Before returning for my 5 year undergraduate reunion at the nearby Washington University in St. Louis, I planned my attack upon The Wine & Cheese Place.

I had stopped by this place a few times in college, but never with the furious mindset of as a full-fledged beer geek intent on dropping some serious fliff and trucking it back home to the comparative beer desert that is Texas.

Now, you must understand that I consider myself a seasoned beer store visitor. I have recurring dreams of finding that rare bottle of Cantillon or old Bourbon County Stout stashed away collecting dust. Needless to say, I don't easily get overwhelmed. But when I walked into the Wine & Cheese Shop, I was like a kid in a candy store again: wide-eyed and mumbling to myself for at least fifteen minutes while my two friends browsed and shot me the occasional, concerned glare. The selection is nearly endless, with tons of european imports (Nogne, 3 Fontenein, Mikkeller, De Molen, etc) and american counterparts alike. Cold beer to go, and an equally as impressive price point. New-ish and classic releases from Odell's, Schlafly, O'Fallon, Boulevard, and Goose Island.

Staff was helpful, and although I didn't have anyone try to 'help' me while I shopped, they were kind enough to help me load the 4 cases of beer into the trunk of my car. Best $250 I've ever spent.

P.S. - their scotch selection is other-worldly as well...

Broad geographic selection of beers, including a lot of stuff (European and other global craft beer) that you just can’t find anywhere else. Great communication via social media and the blog which keeps you in the know of all the latest beer releases. Very cool collaborations with local breweries: they donate used whisky barrels to brewers for special releases! Shelf space is somewhat limited as wine and spirits take up a lot of the store. One of my favorite places to visit!

A mighty fine store this is! Located in a somewhat awkward space inside a strip mall-cum-office building, but right next to the drinking-and-eating action of Clayton (The Libertine, one of the best restaurants in the STL area, is two doors down from the store)

Lots of brews to choose from, including a bunch from Missouri (4 Hands, Charleville, Bat Creek and of course Boulevard)… Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad! Good selection of Evil Twin, at gentle prices, and lots of singles for mix-a-six. I also eyed some brands I can’t get in the East Coast like Hoppy Brewing and Twisted Pine. Among the European offerings, Barrel Aged Scotch Ale Silly caught my attention.

Prices are truly remarkable, for example Old Ruffian ’12 for $6.99 and Yeti for $7.79. These are beers I haven’t seen marked under ten dollars since at least 2008.

Don’t forget the cheese! They do have some really good cheeses here. Service is friendly and efficient, almost eager to please. I will come back next time I’m in St Louis.

This place is closest to my home, so I frequent the most. I like it, it gets the job done, staff is always very nice. I think their selection is good, I just wish Missouri was allowed to carry more beer from different states. An extra star for being the closest to the metrolink. Literally less than a 5 minute walk from Forsyth station.

This may be one of the better beer destinations in St. Louis, but I've never been bowled over. The shop is, not surprisingly, mostly aimed at the wine and cheese crowd. Beer occupies a large back room with a few refrigerators. Local breweries are pretty well represented, but the selection is not overwhelming as a whole - a lot of the room is occupied by cases of macro brews - and prices could definitely be a bit lower. Perhaps my expectations were a little inflated given the stellar reviews here on Beer Advocate.
