The place centers on wine, but has a good beer selection as well. A cooled mix-a-six-pack section of 30-40 beers. Also, a large cooler section of mostly domestic beers, but a few unique imports. The store is very clean and the service is very friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to help. The prices are a little high but not exorbitant. I haven't ever had a problem in quality with any of their beers. Easy to spot from Olive Blvd. and parking is available right in front. Turnover rate isn't as high some other places, probably because they focus on wine, but overall a good store.

I found this store by mistake but I was glad that I did. It is a very nice store. It is clean and the staff was friendly. Someone asked me if I needed any help as soon as entered the door. I watched two associates help this lady and her son. This lady and her kid were two of the snobbiest people I had ever seen. The kid was total brat that kept trying to trouble shoot one of the associates on wine but I never saw the gentleman change his disposition. They have a great selection and as far as beer was concerned it was all refrigerated. They had one of the better selections I had seen in Missouri it just wasn't huge quantities of it. There were a lot of imports and craft brews. The guy that rang me up said that they have beer tastings every once in a while with people from the industry at the store. The prices weren't bad I picked up a bottle of Unibroue 17 for $7.99 but I did see a few beers that I saw that were a little overpriced.
