This store has a pretty good selection of local, domestic and imported beers. The beers range in styles and seem to be relatively fresh. I doubt they are the most well rotated, but the beer isn't dusty either. Overall their quality was good and the selection was very good. It also has a pretty good wine selection and a great liquor selection.

The service and value are where this place looses some marks. The owners/workers rarely is ever come out from behind the counter and do not actively engage conversation about what you selected. I have grown accustom to beer talk when I go to a beer store. Here this is lacking. Maybe its the language/culture barrier or maybe I am just seeking too much. Either way this area could use the most work.

Price wise this store seems a little steep, but nothing to deter me from coming back frequently when I am in St. Louis.
