The beer selection at Gezellig Tap House and Bottleshop is a thing of brewed beauty. Nearly 700 different bottled varieties occupy an enormous illuminated cooler, while 28 more draft options await behind the bar. The bar-meets-bottle shop debuted in The Grove in December, providing a cozy new gathering place for beer-lovers in St. Louis. Owner and certified cicerone Brandon Cavanagh developed his concept around the Dutch idea of conviviality - gezellig - to create a place for St. Louis' booming craft beer scene to convene.
Guests can create their own six-packs to go out of selections from across the globe or simply crack open a cold one at the bar. Choose from bottles sorted by geographic region as well as seasonal special releases on tap including stouts, wild ales, sour beers and imports. There's also a selection of ciders, meads, wines, gluten-free beers, nonalcoholic options and cocktails; look for a small plates menu later this year.
