Typical Trader Joe’s vibe: affordable eclectic/health-food/foodie-movement grocery store. Surprisingly wide beer selection, mostly the store brands which are actually brewed by Gordon Biersch, Goose Island, and a few other decent domestic and international microbreweries, plus a good sampling of other quality brews. I always look forward to their annual Trader Joe’s Vintage Ale which is a unique corked Belgian-style brewed by Unibroue (but always a couple bucks cheaper than any regular Unibroue bottles.) I wouldn’t say the staff is particularly knowledgeable about beer, but they’re very helpful with what they’ve got.

Decent place to get cheap beers, but not great selection. Cheap wines, the beer selection is mediocre.

After visiting Whole Foods, we made the trek across the parking lot to Trader Joe’s. Good selection of Josephbrau beers. A few other beers that are not found in the grocery stores were available, but otherwise they had a decent selection. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Trader Joe’s is in the always trafficky, always crowded Brentwood Promenade area. It looks and feels just like any other Trader Joe’s on the inside, which is not a bad thing. The beer selection is mostly ’house’ labels like Mission Street, JosephsBrau, and the like. They also had a handfull of Euros and a few American crafts, but not that many. The beer section seems mostly to be a vehicle to sell their own stuff. I’ll be back when I’m looking for some more Mission Street, but otherwise, Whole Foods nearby has a better selection overall and this place is probably in the database mostly for people in the immediate area looking for stuff.

Grocery store that is very clean - service was not applicable as I didn’t need any - they have several different brews I haven’t seen elsewhere including Black Toad from Goose Island and the Mission Street line brewed by Firestone Walker - the prices are excellent for craft beer as most of the six packs are only $6 - surprisingly good store for beer buying and I will visit it again next time I go to St. Louis.

Nice selection for a grocery store. Yummy and cheap snacks to go along with the decent beer selection.

This is a grocery store that has a nice little craft beer area. There were some interesting labels that I hadn’t seen elsewhere and you can freely mix and match 6 packs. That is a BIG plus for any store. Their variety is probably 50 to 75 offerings. The staff was very friendly but aren’t beer people. This is one I will drop in on again, especially with its proximity to Whole Foods. Prices were reasonable.

Your typical Trader Joe’s. Fairly good selection for the area. Prices reasonable but high in the beer section. Try the whole foods market nearby for a better selection.

This is a servicable place to find a couple of beers, but not your best option. Generally it is a zoo in here and the selection is modest, but they do have a few oddities as well as the Trader Joe’s brews that are only sold here (to my knowledge.) One of these is brewed by Unibroue and I’m still waiting for the right occasion to crack it open. Selection is better than your local supermarket, but won’t blow your hair back or anything. Pricing is pretty darn good. Service... well... the guy at the cash register told me the Winter Ale (Unibroue product I mentioned earlier) was good... I could have guessed as much when I looked at the back of the label to see who bottled it. There is an effort, but they don’t have their own beer geek that I’ve found.

This is a well kept store that has a fair selection of beers. While most of the store has excellent prices on above average items, the beer seems to be the exception to the store. For the imports and micros they stock the prices are generally a little higher than the local bottle shops. Their store brands are reasonably priced, but you really have to watch which ones you get. The few brewed by Goose Island are very good for the money, but the others are very hit and miss. The store is highly recommended as a grocery store. I generally go there for groceries and see if there are any new or interesting beers. While they do not advertise it you can mix and match six packs. The price per bottle is a sixth of the price of a six pack - there is no raising the price for mixing.
