One of the best things about St. Louis is our local beer. From the world-wide brand of Anheuser Busch, to the downtown-standby of the Schlafly Taproom, St. Louis has been a hotbed of beer culture from the independent micro-breweries to the industrial scale of Busch, housed in centuries old, brick clad factories with gargoyles peering down over the ledges.
If any beer could define a town, though, it may well be City Wide. The iconic tall can is wrapped in the flag of St. Louis, a simple red, blue, and yellow illustration of the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. City Wide is made by 4 Hands Brewing Co., a home-grown microbrewery located in downtown St. Louis, visible from interstate 55 as you curve through Soulard and head for the arch. In the city, you often see 4 Hands trucks with the City Wide art on the side, delivering the local brews to bars, restaurants, and grocery stores. It is as much a symbol of the city as the flag itself.
