It's been almost a year since I've been out to Lukas, in that time they've done wonders with the store. The beer selection now contains anything that you can get in the St. Louis region. If they can get it, they have it. I don't see how they can do better than that.
Service is excellent, especially if Matt (a BA) is working. He knows his stock and is quite helpful. On top of that every Saturday, he's out there doing a beer tasting. That's right, he's out there advocating beer.
Beer is kept in good condition, it seems like some of the problems I had earlier with old beer have been addressed.
Kudos to the staff at Lukas for really turning it up in the beer department.

I must admit I have been prone to being stoked about not so outstanding beer selections (I'm form Oklahoma) but this store seemed to have a good selection of beer from some of the best in the business, plus some of the more rare/limited offerings from such heralded breweries as Nebraska and Goose Island.
The place was clean and well organized, and the prices were good overall, even great in some instances. There was a large refrigerated section in the very back that had a wide selection to choose from for those who want an array of cold brews for immediate drinking (must be nice).
There was also a grand selection of glassware which nearly spanned an entire section of shelving from top to bottom. Sometimes I get just as much pleasure out of collecting and pairing glassware with my brews as much as I do drinking the brews themselves, so needless to say, this was quite a treat.
Lukas Liquors packs a lot of beer in not a lot of space. I was really impressed by the customer service, which included curbside delivery. If you find yourself traveling I-44 through St. Louis I would recommend you take the short jaunt to Lukas and grab yourself some goodies.

If your shopping for wine this place is A+.
I wish the beer section of Lukas was bigger. Its jammed into one corner of the store but the selection is still decent.
The greatest selection is in the single bottle refrigerated area.
A huge selection of chilled bottled beer from all over the world can be found here. And you can build your own six pack from these selections. I'd be great if the room temp beer of six packs and cases were this diverse.
Overall, it's probably one of the best places in STL county to buy beer.

I've been a Lukas customer for several years now, but realized I hadn't yet reviewed them.
The beer section stretches from the back, right corner of the store, follows a long row of cooler doors along the back of the store, and ends with a large macro section.
The craft/import section includes:
-- A long ~25ft wall shelving unit w/ 5 levels of shelves, which holds single bottles ranging from 8.5oz - 750ml+. When facing the wall, the left 3/4 hold import bottles, and the right 1/4 holds craft bombers/750ml bottles.
--A small island of shelves that hold sought-after trade brews like FW Abacus, Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus, Nebraska Black Betty, and Saison-Brett.
--An aisle of mix-a-six craft & import brews.
--3+ aisles of 6pks, 12pks, variety pks.
--~10 glass-door coolers with cold craft & import single bottle & multi-pack selections
--1/2 BBL & 1/6 BBL sales for those of us that have kegerators.
In addition to the selection, the service at this store is fantastic. By far, the best bottle shop in the STL area!

Lukas is luckily 5 minutes from my home. You can find all year round and seasonals from breweries such as Bells, Founders, Goose Island, Schlafly, Stone (just came to MO), etc.. To give you an idea, Lukas received 8ish cases of the most recent HopSlam. Some of the highlights I've picked up here over the past year: GI Bourbon County Vanilla and Rare, Bells Hopslam, Founders KBS.
While it is 'way out west' of downtown, there is quick turnover so very little old product sits on the shelf. A Mix-a-6 is also available and even pretty limited things are offered with it, albeit lasting shortly!
