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...

Thorough selection of beer (and wine, bourbon and cheese) - lots of local craft beer available. They also have a great selection of imported beers if you're looking for that. Staff isn't the most helpful - unless you're one of the regulars they know. Still, a great place to go for good craft beer

This is easily the best beer, wine, whiskey, and gourmet food store in St. Louis. If you are looking for a well curated selection of beer, wine, scotch, bourbon, spirits, candy, cheese, dips, or other gourmet snacks and small foods, this is your destination. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable as well.

Specifically talking about beer, they have a tremendous selection of local craft, national craft, international, and macro brands. Basically, if the distro is available, they have it. They also have a rewards club, the BRC, which is free to join and how they allocate limited products.

Overall, this is pretty much the only beer and liquor store you need to know in St. Louis. Sure, other stores have quality and selection as well, but this store has something for everyone in the most literal sense possible.

The selection and the people make this the greatest bottle shop I know. Paul, who runs the shop, cares deeply about beer and his customers. He does his best to create fair systems to distribute allocated beers, and his barrel-aging partnership with our excellent local breweries is a genius innovation that has turned out some fantastic beers. Plus, the shelf selection alone should please anyone. And they host Friday afternoon tastings to boot! The only thing I'd realistically hope to see them add would be some music (why not?)--and ideally some kind of bottle share series in their nice tasting room. Really a great shop!
