My parents just moved to a nearby neighborhood, so I think this will be my new go-to place when I’m in town. This is a cavernous, warehouse of an alcohol store. Wow, we drink a lot, don’t we. Nice, full aisle of quality American craft and import beers, with a good selection of singles. Little bit pricey, maybe, but think that’s common around here.
Resembles a Total Wine store in size and stock. There’s a lot of beer. There was a sizable mix six section. Good store for the area. If you are coming from long distance, try Wine & Cheese Place first. Did get a Griesedieck, which was the first one I’ve seen.
I can pretty much copy and paste my rating of FT Fenton for the one in Crestwood: Friar Tuck doesn’t have a location convenient to me (in the city of St. Louis) but this one is about 20 minutes away along the depressing stretch of Watson that used to be bustling with commerce. The store seemed pretty new, so it’s big, bright, and clean. The staff helped me out by setting aside a couple bottles for me when I called ahead. The selection was pretty huge; a very long beer aisle rolls back into a back section with both aisle displays and a walk-in refrigerated area. Stock was deep for everything they had. The prices were just a touch higher than what I would have liked, but not bad. They had things in stock that I hadn’t seen in the area yet, or at least not in a long time. I wondered how long certain things were on the shelves but that didn’t matter for a couple rare impy stouts I found. Too bad there isn’t one of these closer to me or I’d visit more. It isn’t quite worth driving past Randall’s or Wine and Cheese for, unless they have something unusual the others sold out of.
Been to this location a couple of times on various STL visits. This place opened up just about the time i left St Louis back in 2009. Pretty standard Friars, like the original stores they made in IL, this one has a huge selection located on the left side of the store. Prices are average to slightly high and the service is is just ok. Just be careful for old beers.
A better than average liquor store, especially for those not used to the distribution of Missouri. Plenty of big bottles from around and the world, but especially the Midwest and some of the many offerings from local St. Louis breweries. A bit pricey in general and their mix and match is not comprehensive.
I was looking for a few specific brews and they put them to the side for me until I could come by and pick them up, great customer service. It is a nice, big, clean and well-organized store. The staff is more than willing to help and give advice. I plan to make more trips when looking for certain brews.
been here about 3 times in the past year. First off, before the beer. Large store, lots of space and alcohol. The port selection is horrid for such a store. Cognac selection is good but prices on high end items too high10% - 40% too high. Now BEER. Advantages, large selection, stock sits around longer so a chance to find beer sold out elsewhere. Disadvantages: stock sits around. Lots of old beer for sale. Fine if its a strong Belgian, less fine for an APA. Prices high on imports, a buck or 2 more than wine and cheese place. Saw a 750 import that was 50% higher than in Kansas. They have a discount rack, I usually grab something off that. Bottom Line: might have some stuff sold out elsewhere, prices higher and old stock.
Decent beer selection. Although the 6-pack mix section had a lot of macros, I was able to find some good stuff that I haven’t tried as well. Local things like Schlafly and O’Fallon were all available here. Prices were pretty much what you’d expect. The main reason I visited was for some homebrew supplies, but I walked out with a few six packs as well. Homebrew section is pretty limited. No liquid yeast or a lot of the stuff you’d expect. (But I’m sure the turnover is not that great.) Still a fine store to visit.
Stopped in today and I couldn’t help but be impressed. A great facility with parking that is more than ample and a big building with lots of room in the aisles. Their beer selection is amazing. Hundreds of beers many of which are in sixers or cases but plenty of larger bottles available as singles. A nice mix a six section for $9.99. Prices seemed a little high. I had no problem locating several beers that were new to me and it was nice to visit a new store just for that purpose. They also had a nice home brewers section. Despite the higher prices, I will be back for the selection.
