If I had to guess, I’d say that Matt Thenhaus is finally living his dream. If you don’t know Matt, you’ve surely seen him around town if you’ve ever darkened the doorways of places like The Royale, Schlafly Tap Room, or Blueberry Hill.

Matt also has run the blog Sacred Beer for the past few years. Matt is one of the pillars of the local beer community. So when he told many of us that he was partnering with a few folks to open up his own bar, we were happy for him.

The effort of all of the work and time Matt has help put in is the new Fortune Teller Bar on Cherokee. This is a beer and cocktail focused bar featuring an eclectic mix of old school German beers along with some of the solid hits from breweries in the US. Beers are only available in bottles at the moment, but draft beer should be online very soon.

Open at 4PM Monday through Saturday, this should be a new spot on your craft beer gauntlet. Check out some of the photos below:
