching the Super Bowl. The bar offered TVs, but the large dining room was fairly quiet so we could talk, drink & dine as long as we wished. Three of us were craft beer lovers and the selection was very good.... More

We loved this place! We shared a flight of beers to try 4 local brews, all of which were wonderful. My husband got the burger and I had the salmon BLT.

We really enjoyed our visit to Square One. Their signature cocktails were a great way to warm up on a cold January day. We also loved our food and tried a few of the beers as well which were also very good.

Great food. Crafts were very good. Did a flight for a reasonable price. And, they make their own spirits. I bought a whisky to go. Nice little area that appears to have a potential for growth and development. Good parking. We will go back.

Though our first two stops at other pubs were less than successful, stop # three hit the mark! Square One has a beautiful, warm, inviting vibe. We set at the bar (our preference), and enjoyed first class service, some fine brew, and a bit of one of their house brand whiskeys (impressive!). I had to try their pretzels (great) and... More

Great beer and very good lunch selection. Loved the bar area. The scotch egg was delicious and the nachos were huge.
