I often go here at night around 8 or 9pm after getting off work. They have an excellent selection of beers. More than I even want to browse through in one stop. I usually just go to the build your own six pack area. They have a rotating selection and each beer is priced individually. I would estimate that they offer between 50 to 100 different beers to choose from for the mixer sixers at one time. Most of the beers in this area are fresh but I still check expirations just in case. Most of the time, there is only one employee at night and the person simply sits near the register and hurries to get you rung up and on your way. I have never had a problem with any of them and they are respectful of the customer's time, they just aren't the friendliest people around. The prices here are fairly reasonable and I love the option to make my own six pack sampler. It's worth a stop if you are in the area.

This place use to be the GO TO place for beer. It is now just a sad reflection of what it once was. Went there this last weekend to grab some different stuff for a small beer tasting amongst friends. The selection was sad. Just sad. The shelves were all practically empty, and we had to be extra careful with the bottles that were there as many that we found were many, many months past their expiration dates. That said, they did have a pretty decent quantity of Christmas themed brews...unfortunately, xmas was six months ago. Bottles were covered with dust, and it was just a real pain trying to find anything worth drinking. I heard from a friend that the new owners were having trouble paying the distributors. Seems like that would be an important thing for a liquor store to do. Kinda the point, isn't it? Beyond that, the A/C in the place must have been broke, because it was hot and stuffy. The refrigerators were also just slightly below room temperature. All in all, I have no plans of ever going back. Again, sad.

Oh how times have changed. The once mighty Corral in Granite, once my craft beer home...the place that introduced me to craft beer 10 years ago... the place that was once a destination for miles and STATES around, has now been reduced to an average craft beer store. New ownership took over a few months back, and they have shown absolutely no desire to improve their craft beer selection. This makes me, and many other east side beer drinkers sad. Until I see otherwise, I won't be wasting my time going back to see the same bottles, un-faced shelving and lack of desire. Hopefully, this will all change.

You get a view of Rust Belt USA on the drive in from I-70. Definitely not a place for ambiance. Nice selection of US and Euro craft beer. Best part is you can buy singles of any beer. I stocked up on Dogfish Head and Victory when I was there. No Three Floyds when I went however. Guy behind the counter was very helpful. Not sure I would make the trip on its own, unless you really wanted Dogfish Head and Victory. Most everything else is available on the Missouri side. We were going to the Cahokia Mounds, so we were in the area.

Corral seems to be the go to place in the St. Louis area for IL exclusive craft such as Three Floyds and a few others.

It seemed to be the best selection in the immediate area, but other stores in STL are competitive if not better. Beer selection was in the back, a couple aisles with endcap displays holding new releases and seasonals. The store showed it's age, from the sun faded Stag banner outside to the worn carpeting inside. Noticed Cantillon Gueuze, but no other traditional Lambics. The clerk said they try to order the full line of Cantillon, and their orders are never filled :( Still, you can get your sour fix here with other quality beers such as 1809 Berliner Weisse. The beer guy was also able to point out what had just came in, including fresh Dreadnaught & Broodoo (get some ;). I left with a sixer of the uber-sessionable Schlafly Pumpkin. They had a couple from Mikkeller, Schlafly Reserve line, but only 3 smokestacks from Boulevard (no limited ones). No Ballast Point or Green Flash either for some reason, which are all over central IL. The selection was pretty large, many imports, lots of full lines from your regular craft breweries, though smaller than Friar Tucks and other chain stores. This independent store had a few gems here and there, so it's still worth a stop.

as noted the best part about this place is that you can put any 12 ounce bottle into a mix six.

not an overall large selection but what's there is high quality.

the service was great. the guy was willing to talk shop. you could tell he knows the difference between those that are there to buy craft beer versus those that are there to buy a case of bud light.

selection wasn't very large but overall high quality. i suppose it's a difficult position to be a beer store on the border of the mississippi river.

value was reasonable.

Not sure why I have never headed up here..its about 20 miles from the house. I guess I didn't know about the build your own 6 pack! I was like a fricken kid in a candy store! Other than the Lunar Ale, that had a sell by date of 3-8-2008 ( its 2-14-2009 now), the beer seemed fresh.

The folks working there were just great, and, the selection was nice. There are times where I want to sample something, without buying a whole 6 pack, and times where, I 'd like to have just a couple.

I have found my new "go-to" store!! Why other local stores do not offer build you own 6er's, I don't know..

Visiting friends in STL, and they took me over the state line to Corral. This place is talked about often in the Midwest forums, and it lived up to everything I have heard. The biggest feature for me was the mix and match. Just grab a carrier and start pulling beers. There is nothing like that on the MO that I've ever seen. Just so much fun. Kid in a candy store for sure. I am defenitely coming back the next time in STL. I was able to get a huge variety of high end beers for a little over $50. Still plenty of stuff to go back for.

