The grocery store of beer. Two enormous beer aisles with a ton of import beer not found anywhere else in St. Louis. Mostly categorized by craft beer then by import country. Yes the prices are a bit high compared to Wine & Cheese but Friar Tuck had a better selection. Tons of Belgian and German beer. More Scottish beer than you can shake a stick at. Found some Norwegian beer and plenty of mead. Tons of liquor, if thatís your thing. Also has a cooler in the back with more selection. Prices varied between room temp and cold beer, which to me seems odd. I have to pay more for cold beer? Regardless, Iím basing this on selection, and from what Iíve seen this place has the most.

Very nice store with mostly wine and hard liquor. A full aisle of craft beer from MO, US and international brewers as well as a mix a 6 section. Good variety and easy to spot something new. Friendly staff. Prices are a bit high.

Been to this location a couple of times on various STL visits. This place opened up just about the time i left St Louis back in 2009. Pretty standard Friars, like the original stores they made in IL, this one has a huge selection located on the left side of the store. Prices are average to slightly high and the service is is just ok. Just be careful for old beers.

My parents just moved to a nearby neighborhood, so I think this will be my new go-to place when Iím in town. This is a cavernous, warehouse of an alcohol store. Wow, we drink a lot, donít we. Nice, full aisle of quality American craft and import beers, with a good selection of singles. Little bit pricey, maybe, but think thatís common around here.

Massive store that focuses mostly on wine and hard alcohol. That being said, there is one aisle, both sides, and a pretty decent sized freezer, dedicated to beer. Pretty large selection, as one might expect from a liquor superstore. Some pretty good finds from good breweries, such as Founderís, Stone, Green Flash, and many others. A solid selection of local brews like Schlafly, Urban Chestnut, Perennial, and 4 Hands. Kevin, the beer guy, will chat with you and let you know whatís coming in, but you have to seek him out. Rarer new releases are on counter as you first walk in, but itís first come first serve, so you have to stay on top of it and know when certain beers are supposed to arrive. They used to have a waiting list, but abolished that system, which kind of frustrating for people that actually work during the day. Overall, you standard beer superstore, but canít complain having it within 5 minutes of my house.

been here about 3 times in the past year. First off, before the beer. Large store, lots of space and alcohol. The port selection is horrid for such a store. Cognac selection is good but prices on high end items too high10% - 40% too high. Now BEER. Advantages, large selection, stock sits around longer so a chance to find beer sold out elsewhere. Disadvantages: stock sits around. Lots of old beer for sale. Fine if its a strong Belgian, less fine for an APA. Prices high on imports, a buck or 2 more than wine and cheese place. Saw a 750 import that was 50% higher than in Kansas. They have a discount rack, I usually grab something off that.
Bottom Line: might have some stuff sold out elsewhere, prices higher and old stock.

A better than average liquor store, especially for those not used to the distribution of Missouri. Plenty of big bottles from around and the world, but especially the Midwest and some of the many offerings from local St. Louis breweries. A bit pricey in general and their mix and match is not comprehensive.

I was looking for a few specific brews and they put them to the side for me until I could come by and pick them up, great customer service. It is a nice, big, clean and well-organized store. The staff is more than willing to help and give advice. I plan to make more trips when looking for certain brews.

I can pretty much copy and paste my rating of FT Fenton for the one in Crestwood: Friar Tuck doesnít have a location convenient to me (in the city of St. Louis) but this one is about 20 minutes away along the depressing stretch of Watson that used to be bustling with commerce. The store seemed pretty new, so itís big, bright, and clean. The staff helped me out by setting aside a couple bottles for me when I called ahead. The selection was pretty huge; a very long beer aisle rolls back into a back section with both aisle displays and a walk-in refrigerated area. Stock was deep for everything they had. The prices were just a touch higher than what I would have liked, but not bad. They had things in stock that I hadnít seen in the area yet, or at least not in a long time. I wondered how long certain things were on the shelves but that didnít matter for a couple rare impy stouts I found. Too bad there isnít one of these closer to me or Iíd visit more. It isnít quite worth driving past Randallís or Wine and Cheese for, unless they have something unusual the others sold out of.

Stopped in today and I couldnít help but be impressed. A great facility with parking that is more than ample and a big building with lots of room in the aisles. Their beer selection is amazing. Hundreds of beers many of which are in sixers or cases but plenty of larger bottles available as singles. A nice mix a six section for $9.99. Prices seemed a little high. I had no problem locating several beers that were new to me and it was nice to visit a new store just for that purpose. They also had a nice home brewers section. Despite the higher prices, I will be back for the selection.
