The beer business is booming for Chesterfield-based International Tap House, which recently announced plans for two new locations, one in St. Louis and another in Colubmia, Mo.
iTap, as its frequently called, will open at 16 South Euclid AVenue, at the site of the former Loading Zone, according to a post on beer blog Hip Hops. Another blog, STL Hops, reports that is expected to open early next year.
The Columbia location is planned for 308 Ninth Street, which is in the heart of the city's downtown and borders the Mizzou campus. That location is aming for an August 2013 opening.
Co-owned by Sean Conroy and Brad Lobdell, the bar started out in Chesterfield at 161 Long Road in 2009 and then quickly expanded to Soulard in 2010. Each of the locations features around 500 beers to choose from and it's expected the new sites will follow the same game plan.