The employees were friendly and knew the line between helpful and in the away.

Wow, what a find - thanks to BeerFly! I wouldn't have thought this was such a gold mine from the outside appearance, but don't let that fool you. This place is huge with aisle after aisle of beer and multiple coolers. A big mix-a-six-pack selection; maybe 100 beers and 30-40 types at any one time. Turnover rate is awesome - I go about 4 times a year and there are always new selections to choose from. The only drawback is that sometimes the beer is starting to get a little old, but overall they're kept new. They have a back part of the store where they keep the hard to find Macro lager can selection. I had never seen Old Milwaukee's, Hamm's, Schaefer, Schlitz, and a few others, got a big kick out of this. The service is very hands-on, knowledgeable, eager, and friendly. During my last visit I was eagerly checking out the mix-a-six-pack selection and the owner informed me that the entire place is part of the mix-a-six-pack. You can browse the aisles and pluck a beer from anywhere to add to your cache! Overall, an amazing place and I look forward to going back soon!

Edit: July 2011 - Under new management. The selection has declined each of my last three visits. The only reason I stop there now is that they have some stuff not available in MO.

Finally made a visit to Corral Liquors. I've had beers from here before in trades. It is easy to find and does look like an usual place to have such great beer. The beer is in the back. I enjoyed the opportunity to make mixer-sixers with anything. I asked a worker how the system worked and she said I could pull from any craft six pack but "not domestics like Budweiser." At that point I laughed and said, "Don't worry I won't be taking any Bud." I built 3 mixers. Here's a list of some of the available breweries: Clipper City, Sierra Nevada, Wild Goose, Two Brothers, Millstream, Dogfish Head, Lagunitas, Tommyknocker, Avery, Anderson Valley and Victory. The imports were also impressive. Quite a few Belgians that I don't see in Missouri or Kansas. At this point I've had no quality issues with any of the beer. It's not easy to get to for me, but when the opportunity arises I will make a stop.

I love Corral, it's the only place I shop at for beer since I've moved to Illinois. When I first visited, I was kind of worried because the outside just screams dive. However, once you enter, you're surrounded by aisles of excellent wines, liquors, and of course beer. The beer is located in the back in a few aisles as well as in coolers all along the back walls.

Service is good, if the right people are working. Others don't really know much, but will help if they can. Quality can vary, I've had some very fresh beer, but also some outdated bottles that weren't selling.

The best part is mix your own sixers.

To give you an idea of some breweries you can get:
Goose island, schlafly, pyramid, left hand, great divide, sierra nevada, fort collins, lost coast, anderson valley, lagunitas, sam adams, two brothers, sea dog, clipper city, north coast, boulder, rogue, hitachino, rodenbach, cantillon, lindemans, chimay, delirium, monk's cafe, victory, flying dog, avery, Offalon, DFH, a few more I'm forgetting, plus a great import selection from England, Germany, Belgium, Asia, etc.

Edit: Recently I've been more disappointed. After making a suggestion I got some rude comments back. If you don't want suggestions, don't ask for them. Don't feel so comfortable with me because I'm a regular. I am still a customer and expect to be treated respectfully. I've now come to realize that Corral is good for Southern IL, but won't progress much further even when more choices are available. They are content to bring in an occassional new bottle or two, but won't go out of their way to do more.

I've heard about this place many times here on BA and finally got my chance to check it out on my way home from St. Louis. It's located right across the border with an exterior that makes you think you're in the old west. Yee haw baby!! Upon entering you get the standard liquor store vibe, except for this place is nice and big and everything is pretty well kept up with good lighting as well. Walk towards the back of the store and you'll find a wide array of craft beer ripe for the pickings.

The advantage here is that since it's right across the border you not only get the best of the St. Louis area, but you also get some of the best of IL as well! Bells, Founder's, Flying Dog, Schlafly, Clipper City, O'Fallon and many, many more. Lots of specialties and limited edition stuff is here...but it may be a little hard to find as everything seems to be spread apart. I was able to find both Schlafly barrel aged brews which was great. The Belgian selection is nice as well with lots of Cantillon and other random rarities. You really have to wander around this place multiple times to be sure you catch everything hiding on the shelves.

When I was there I had a hard time finding someone on the floor to help me out. It seemed like there was someone at the register, but not many other employees around. Being out of town I was gonna ask about a bathroom but never found anyone to ask until I already left. Aside from this...I was able to find everything I needed.

