Visited after work on a Wednesday. Located just off the interstate, easy to locate in a brand new large shopping center. Very much a big box style liquor store. The beer is located on the back wall in coolers and on the left hand side on warm racks. Big selection, though nothing really jumped out as extraordinary. Mix a six is available in the warm section, $9.99 per six with a decent selection of local beers. Prices were solid, arrangement of beers was by brewery. No service requested or offered. There are certainly better beer stores in the St Louis area, though this is a good option on that side of St Louis.
70 = ★★½ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Meh, compared to other local large stores in the area, this one isnt very good. Lots of old "shelf turds" around so watch out for old stock. prices are a bit high compared to other places as well. Service didnt exist all times i have been to this location. Go to Randall’s instead.
This place has just about everything. The selection is outstanding. Nice looking and huge store. Prices are not outrageous. There is nobody there to help you with your selection, but I don’t always need that anyway. They came up huge for me when BCS came out last year. No line, just walk up and buy 1 case each of BCS, BCS coffee, and BCS barleywine.

This place has become my most frequented stop during most trips to St. Louis recently. It has a decent mix of micros and craft and every now and again you can find something exciting and rare, but don’t count on it. It is one of those liquor superstores that are popping up everywhere now, so pricing is standard and selection is corporatized... mostly...
I stopped by Friar Tuck on my way back to Kansas City from a weekend stay in St. Louis. Very nice selection of bombers, single bottles (mixer sixers), and international beers. I was excited to pick up a number of St Louis beers that don’t get distributed to Kansas City (Perennial, 2nd Shift, Six Row). The location was pretty convenient also, right off of I-64 as you’re leaving St. Louis. I will definitely stop back here in the future.
"We make it easy, if we can order it, we do" That’s how one of the workers described it to me. A large selection of liquor and very good selection of beer. It is an upscale supermarket for beer, but their prices are in line with other stores, so the value is good. Large selection of beers from which you can "make your own six pack." Alcohol/beer tastings on Saturday. They have more than a handful of different 5-liter micro-kegs in their *very* cold cooler.

Sort of a supermarket for booze. Nice place with 600 beers to choose from. A large selection of six packs from local, regional and national craft brewers are available. They have many imports including a good selection of beers from Belgium and quite a few from England. There have a section of beers to build your own 6-pack from. Nice if you want to try a beer without having to buy a whole six pack. In the back there is a large walk-in cooler of 6 packs, 12 packs, cases, even BMC offerings. There is even a section for home brewing items. Oh yeah, there is a large selection of wines and spirits, included a nice selection of single malts. Prices seem to be quite reasonable.
