11/10/2011 Iíve heard such great things about Wine and Cheese Place, and their website is excellent, but I wasnít impressed by this particular location. Badly lit, dusty, very picked over. They may be fine for wine and cheese, but they had a MUCH smaller beer selection than I expected, and none of the beers Iíd seen on their site and travelled to the store to buy. Very few singles, no option to mix your own six pack, very little in the cooler. Shelf labels point to some sort of organization, but many of the rows were empty. Didnít really see anything I couldnít find elsewhere in town. Seemed overpriced. Disappointing. No one asked if I needed any help, but the girl behind the counter was nice enough when she explained the Clayton store has at least three times the selection. Guess Iíll try that one.
07/23/2012 Iím updating my review to reflect improvements. I moved across town and this store is now on my way to and from work. The new main male clerk (name?) is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He introduced me to the email list for special deals, invite-only events, etc. The shelves are cleaner, the beer fresher, better stocked, better organized, with far fewer empty rows compared to last year. The beer here is still a relatively small percentage of the floor space, but what they have is quite good. It even seems the prices are more in line with competitors now. Itís still nowhere near as cool as the Clayton location, but I suppose itís unrealistic to expect that. I wish they had their own clearance shelf, though, those are always fun to root through.

My parents live in STL, and Iím only an occasional visitor. I used to love the Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton, but havenít been back in a long time. My parents have moved within the STL area and this location of what I thought was the same company was much closer. They have a relatively OK selection of craft beer, but nothing spectacular, almost nothing cold, and virtually no singles. Not anywhere the selection I remember from Clayton. I didnít feel the need to buy anything ... very few things I couldnít get in Virginia. The staff seemed to care less.

This store is an odd compliment to the main one in Clayton. The Clayton store generally (but not always) has better selection, but every now and again I am able to pick something up here that is out at the other locations. Prices are a little high and beers are mostly sold in sixers.

One of the smaller stores, with less selection than the store in Clayton. Staff is very friendly and helpful, just not as big of a selection. If in the area, worth stopping by.

Was looking to find bottles of Jandrain-Jandrenouille VI Wheat and the Saison IV as I could not get them locally. This place had them in stock. Fast turnaround, and great customer service. Would order from again.