Overall, Corral Liquors rocked...and if I hadn't spent a crap load of money that weekend already, I would've bought a lot more. If this place is on your way during your travels, make sure you stop in. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Corral is my favorite beer shop in the St. Louis area without a doubt.

Service was fine with someone on hand to answer questions if needed.

The selection of beers is incredible with many a brand that can't be found in Missouri like DFH, Founders, and Three Floyd's. The stock is fresh and well-rotated.

One of my favorite things about Corral is the making your own sixer from any beer in the store. I have discovered so many great brews by walking out with three or four sixers of new stuff.

Prices are consistent with other shops in the area.

Sure, it's a bit more of a drive to get there but it's worth it.

The St. Louis metro's "other" beer retail destination (along with, and arguably second to Lukas in Ellisville, MO). I visited in May 2007, and was delighted.

Selection is spectacular, and given the Illinois location, substantially different from shops just across the river in Missouri. I found Three Floyd's, Founders, Avery, Anderson Valley, and a host of smaller craft breweries not distributed in Missouri. Of course the reverse also applies, so you can't hit just one. The Belgian selection seemed a little less than Lukas', but still remarkable - and the non-Belgian import roster was especially impressive.

The beer guy was not evident when I was there, just a cashier, so service wasn't so great for me. There were various holes in the selection - some empty shelf spaces for certain Avery and Founders selections, for example, and lots of to-me obscure breweries and beers - that I would have loved to ask about.

The next best thing about Corral after the selection is the absolutely enlightened singles policy. Literally any beer can be bought as a single - not even any markup, just priced evenly as a proportion of its pack price.

The downside is probably the location. Only 15 or so miles from St. Louis proper, but not especially easy to get to. The town seems to be on the upswing, but it's still a rough establishment in a pretty rough area.

If I were forced to go to one retailer in the St. Louis area, it would probably be Lukas, but I hope never to be forced - both of these places will get special trips from me every time I visit.

made sure to make a trip to Corral while visiting STL for Missouri Valley Tourament. Great that one can get such a great selection of not-in-Missouri (or Kansas) beers while only travelling minutes outside of MO. Pretty easy to find if you're not an idiot - which I guess I sort of am.

Seems a little strange that beers like Avery and Great Divide that are pretty widely available in Kansas but not in Missouri suddenly reappear in Illinois, but whatever. I found a few Avery beers that I haven't had/haven't had in a long time, so I was happy.

Founders was near at the top of my list for this trip, and for the most part Corral delivered. Wish I'd bought (a lot) more Red Rye back with me. Centenial IPA, Black Rye and Dirty Bastard were all winners too.
Didn't realize that Bear Republic and Lagunitas were available in Illinois, but I eagerly snapped up some Lagunitas IPA and the only two bombers I saw (sorry) of Hop Rod Rye.
Also of note was a nice selection of Cantillon.

Not finding any 3F was a disappointment, but with it I would have spent an obscene amount of money. Mildly disappointed not to find more than a couple bottles of Great Lakes too.

Can't say that I received any great personal service, but the guy at the checkstand was friendly, answered my questions to the best of his ability, and helped carry my beer out to my car.

Located just east of St. Louis in Illinois. While Granite City is so close to Missouri, the selection of the domestic craft brews is so different. Great Divide, Avery, Three Floyds, and Bear Republic are just some of the things available there and not in St. Louis. There are some dusty bottles so be on the lookout for outdates. I have been making the trip about once a month since I first went to Corral. While out of my way, it is definitely worth the trip to pick up some great brews not available near me.

I spent $163.39 at Corral Liquors on 8/28/06. I found the selection to be very good. Some out of date and dusty bottles but a great selection of Belgian beers and a decent selection of American micros. Staff asked if I needed assistance as I browsed.

However, I did have a unpleasant experience.

It took three boxes to load up my haul. The clerk and I loaded the bottles into the recycled boxes. Staff was eager to assist me to my car to load my purchase. The man who rolled the cart to about 15 feet from my backseat and stood with his back to me. I told him thanks and I could get it from here. He ignored me and brought the first box to me as I rearranged my backseat full of suitcases,etc. (I was on my way home from a roadtrip.) I loaded the first box and he returned to the cart. I again said I could get the remaining boxes and thanked him. I shifted some other things in the backseat and he remained over by the cart and we packed the backseat. I happily continued home with my haul.

When I returned home and unloaded my treasures I noted that I did not have two of the beers I thought I purchased. I was very excited to see and buy St. Bernardus Tripel and a Watou Tripel at Corral. These were unavailable in my area and I purchased two of each of these, however, I only got home with one of each. I checked my vehicle and luggage, no missing beers.

