Stopped here on a recent business trip.
A - It was a Sunday night, but it was certainly a high quality tap house. Beer was front and center. They were filming for an advertisement as well.
Q - Excellent tap list, and the food was exceptional.
Serv: good, but could have been better.I was left with an empty half sample glass for far too long. In retrospect, I probably should have thanked her since I was pulling down the high ABV.
Sel: Excellent regional and national tap list. Had some Avery, Cathedral, Schflay, etc.
Food: The meat and cheese plate was very solid. Cheese selection was a bit pedestrian.
Good place to go in DT STL. I'll have to dedicate a night to this place rather than to share it with the Schlafly tap room.

Three trips for me so far to The Bridge. It has a comfortable bar downstairs and a nice dining area up top overlooking the bar. The vibe is laid back, though a late night visit found a much more polished crowd. Huge doors on the front of the space open during nice weather letting in tons of light and fresh air. The Bridge is completely non-smoking too.
Beer is the star with 36+ currently on tap (selections in the cellar are available even though it entails the staff doing a flight of stairs - tip accordingly), with 21 more taps soon to be added. About 100 bottles as well, though I've not even started to dig in there. Everything is solid craft beer or quality imports with an emphasis on local offerings. Taps change really quickly, and lots of limited releases show up.
Serving size choices are great - 4/12/20/64 ounce are available. Prices vary depending on the beer, but almost all are very reasonable $5 for a 20 oz pint of Founder's Red's Rye? Yes, please.
Food menu is not large, but everything I've had (Cuba, Missouri sandwich; Hot Chedder Burger; cheese plate; various desserts - 4 oz. pours are a Godsend for matching with dessert . . .) has been excellent. Lots of quality local ingredients are sourced, and the kitchen opts for simple preparations that let them shine.
A great addition to the St. Louis beer scene.

Headed to Bridge on a recent trip to STL.
Last time went to Baileys Chocolate Bar, a sister restaurant.
Busy Saturday night. Place was full of people.
Service was fast to get a two seater.
Noticed a large number of draught taps on the way in.
Large bar on the first floor, we were seated on the second overlooking the bar.
Food is a mix of salads, Meat and Cheese boards (Prix Fixe and ala carte), "Pots" like Pork Bolognese and Campanelle Pasta (was small but very good). Food is "upscale", but appropriate for the ambiance of the place. Definitely beer and wine friendly food. The Cheese boards are similar to fare you might get in a Belgium bar (minus the pickled onions).
Emphasis is about the atmosphere and the food, and the beverages to go with. Also emphasis on local and natural (e.g. grass fed beef, etc) products.
Service was good. The waiter admitted he did not know the latest "guest" tap and quickly retrieved the info.
The best thing about this place is that they allow draft 4,12,20, and 64 oz options. So, you can choose to taste a bunch things and not get blitzed, or go for the 64oz option and share with a group. It was nice to try the selection in the 4 oz option. This is normally only something brewpubs do. I wish more places did this. All the beer I tasted was fresh despite the large number of taps.
I would like to go back to this place. They had a few bottles of Belgium imports that I had not found in the Boston Area.
I could not help but compare this place to Lord Hobo, in case anyone know it in Cambridge MA. Not the same, but similar.
The wine list looked interesting, but I focused on the beer list.

OK, I'll break the ice and review this place. Can't believe nobody has, yet. My visit was a few weeks ago, and I didn't go in there and take notes with a review in mind, but here's my minimalist review from memory...
We walked in on a Saturday afternoon to find a long bar with 36 taps on the right. Tables lined up to the left, and directly at the back beyond the bar area. There was also a loft area with more table seating. The place was not very crowded, and based on the conversations overheard, was populated mostly by people that live nearby.
The tap beers were all craft and import (no macros) and there were a few somewhat hard to find beers available. No complaints about selection. Beers were available in 4-oz, 12-oz, 20-oz, and growler fills were also an option. In addition, there is a bottle list of craft, Belgian, etc., numbering about 150 or so.
Food was a bit upscale - not standard pub grub. Cheese boards, charcuterie, salads, creative sandwiches, pots, appetizers, and the like. We tried two of the pots (braised beef/sweet potato orzo and roasted chicken crimini mushroom), and they were pretty tasty.
Service was friendly and competent, but as mentioned, it was not crowded, so make of that what you will.
All in all, a nice addition to the downtown beer options. No parking of its own that I could tell, so it will often be a bit of a chore to go there, but we'll be back.
