CHESTERFIELD, Mo. — After operating for 11 years in downtown St. Louis, 4 Hands Brewing Company is expanding to St. Louis County with a culinary partner, local restaurant chain Hi-Pointe Drive-In.
The brewery's second location is scheduled to open this summer at The District in Chesterfield, which is already home to Topgolf, live music venue The Factory and more. Later this year, social pickleball concept The Real Dill will join the growing list of businesses.
4 Hands' Chesterfield location will include a 10,000-square-foot tasting room with 25 draft offerings, a free family-friendly arcade and a private event space with an oversized patio and kitchen featuring food from the Hi-Pointe Drive-In.
“I’m excited to expand westward, not only because The Staenberg Group is creating a one-of-a-kind, family-friendly experience in Chesterfield, but also because I grew up in the area and it feels good to open a location back in my childhood neighborhood," 4 Hands Founder Kevin Lemp said in the announcement. "While we remain hyper-passionate and committed to the City of St. Louis, this opportunity fits perfectly with our growth strategy."
Hi-Pointe Co-Owner Ben Hillman said he's also excited to expand into west St. Louis County.
"We’ve been collaborating with Kevin and the 4 Hands team since we started Hi-Pointe, and we’re ready to take the partnership to the next level in a shared space," Hillman said in the announcement. "Chesterfield should get ready for some crazy specials paired with the best beer in St. Louis."
4 Hands will anchor The Hub, the $4 million centerpiece to The District scheduled to open in spring 2023. The outdoor event space will include a pavilion, LED screen and stage and a turf viewing field. Sit-down restaurants with outdoor patios will surround the space.
