Downtown Clayton location. Open and bright store with what looked to be a solid assortment of boozes and cheeses. The beer selection was quite good with new stuff for me.. and they had a case of La Folie with my name on it. Cool place.

Place rating #108. Stopped by actually to buy a bottle of wine that they ordered for me. Im not sure why but it was a bit difficult for me to find comming in from Forest Parkway from the East. But alas I found it. You have to pay to park in the lot but if you buy something they validate. Not sure if you dont. Mostly a wine store but they do have a sizable selection of beer towards the back. Lots and lots of belgian beer and a solid selection of the usual locally found American beers. Really nothing too seasonal or unusual. But this place does the trick when looking for something you may not have had. It will be interesting to see what they get in the way of the seasonal Bells products that will be comming out soon.

AMBIANCE: Located in downtown Clayton. Lots of light shining through the big windows, which is a bit of a concern for the wine located nearby (the beer is a back room). The cheese selection is small, but solid. Some gourmet food offerings as well. SERVICE: Helpful and knowledgeable SELECTION: All of the Schalfly line, solid selection of American micros (Bells, Arcadia, Ommegang, Rogue, New Belgium, others) at good prices. Great selection of Belgians, with a good mix of lambics to boot. FOOD:Mostly cheese and curied meats, with some Stonewall Kitchen like products. OVERALL: Great store. Maybe not quite the selection of Starr’s Market, but a much better wine and hard alcohol selection.

As the name suggests, the primary focus of the store is wine and cheese. Beer probably comes in fifth after spirits and gourmet food, but they still manage an interesting and apparently well-kept selection.
Small but well thought-out selection of Belgians, pleny of interesting selections from the UK, a decent selection of Germans, and a strangely large selection of beers from the former Soviet states. The U.S. Micro selection remains pathetic.
The majority of the beers are kept on warm shelving, but in the darkest corner of the gourmet food room. They now have a small cooler that keeps a few of their better sellers cool, but it’s shared with popular wines as well. Prices are a bit erratic, with some quite reasonable (Cantillon 750mls for about $11) and others stangely high. They do a decent job of rotating the selections with the seasons, and moving seasonals out rather than leaving them to rot.
All of the beers I’ve purchased over the years have not shown signs of poor storage. I did notice a few dusty bottles, but there was also evidence that the employees were weeding through the shelves and removing any old beer. Definitely a good sign.
All in all, it’s probably not worth a special trip, but it is definitely my beer store of choice in the Clayton area.

Feb 2006: Went with my mom to her favorite wine store in the Clayton area of STL and was excited to discover a gem of a beer nook here, too. Tucked in a nice low-lit corner, this store carries a very impressive selection of quality beers. Well selected (if fairly widely avaiable) US micros start the section off, but there is an additional broad area of hard to find and highest quality imports here, too ... from the best Belgians and Britons, to more obscure European and other foreign selections. They also had out a table of wine and beers for tasting (along with a loaf of bread) ... the day I visited, they had 4 different Sleeman bottles for sampling. Definitely worth a visit to this hidden gem.
