I just enjoyed my first visit to the Wine and Cheese Place. My first thought was how could I have never come here before. My wife ventured into the massive wine selection while the kids enjoyed checking out the smelly cheeses. I of course, headed straight to the beer.

The beer area was in the back of the shop and had an incredible selection of craft beers, Belgians, and other Europeans, both warm and cold. As mentioned in another post, they probably have every Belgian available in Missouri. I went to pick up the Bell's 8000 and the Sam Adams Imperial Pilsner. They had both. They even had the Sam's Imp on their tasting table.

Prices seemed competitive with other shops and their location is a plus for me. I'll definitely be back!

The staff were willing to answer questions but were not very forthcoming with information. The selection was good but it is difficult to find specific beers.

I love this place! I visit this store at least once a week. They have everything you could possibly ever want in beer, wine, and liquor along with all the gourmet foods they stock. If there is an off chance they don't have what you're looking for they will go out of there way to find it for you. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and will help in any way they can. If you're in St. Louis and looking for a favorite beer, wine, bourbon, scotch or you would just like a nice brie and some prosciutto stop by TWCP.

Thorough selection of beer (and wine, bourbon and cheese) - lots of local craft beer available. They also have a great selection of imported beers if you're looking for that. Staff isn't the most helpful - unless you're one of the regulars they know. Still, a great place to go for good craft beer

This is easily the best beer, wine, whiskey, and gourmet food store in St. Louis. If you are looking for a well curated selection of beer, wine, scotch, bourbon, spirits, candy, cheese, dips, or other gourmet snacks and small foods, this is your destination. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable as well.

Specifically talking about beer, they have a tremendous selection of local craft, national craft, international, and macro brands. Basically, if the distro is available, they have it. They also have a rewards club, the BRC, which is free to join and how they allocate limited products.

Overall, this is pretty much the only beer and liquor store you need to know in St. Louis. Sure, other stores have quality and selection as well, but this store has something for everyone in the most literal sense possible.

The selection and the people make this the greatest bottle shop I know. Paul, who runs the shop, cares deeply about beer and his customers. He does his best to create fair systems to distribute allocated beers, and his barrel-aging partnership with our excellent local breweries is a genius innovation that has turned out some fantastic beers. Plus, the shelf selection alone should please anyone. And they host Friday afternoon tastings to boot! The only thing I'd realistically hope to see them add would be some music (why not?)--and ideally some kind of bottle share series in their nice tasting room. Really a great shop!
