The layout was pretty open with the food near the front of the store and the coolers extending across the back. The singles and 750s are separated and located in the back right corner.
I didn't see any dusty bottles or beers past date. I looks like they rotate their stock.
The employees were attentive and at least three different ones offefed to help me find something. They also loaded my purchase onto the dolly and took it to the car for me.
The selection was better than any other store in the region, they had plenty of Lagunitas, Bells, and Founders that you don't usually see in other stores. They even had a case of Boulevard Lovechild, but at $20 a piece.
The prices were noticeably higher on some items like Stone 4packs. They were $12 when the same 4pack at Macadoodles was $8.
I was overall pleased and will probably start shopping there when I am in town.

Great organization, very open & non cluttered
Spent $260 on beer, but got a couple of tired/stale beers. Next time I will check those labels closely
Service was friendly & helpful
Fantastic selection, best I've seem in Missouri, to include most of the upper echelon stores in the KC area. Tons of beers I've never seen Evil Twin, Urban Chestnut & Perenial just to name a few. There were a few breweries I didn't see, but only a few (Nebraska & Cantillion come to mind)
There was a ton of gourmet food, looked good, but was there for the beer
Prices were not good, my piddly stores in SW Mizzou soundly kick their butt. They did give me a mixed case discount, for which I am grateful. I will be back their selection eclipses any store within 200 miles

There are many Brown Derby Liquor stores around the city but as far as craft brew goes this one is a must visit. I was lucky enough to show up for a KBS tasting that they had on Friday when I was in town. They have beer tasting regularly so check their facebook. I met a guy who spent about thirty minutes with me walking me around the store and suggesting some great beers based on my liking. I even came out with some hard to find goodies. They had a great single beer selection although it was a bit pricey. Overall, great selection and great customer service.
