Coming from the country-side in Illinois, had to search far and wide to find a good selction of beers. Found it, finally, at Lukas!! Fantastic selection (growing all the time), with a wonderfully knowledgable staff (Hi Shelby!), who are always friendly and helpful. They even carry out your beer to your car!! This place is the bomb!! AWESOME!!
The store is huge. The selection of liquor is huge. There is no bigger one in St. Louis (store or selection, I think). The beer selection is also very large! Staff is as helpful as they can be. Very large "build a six" section. First time I walked through this place, I was there for something like 2 hours...slack-jawed the entire time.
Great superstore. Huge selection of beer and other alcohols and a few gems. Must go if in the area. Prices were better than other beer stores closer to St. Louis downtown area.

Largest beer selection I’ve seen anywhere, ever. They always have multiple items I can’t find anywhere else. Well organized, lots of helpful labels, constantly updated New Arrivals list, large clearance sections, wide variety of singles, diverse keg selection and easy arrangements, fair prices, helpful staff, clean, well-lit, etc.

Beer Blog to check for new beers is: http://lukasstl.blogspot.com ---With the improvements that have been made in the last 2 years, now one of the better beer stores in the St. Louis area. You will find many micros here that are not available on the east side of the river like New Belgium, Odell and Shiner. The Rogue bomber selection is the best in the area. Belgian, German, UK and import selection is excellent. Service is first rate and if you have a question, ask for Mike, their beer consultant. The easy way to get here from STL is to take west I-64/US40 to the Clarkson Rd exit, then south on Clarkson and you will avoid all the traffic on Manchester.
Stopped here on my most recent STL visit since I’ve heard that Corral Liquors across the river in IL has declined. This is a massive supermarket of alcohol and my liver delighted. For beer, they have a wide selection of quality imports, most available as singles. They also have a pretty decent selection of mostly regional US micros available to buy in singles. Their US selection isn’t quite as good as Corral’s at least used to be, but I still was able to stock up on about 2 cases of new singles. They also have a superb selection of wine and spirits. In a bit of a congested area, but worth the trip.
Very clean and well organized store - service was good in store as I was asked a few times if I needed help but was mostly left to browse on my own (which is how I like it) - they also helped me carry they 50ish beers I bought out to my car - the selection was outstanding and the mix a six (my favorite as I like to try as many different brews as possible without being stuck with a six pack) was outstanding and included approximately 60-80 beers with very few (if any) macros - the prices were average for the area - I just wish they were a little closer to home as I would visit more often if it weren’t a 45 minute drive from work on top of the 45 minute drive to work.
Always a friendly greeting when you walk through the door here. Large selection of beers and it keeps getting better. Plenty of imports and micros. There are a large number of Belgium beers to choose from. There are a good amount of single bottles from Germany, Russia, Poland, etc. Prices are pretty good. They also have mix and match six packs. It is mainly a wine store, but there are still quite a few there that know their beer and all of them are willing to help. Periodically they also offer beer classes to help introduce people to a particular line or style. Between this on the west side of St. Louis and Corral Liquor on the east side of St. Louis you can get a heck of a lot of different beers in pleasant environments.
What I love most about this place is that it is a three dimensional catalog of what’s available in St. Louis. Absolutely wonderful selection, but they will have it in three different sizes! Mixed sixer has a great selection (warm or cold). Beer tastings every Saturday. Matt does a great job juggling samples, questions and special orders, while the whole time convincing people who say they don;t like beer to try a peach lambic. Belgian and English selections are top notch and broad spectrum of domestics. Walked around with a sample, and shot the shiy with the customers and had a wonderful time.
