Why on earth is this listed here? This is one of the last places for beer I'd go in that mega Brentwood shopping complex, let alone in the St. Louis region. It's basically a chain like Pier 1 Imports. I think there are some random foreign beers scattered around but it's mostly crap you can find anywhere and there's no way of knowing how long it's been sitting around in this place. It's hard to even find any beer because the store is so big and disorganized. World Market is mostly furniture and the like, and has no business being listed in here.

Been in a few times. It is nice to have a beer seletion at a place, so while the wife is shopping for... whatever... you can go over and grab few brews. They have a nice selection of domestic and some good European beers. You can also grab a twelve pack of random beers from around the US or around the world. There is a selection of beers to create your own mixed six pack.

The service is not something that you would get at a liquor store, so I don't know that they would be able to address "beer" questions.

This is not my first choice for beer shopping but it provides a nice option while my wife shops for other stuff in World Market. The carry a fairly standard collection of craft brews and imports. Some Bell's, Anchor, Schlafly, Abita, Pete's, Boulevard, Flying Dog and Sierra Nevada to name a few of the American brews. Imports range from Beck's to Warsteiner and some good Belgians, like Chimay. Occasionally, you can find some very inexpensive bargains. I once found 22oz bombers of Coney Island lager for $2.49. Overall, their beers are very affordable. There is no service nor any need for it. That being said it is always well displayed and well marked. Again, not a prime location but works in a pinch while shopping in the area and has occaisonal bargains.

I know it is going to sound kind of weird but I am always a fan of World Market. They always have a good selection of beers and this one is no different. They support the craft brew scene and always have a good selection of imports as well and this location is no different. They do Mixer Sixers at a reasonable price and the selection is constantly rotating. They usually carry glass wear too. Where else can you get furniture, food and variety of beer in one place. This location is also cool because it is next to a Trader Joes with a good selection of beers.

World market is most definitely a place to go if looking for a moderately priced to high end bottle of wine or champagne, also the food selection is great, besides the lack of meat and produce, but thats kind of expected because im sure that they dont do enough business to be able to make money on either of those perishable items. beer selection is definitely nothing special, you got your regular imports like warsteiner and heineken, then you have your others. they only have beers that arent a risk to carry, such as unibroue, lindemans, chimay, and new belgium products. all of which are great but i would be wary of heat and light damage because the rate at which they sell this stuff tells me that these bottles spend a lot of time in the open on the shelves. they do have a few packages that they offer that i did like though, such as their winter selection which has a duvel and about 11 other great beers that most would definitely enjoy. A lot of foreign home wares like rugs and kitchen odds and ends. A really great and cool store with a not so great beer selection, i would say skip this one if youre not looking for things for your home or kitchen, and instead head over to trader joes or whole foods.
