Glad they had it too - because while their beer is good quality - you're either drinking a fruity/sour/champagne thing or a heavily hopped pale/IPA. For my personal taste, I'd like to see some of these new places actually craft a friggin' brown/amber ale that's not hopped to death - and maybe mix in a porter/stout. I find heavily hopped beers to be relatively unimpressive, unimaginitive and unenjoyable. /old man rant.
Totally agree. I love craft beer and I'll check this place out eventually, but I haven't been yet because sours and IPAs are too overdone and I just can't get myself excited about it. Meanwhile there's only a smattering of ambers/browns/porters/stouts being brewed here, though a couple of places have started to get very good at it.
City Barrel wants to imitate Side Project Brewing in St Louis more than anything. So except a lot of Sour, Wild Ale, Wine Aged Type Beers similar to Side Project. One of the owners was very fond of Side Project Brewing and wanted to bring that here

I would expect beers like this at City Barrel in the future - http://www.sideprojectbrewing.com/la-fosse

Had lunch at City Barrel on Saturday. Impressed with the operation and the food was excellent. I drank wine.

I went in City Barrel on 1st Friday and luckily scored 2 seats at the bar. The place was packed. The bartender did a great job and our food came out quickly. The pork chop was indeed excellent. The beer was very good, too, although the names are ridiculous. I was blown away at how smoothly things were operating at full capacity so soon after opening. I think this place will do very well.

We had to keep looking at the menu over and over. Wait, WTF was the Ahoy again?

They don't have the market cornered on obscure beer names

The Cityscene article on the Hampton Inn mentions that a long-term deal was secured to provide parking in the lot to the south of the hotel between 16th and Nara. Does that realistically take that lot out of consideration for near-term development?

It depends.

It's entirely possible to write a contract that allows them to buy it out or move where they park. The same owner has the large lot on the west side of Walnut in the same block and the two lots west of Main flanking 17th. I've seen plenty of examples where parking for hotels is a block away.

It's possible they could consolidate parking, put in a garage to share and build on every lot they own without breaking any contract.