I then checked my itemized receipt to check if I had only paid for one of each. I did indeed pay for two. I called the next day and spoke to a manager "Kristy". I told her the situation and shared that I thought maybe the staff who had helped me had stolen the beers. She strongly denied that he could have stolen them. I did not argue with her but asked what they could do to rectify the situation. She said she would consult with the owner and get back with me.

Kristy did call back but focused on defending the guy I had suggested may have stolen the beer. I changed the direction of the conversation and asked if they could credit my account the $7.18 plus tax. She agreed and I gave her my credit card number again.

I never received my refund.

It's been nearly four years since my original review, so I figure it's way past due for an update...

Corral Liquors technically isn't in St. Louis proper, but it's generally accepted that the metro area extends well beyond the borders of the city and county. While it can't be included under the St. Louis section of BeerFly, because it resides in a different state, rest assured that as far as retail beer selection goes around here, Corral is the tops. And it's only a 10 minute drive from downtown.

Behind every great store is a passionate beer geek who keeps everything working smoothly, and Corral is no different. Joe Billhartz is the 'resident cork dork & beer geek', as his business so accurately proclaims. Being downstream from Chicago in the supply pipeline presents plenty of challenges, but Joe manages to bring in the newest beers consistently. He's got some special shelves for new beers in the front of the beer section of the store, and I swear there's a few new ones there every week or two. The winter holiday time is especially fun with all the new stuff he gets, but you can really hit your wallet hard if you're not careful. And when Joe is there, it's funny how what was supposed to be a quick 10 minute visit turns into a 45 minute long conversation.

I won't go through the full list of brands Joe brings in, as you can get many of the brewery names in other reviews here. However, the beer selection is deep and dense. East Coast, West Coast, Midwest, New England, Belgium, England, Scotland, France, Germany, etc. are all well represented. And for the record, yes, the clientele can be somewhat shady and it's not in the best of areas, but you'll forget about that the instant you see the beer section.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I hesitated about giving a full '5' on quality, as I do see a sixer outta date every now and again, but that's but a tiny detail.

Bottom line: the Best that St. Louis has to offer. An absolute must-see.

You drive down Nameoki road not knowing what youre in for and then you see the sign for corral liquors. Of course we are in AB country so you see all of the signs on the doors for Budweiser, Bud Light, Bud Ice, and Busch and you start to think that this isnt going to shape up to one of your finer beer outings. You walk through the doors and are greeted always by a smiling face which is always nice. Still kind of skeptical though you trudge your way to the beer section and have nothing less than a mild heart attack. The selection here can only be explained in one word, ridiculous. They have everything from allagash to cantillon and then some. They have four packs of Duvel for around 8 bucks, not to mention single 330 ml bottles for 2.00 a piece. Whatever you are looking for short of Dark Lord or Westvleteren, they will most likely have here. The service here isnt exactly beer advocate worthy, that is if Joe isnt there, but all the same they are very courteous and ready to help to their best efforts. The prices here as well are really reasonable, bought a bottle of Cantillon Vigneronne for around 13.00. Just a great beer stop for anyone near or around the saint louis area. A bit of a commute from Saint Louis County, but most certaily worth the drive. Definitely one of my weekly beer stops.

Update 9-30-06: Stopped in for a visit the other day and felt I need to update. The selection is unbelievable. Plenty of founders, victory, bear republic b.c., germans are well spoken for, lost coast, great divide and many more. Talked to Joe and he is getting Lagunitas in a matter of weeks, he also said that hes trying to get Russian River. Three Floyds is having problems with their distribution guy in chicago so no FFF's at corral. Awesome place to stop in the STL perimeter, definitely numero UNO on my list.

I was on a trip to st. loius from chicago and after reading rave reviews I decideded to make this a flagship stop. I walked to the back for their beer section and saw quite a few different brews. Sadly, it wasn't seeing anything I couldn't get anywhere else. The service was less than spectacular, I was given a "hey" by a kid who didn't look of drinking age. Their prices were decent, selection was OK and all the bottles seemed newer, but it isn't quite what people are making it out to be.

Well, drive past the steel mills and the falling- over houses and you eventually get to this 'suspicious' looking building with a giant cowboy hat out front. And a guy carrying a case of old milwaukee under his arm to his truck. And then you walk in and find more wonderful beers than you can imagine. Really- you will be here forever, because you simply cannot narrow down your choices. So many belgians.... tons of GREAT german lagers.... oh, my gosh... the imperial stouts aplenty.

The best selection I've seen so far in the St. Louis area. And every bottle has been spot- on; no bad bottles I've had.
Also, you can match any bottles into a pack- the prices are the same for individual or 6 packs... and the prices are good.

