The best liquor stores I have found in Kansas and Missouri. One is off of 119th and Blue Valley Pkwy, and the other is off 135th and Stateline (missouri side). Each has a slightly different selection than the other, but both have a huge selection of great craft beers, including imports. They have the standards (Big 3, Guinness, Heiny, etc) but then they have a ton of other great beers that can't be found elsewhere. Above-average cooler selection, and a well above average bomber/24oz/etc section. I spend 30+ minutes just looking at stuff every time I go there. Also, the liquor and wine selections are exceptional as well.

Fantastic store that is at the top of my list of places to stop when passing through or even relatively near to KC.

Lighting is relatively dim, beer is arranged in a sensible manner, and the selection is enormous, and full of world-class brews too. Staff has for the most part been very helpful (had one snarly lady at the checkstand on one visit, but I'm speaking more about the guys working on stocking the aisles who are more than willing to help.)
the unfortunately increasingly frequent occurence of well past prime beer that I get at Royal Liquors up the road has been nonexistent here. Good prices too. Not much else to say - well worth the 8 minute or so drive from the freeway.

Hands down, the best beer store in the Kansas City area. If you live here or just passing through and want to pick up some local fares this is the best place to go. Located about 10 minutes from 435 its not really hard to find. They have the best selection of beer in the KC metro area, and a better beer selection then the other Lukas in the area. It has low lighting, good for the beers that don’t get rotated all that often. The selection changes quite a bit, so there is always new stuff coming in. The people are really friendly and don’t mind if you ask several annoying questions. They have a blog that will tell you what is coming in. This is the best beer store in the KC area, without a doubt.

I am a Kansas City expat who moved 5 years ago. Boulevard is not distributed in Chicago, so I stock up every time I visit. When I live in KC the best "Beer" liquor store was Royal on 103rd and Stateline or Gomer's on 39th. None of these store could top the selection of Chicago's several warehouse style beer/wine emporiums. Lukas Liquor is in a class of it's own and I would make the trek out to 135th just to shop this location.

They have an extensive and up to date "u.s. micro and craft" section, followed by a European section and ending with a Belgian style area. What really did it for me was most of the shelf selection was available cold so you could enjoy it as soon as you get home. In addition they had 4 doors of individual bottles that you could mix and match to "Sample". This was great way for me to sample some of the new breweries out of St. Louis without breaking the bank on several 6 packs.

The associates were knowledgable and engaging. They spoke with me about my selection and made recommendations based on style not personal taste. The store was clean in appearance and smell (this could be due to the new construction in this part of town). The bottles were not dusty, a big pet peeve of mine.

Price wise I did not see anything out of scale with normal pricing. I spent about 200$ on Boulevard, Bell's and a few Schlafly beers. Filled up my trunk nicely.

I will be coming back to this location every time I visit the area. KC beer lover's are lucky to have such a great resource. Hopefully they can open a down town / mid town location so the other's store will step it up..

This place was a bit of a drive from downtown, KC (about 15 minutes) and I had my second thoughts as I was going down the highway, when I could have been spending more times at Grinders, but as I rolled up to this place, I had a serious Oh My God moment!! This place is huge, as in Target store huge...TONS of booze, wine and praise the lord BEER...suffice to say that if you can get it in the area, this place will have it..all the locals, regionals, impressive imports, warm, cold, cases, they even had nice Smokestack series glasses (no bargain at over $8, but I needed a nice souvenir from of my trip). Helpful and friendly staff on the floor and at the registers is always a plus. Beer Destination for sure, if in the general area this is a spot well worth driving a few extra miles for.

I have been to KC twice and each time this is my favorite place to visit. It is by far the best beer store I have every visited: If Wal-Mart were simply an alcoholics supermarket, this would be the place!

Each time I go out of town I make a list of things I hope to find when there. The majority of things on my list are here, along with items that I had overlooked and was ecstatic to find.

While there, I am usually asked if I need any help several times and the staff is somewhat knowledgable of beer and beer styles.

I have and will continue to recommend this to anyone and everyone who looks to find a beer store that exceeds every expectation.

Sort of the middle of nowhere in southern KC. Brand new store set up at the end of a shopping center-if you miss the first turn you'll have to backtrack quite a bit.
Warehouse style store. I didn't walk the wine or liquor aisles as I was in a hurry to catch my plane.
I ran into the beer guy and the store manager-nice guys. They had the best selection of Belgium beers I've seen anywhere-especially geuzes/lambics. Good selection of Midwest micros including all the Goose Island small batch. Lighting was low-good for the beer but bad for the eyesight. I'll be back whenever I return to KC.
