I just had to make a run, after seeing the latest reviews of the place. And yes, this is a good store indeed. Much bigger than I imagined, but it is a *newer* store in the middle of the small shopping center.

Yep, 3 large isles of brews – many more imports than you would imagine. I bet they stock a great deal more Belgium/German brews now versus the earlier reviews. Full line of Unibroue, also. Additionally, they carry many sizes of certain brews – 12oz singles, 4/6 packs, and a pretty good line of bombers, many caged. (Why does the 750ml bomber cost much more per ounce than a 4 pack of 12oz??) (Ie bomber - $7, 4 pack $8.50)

They did ask if I needed any help, which I refused. I looked for an hour, still did not have enough time to take it all in. All selection very clean - no dust. OH !! BA reviews/ratings everywhere!! (At least for the better brews).

So, I now have a place on the far west side, to go with my east side favorite of Corral Liquors.

1/21/06 update - Yep, I now say this location is the King of Craft in STL, best place to shop for your frostys - numero uno!

Staff were very helpful with a search for the beers I was after. Well organized by brewer so locating beers was easy. The selection was very good. Store is clean and also had an abundance of spirits and wine

New location. Store just moved a mile east on Manchester from old Location. More parking here. Stoplight, easier access... at least for me. Old store was huge, this one seemed the same or bigger. They've always had a huge wine area as well as liquor. I go for the beer. Huge section in back of store is beer. Arranged by region/state, and then additional aisles by country. Full aisle of single bottles. Another area with plenty of macro brews. Never had a problem locating anything that isn't to rare, and always something new to try. Usually get some great deals when the seasonal stuff turns over, and often well before their freshness dates. Fridge section along back wall, and new tasting area that is basically a small bar. Plenty of staff around seem knowledgeable. They leave you alone unless you ask.

This is my new candy store on the way home from work.

I must admit I have been prone to being stoked about not so outstanding beer selections (I'm form Oklahoma) but this store seemed to have a good selection of beer from some of the best in the business, plus some of the more rare/limited offerings from such heralded breweries as Nebraska and Goose Island.

The place was clean and well organized, and the prices were good overall, even great in some instances. There was a large refrigerated section in the very back that had a wide selection to choose from for those who want an array of cold brews for immediate drinking (must be nice).

There was also a grand selection of glassware which nearly spanned an entire section of shelving from top to bottom. Sometimes I get just as much pleasure out of collecting and pairing glassware with my brews as much as I do drinking the brews themselves, so needless to say, this was quite a treat.

Lukas Liquors packs a lot of beer in not a lot of space. I was really impressed by the customer service, which included curbside delivery. If you find yourself traveling I-44 through St. Louis I would recommend you take the short jaunt to Lukas and grab yourself some goodies.

If your shopping for wine this place is A+.
I wish the beer section of Lukas was bigger. Its jammed into one corner of the store but the selection is still decent.
The greatest selection is in the single bottle refrigerated area.
A huge selection of chilled bottled beer from all over the world can be found here. And you can build your own six pack from these selections. I'd be great if the room temp beer of six packs and cases were this diverse.
Overall, it's probably one of the best places in STL county to buy beer.

I've been a Lukas customer for several years now, but realized I hadn't yet reviewed them.

The beer section stretches from the back, right corner of the store, follows a long row of cooler doors along the back of the store, and ends with a large macro section.

The craft/import section includes:
-- A long ~25ft wall shelving unit w/ 5 levels of shelves, which holds single bottles ranging from 8.5oz - 750ml+. When facing the wall, the left 3/4 hold import bottles, and the right 1/4 holds craft bombers/750ml bottles.
--A small island of shelves that hold sought-after trade brews like FW Abacus, Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus, Nebraska Black Betty, and Saison-Brett.
--An aisle of mix-a-six craft & import brews.
--3+ aisles of 6pks, 12pks, variety pks.
--~10 glass-door coolers with cold craft & import single bottle & multi-pack selections
--1/2 BBL & 1/6 BBL sales for those of us that have kegerators.

In addition to the selection, the service at this store is fantastic. By far, the best bottle shop in the STL area!

Lukas is luckily 5 minutes from my home. You can find all year round and seasonals from breweries such as Bells, Founders, Goose Island, Schlafly, Stone (just came to MO), etc.. To give you an idea, Lukas received 8ish cases of the most recent HopSlam. Some of the highlights I've picked up here over the past year: GI Bourbon County Vanilla and Rare, Bells Hopslam, Founders KBS.
While it is 'way out west' of downtown, there is quick turnover so very little old product sits on the shelf. A Mix-a-6 is also available and even pretty limited things are offered with it, albeit lasting shortly!

Wonderful Store for both Wine and Beer. In the beer section, there are a great amount of Krieks, Belgians, and many of my favorites (IPA, Ales, Micro-Brews, etc.). You can "Mix-A-Six" of any beers from quite a good selection of both chilled and room temperature beers. I would say this place is more for wine drinkers but they do a good job accommodating both types of drinkers. There is also someone always asking if I need help or would like some new suggestions. Great place if living in Wildwood/Chesterfield area!

First of all, this place is LARGE. However, you'll quickly find that the beer section takes up a relatively small corner of the store overall. Very much a place for wine. However, the beer selection is quite diverse and overall pretty good. Mixed six packs allowed, which is always cool for those looking to try something different. Most of the usual suspects are available with a few surprises and some noticeable absences (Stone?). Nice glassware selection. If you've been to some of the mega party supplies and out for rarities, you'll be disapointed but if you're looking for a quality selection, this place isn't too shabby.
