Part of the trick is finding this place. It sits behind another building and the signage isn't clear. Once you have found it though you are in for a treat. This place is a warehouse with a huge selection of wine, spirits, and of course, craft beer.

All the major players in the craft industry that distribute in Missouri are represented. The selection is good and I find on most things they have the best price, but that is not always true. They also have a decent selection of European beers. While finding knowledgeable staff, at least when it comes to beer, can be hit or miss, If you are on this site you probably do need a lot of assistance. If you do not see it, they do not have. I also like the way everything is shelved. I find it easy to browse.

They also have a small selection of home brewing supplies.

This place is in a sketchy part of the city with an occasionally sketchy crowd. Huge warehouse with lots of great distro beers and lots of locals that I was looking for. Will always stop in to see what is available.

This is probably the largest and is the most centrally located Randall's, but only middle of the road for me. Selection is huge although from a quality side watch out; there is a good amount of overage beer here and they only occasionally catch it and mark it down. My other issue with their selection is the VIP membership for limited release. They hold a lot of beer back for VIP only to put it on the floor weeks later with no communication if you were on the VIP wait list. Always ask for what you want, but don't be surprised if you get a dirty look.

The vibe of the store is a little odd. It is in an old warehouse so there is a ton of space and selection across all types of alcohol. It is also located near downtown, so the selection and crowd in the store gets a little rough at times, but their security and customer service helping people is always good.

Overall, I shop here regularly and still hold out hope that one day the VIP card will actually get me contacted for something limited.

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.

Service is what keeps this place low rated.
