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.
