Was excited to stop in here after reading some online reviews and checking out their huge online selection. I went to their online store and placed an order for the specific store listed , they showed this store having a lot of great beer in stock that they did not have at other locations. Well I show up and low and behold not one of the beers I ordered was there , I ask and they check stock on the computer and it shows zero. I ask them about the online store showing them having it and I drove to their store for that and the guy back at the desk behind the beer section shrugs his shoulders and says , " yeah that's the way the online stuff goes" Why even have an online section if you are not going to at least try and keep it up to date. One of the beers has been showing in stock at this store location for 2 weeks and they said they had not had it in stock for 2 months. A little pissed off to say the least since I drove out of my way to go to this place , oh well lesson learned , if you see a beer here online you want from this store you better call ahead and ask if they have it. I will not be stopping here ever again

This place is acceptable, in a pinch. They have an extensive selection of craft beers, and most of the standard releases are priced reasonably. It's just a warehouse looking place on the inside. Beware, however, that there have been a number of reports that the price of a beer marked on the shelf can often ring up differently at the register, so make sure to check your receipt before walking out the door. This place also has the reputation of marking up limited release selections significantly, over other area retailers. As far as customer service, you're not going to find anyone AT ALL in the store who has any idea about any of the beer in the store. So don't even bother asking anyone about anything. There is no help walking the aisles. Only the people at the cash register to ring you up... who may or may not argue with you about a refund if you point out a mistake on the receipt.
*edit - changing value to $$$$ after they put CBS on their website for $99.99 a bottle!

While stopping by this liquor store a total of 4 times now, I come here BC it is right off highway 44 and is easy to get to on the way to friend's houses downtown. I do only come here if I know for a fact what I am getting.
Upon walking in the store, there are multiple no weapons allowed signs everywhere. This isn't the first think I want to be thinking about.. Violence in a store. No worries about this, but then you have to deal with the walk all the way across the warehouse to get to the beer and watch out for weirdos. Okay, maybe this isn't a place I like coming into... Post review, I may never come back here.
I do appreciate that all of the beer is non-fridged (so you can cellar anything worth it.

This is basically a warehouse with bare bones ambience, but who cares. Its got a good selection at reasonable prices. I found several beers that I cannot get at home (Virginia), including a couple things I have had on my wants, at least one of which is a discontinued old ale that could easily age for a while longer. When I finially found it, I did not hold high hopes and the beer is on the last aisle after quite a bit of liquor and wine. The selections of wine and beer were quite extensive though. A great place to pick up beer if you want a good selection. Service was shoddy though. I was basically ignored by the people roaming the floor and tending to the shelves. The cashier was very friendly though.

Yah, had to check this Randalls, after shopping at their sister location in Fairview Heights, IL.
First note: Randalls is attached to the Johnny Brock warehouse, and is behind it. Take the first street, Allen, and circle around as you go under 44 highway on S. Jefferson.
Two: yeah, its more of a warehouse setting than the location in IL, which I would rate as a better setup (and has some cold beer). I donno if I would go to this STL place after dark.
Three: Still a good place to get beer (and wine/booze) with pretty much all the varieties available in MO; including the Bells and New Belgium.
Finally: I happened to go to Corral over in Granite City after my visit, Corral is cheaper (5-10%)

My go-to place in StL.
They have a great VIP program and a Waiting List that gives you a chance to grab rare and limited release beers.
Overall good everyday selection.
Convenient location for me which is why I like it.
Prices are on par with other stores in the area.

Just moved to St. Louis so i I used BA to find a good beer stroe close to my apt. Randall's turned out to be great. Its a big warehouse like place with a huge wine a liquor section which i browsed for a while.
The beer section is moderate in size but in my opinion made up for it in selection. There were a lot of domestic craft brews I had never seen especially form places in MO.
Service was rated 3 because at no point was i offered assistance. Although i usually don't like to be bothered.
They have a good selection compared to what I'm used to (originally form Puerto Rico, where Macros rule). Prices seemed fine to me.
I came away with bombers of SN HArvest Ale, a La Fin Du Monde, Hebrew Rye IPA and a Great Divde Belgian style wit.
I look forward to coming back later this week.

My favorite place to get beer, just wish it was closer. The best way to describe it is the Sam's of liquor stores. In a warehouse right off of the highway in south stl, huge wine, beer and liquor sections. I've also bought disposable flasks here as well.

Randall's is located in a big old warehouse and has an impressive selection of American Craft and imported beers. There are no cold beers that I could find, but there were racks and racks of six packs and bombers. Mostly six packs though. American micros were grouped by brewer, while the imports were grouped by country. This place has most everything you would expect to find at a very large distributor, and a few things that I thought were unique, particularly among the American micros. Prices were as cheap as some of the least expensive places I've been to, and I would imagine that they probably have the best prices in the St. Louis area. Definitely a place to stock up at if you're in the area.

Set up in a large warehouse style building. Open, with concrete floors, etc. Kind of like a miniature costco of booze. Beer aisle is down and to the right. Solid selection of stuff from the StL area in addition to a couple of shelves worth of imports and then a fair amount of domestic craft. Store employees I interacted with were friendly. In the ~45 minutes I was there I was asked twice if I needed help finding anything and was almost offered a job (tongue in cheek) a third time. Haven't been to any other liquor stores in the area, so I can't comment on comparative prices, but pretty similar to what I saw at the grocery store.
Solid, but nothing spectacular. As much as I dislike bombers (for all the reasons people have mentioned on this site and elsewhere), the fact that there are so many tantalizing brews that are only available in bomber format left me wishing they had a slightly larger availability off 220z bottles. Not bad, just not overly extensive. Also something I missed from where I used to live was the option for mix/match six packs