The service is good- the owner cares about the beer and is very happy when you do too. Great guy very interested in the geeks who are in awe of all the great beers.

Oh, and they have a good wine selection, if your'e into that sort of thing.

So recently I'm going to St Louis and BeerFly does it again!

20 others aren't wrong, this is the place in the St Louis area to find as many beers as you are going to find in this part of the midwest.

The Mapquest directions got me there (and then to my hotel on the other end of the St Louis metro) with no problems whatsoever. Can't miss the big ten gallon hat, but this is indeed a craft beer heaven. Doesn't look too bad for any other wine or spirits if that's your thing.

Plenty of great stuff from Schlafly, Rogue, DFH, 3 Floyds, Victory, and Avery just to get started. Most of the big names you'll find there except Stone and Alaskan. Belgians in all shapes and sizes (was that bottle of Duvel as tall as me?). Most is warm, but there is a decent selection in the coolers as well. That's no problem for me, this stuff is going back to KC.

Wasn't sure of building my own 6ers, but there was a big table full of all kinds of good stuff available for mixing at a buck n change per bottle.

With that, prices were very reasonable. World Wide Stout only $6.99 a bottle. Filled up two pretty big boxes for $94, and that included not only some bombers but one of those fancy new bottles of Rogue I2PA. I know, but I really want to try that beer and one bottle will be a nice they should go back to their regularly scheduled bottles but that's another post. Speaking of which, if you hurry you can get some of those old bottles of Rogue Impy Stout for only $2.50 each.

Service was friendly. They came to my buddy and I (who left with a 6er of Rolling Rock and a 16oz aluminum Bud bottle, I have MUCH work to do) and asked how we were doing a couple of times. I personally was savoring the selection as my buddy was confounded by the "Doghead Fish" labels.

The store is a regular building in a regular neighborhood. No suburban bliss, this is a refinery town. But you're fine driving through, even on a Friday night.

If you're going through St Louis, and you're from someplace where distribution is mediocre at best, go here even if it isn't your stopping place. Or just go, you still might find something new.

This is my new go-to liquor store. Thanks to all of the BA's that wrote reviews. Corral Liquors knocked my socks off with a massive selection of hard to find beers.

Traquair House Ale, Samichlaus, St. Bernardus Abbot 12 and Tripel, Thomas Hardy BW, Liefman's Goudenband, Duchusse de Bourgogne, etc.; I felt like I hit a home run to win the game driving away from Corral Liquors. Corral also boasts the best selection of domestic beers I've seen in the area, carrying products from many breweries that aren't available in Missouri. I would guess this is because it's not in MO, so A-B can't mess with the distribution; who knows? By far the best selection I've seen to date.

Not too hard to get to or find, you'll wonder when you get there about the cowboy look of the exterior; step in and be surprised.

Went last nite, still have an adrenalin rush today. Like all the other reviews, little bit hard to get too, even if you live on the east side of St. Louis in Illinois. BUT, the quest is worth it, the craft brew selection is staggering. Read and admired labels for 2 hours They also have a real good selection of wine (don’t drink much) and hard liquor – especially Scotch, which I like. Didn’t get to met Joe, hopefully on the next trip – but the gals working in there were friendly & helpful. One offered to carry a box of frostys to the truck for me (geez, do I look that old?).

Unfortunately, from the other site reviews, I went to the best craft store first – planning on a site seeing trip to Starr’s & Lukas markets in STL soon. Just to look... Maybe. Buying 2 or 3 bottles at most... Maybe.

1/21/06 update - still a good place to get your craft fix, but I would have to same that Lukas Supercenter in STL is now the King of Craft.

After last weekend, this place has over a hundred bucks of my money. That's right, between Corral and the Chocolate Bar, my Christmas bonus is gone (as a buddy of mine's mom put it, 'you can piss away your bonus twice this way'). nogoodreason suggested this place, and, while it was a bit hard to find, we made it there eventually. The area doesn't look like the best at first, but it's just a working class town. The look store reminded me of many I've seen in KS than have nothing but macroswill. It's a disguise, believe me. The beer selection was amazing (the wine selection was pretty big, too, but I've got no clue on wine).

Victory, DFH, 3Floyds, a number of Bells and Rogue I can't find around here... Tons of good beer, new things to experience, and I grabbed myself a small sliver of the liquid goodness contained there. Hell, even my buddy, who's picky as all hell, found him some sweet, fruity beers there. For anyone in the midwest who is deprived of much in the way of good beer, if you get to St. Louis, stop here. It's worth the extra half an hour or so.
