It's good to see another good spot for quality beer open in the city. I've been stopping in frequently since they opened in 2007.

The store is a large renovated warehouse with only half the space being used currently. Everything is well organized and clean and the beer up-to-date. The only drawbacks are nocold beer sold and making your own sixers. That's a small price to pay to find quality beers so close to my home.

Service is available to answer any questions but will not bother you.

The selection is varied and growing with every visit. Domestically, you'll find favorites such as Bell's, Great Divide, New Belgium,North Coast, Odell, and Goose Island among others. The selection of Belgian beers is strong (Trappistes Rochefort, St. Bernardus, Duvel, Houblon Chouffe, Chimay, and many others) along with a nice stable of beers from Germany, the UK, and Canada.

Prices are comparable to everyone else in the area.

Decent selection of beer although the vast majority of the store is wine and liquor. They keep their limited allocations off the shelves and only sell them to regular customers. Staff never leaves the registers but they are friendly enough when you are ready to check out.

Don't be fooled by the outside; this place is the real deal. It's a warehouse full of liquor, wine, and beer. They have a great selection and the people are always really helpful if you're trying to find something or looking for a recommendation. Also, since it's warehouse-style, the prices are better than almost everywhere else!

My favorite place to get beer, just wish it was closer. The best way to describe it is the Sam's of liquor stores. In a warehouse right off of the highway in south stl, huge wine, beer and liquor sections. I've also bought disposable flasks here as well.

Set up in a large warehouse style building. Open, with concrete floors, etc. Kind of like a miniature costco of booze. Beer aisle is down and to the right. Solid selection of stuff from the StL area in addition to a couple of shelves worth of imports and then a fair amount of domestic craft. Store employees I interacted with were friendly. In the ~45 minutes I was there I was asked twice if I needed help finding anything and was almost offered a job (tongue in cheek) a third time. Haven't been to any other liquor stores in the area, so I can't comment on comparative prices, but pretty similar to what I saw at the grocery store.
Solid, but nothing spectacular. As much as I dislike bombers (for all the reasons people have mentioned on this site and elsewhere), the fact that there are so many tantalizing brews that are only available in bomber format left me wishing they had a slightly larger availability off 220z bottles. Not bad, just not overly extensive. Also something I missed from where I used to live was the option for mix/match six packs

Was excited to stop in here after reading some online reviews and checking out their huge online selection. I went to their online store and placed an order for the specific store listed , they showed this store having a lot of great beer in stock that they did not have at other locations. Well I show up and low and behold not one of the beers I ordered was there , I ask and they check stock on the computer and it shows zero. I ask them about the online store showing them having it and I drove to their store for that and the guy back at the desk behind the beer section shrugs his shoulders and says , " yeah that's the way the online stuff goes" Why even have an online section if you are not going to at least try and keep it up to date. One of the beers has been showing in stock at this store location for 2 weeks and they said they had not had it in stock for 2 months. A little pissed off to say the least since I drove out of my way to go to this place , oh well lesson learned , if you see a beer here online you want from this store you better call ahead and ask if they have it. I will not be stopping here ever again

My go-to place in StL.
They have a great VIP program and a Waiting List that gives you a chance to grab rare and limited release beers.
Overall good everyday selection.
Convenient location for me which is why I like it.
Prices are on par with other stores in the area.
