The Six Best Craft Beer Makers in St. Louis
(1220 South Eightth Street; 314-436-1559)
Where to begin? The quality of 4 Hands barrel-aged brews is impeccable, and each brings something unique to the 4 Hands repertoire. Kevin Lemp opened the brewery in 2011 after years of experience with E&J Gallo winery. The same attention to detail that goes into wine making is evident in 4 Hands' flavor combinations and innovative methods. "No Place Like Home" features a double red aged in Cabernet wine barrels for 6 months, while "Contact High" is made by adding pacific northwest hops and dry hopping with orange zest to create a light, summery beer that, according to the website, pairs well with...lawn mower. Oh, who are we kidding? These beers pair well with almost everything, especially our mouths.
