I've visited Randall's on numerous occasions, and am never let down.
The inside of the store has a warehouse look to it (complete w/ the concrete floor). Hang a right after walking through the door, and head back until the large, U-shaped beer section catches your eye.
From the right side of the U are limited release singles, Belgians, Germans, Russian/Mexican/Japanese/Chinese/, UK, then the complete left side of the U being domestic craft brews.
On my visit, I was pleased to find several Rasputin IV, which I only found at one other place in town that weekend. You're certain to find at least a couple brews that will surprise you. One hint-- keep your eyes up above the top shelf. That's where Randall's keeps their stock overflow, and you'll sometimes find items up there when the shelf below has been picked over.
My only complaint--the staff can be non-existent or simply uncooperative. If you know what you're looking for, though, this is a place to check out.

Came here after lunch at Mattingly's.
This is right of I-44 at Jefferson and is visible from the highway.
The selection was good size. All your major St. Louis options were represented. Schlafly, Founders, Avery, Sierra Nevada, Odell, Lagunitas, Anchor and a good selection of German and Belgian selections.
The service was good but not overbearing. I had one worker ask me if I needed help.
Overall, this is a nice place if you are in the area. I think the selection was still smaller than Friar Tuck and Lukas but still a good store.

Randalls at the intersection of I-44 and Jefferson used to be my home bottle shop as I lived right down the road.
The warehouse that Randalls is housed in is very large and spacious. The aisles are very wide and the store is quite spacious. 90% of the store is Liquor and Wine but the remaining 10% that is beer is a great selection at that. Beer is fairly priced but more expensive that Wine and Cheese Place. Service has also been very friendly and fairly knowledgeable.
My two gripes about Randalls
1) None of the six packs are broken down and there is no mix and match option. I have seen several beers I would love to pick up but just dont want all six.
2) No coolers inside so no beer is cold and ready. Many of times I am heading out to a BBQ and want to pick something up on the way which leaves Randall's out of the equation being nothing is cold.

Randall’s is just off of Jefferson and I-44, part of the same building that houses Johnnie Brock’s Dungeon. Most aisles in the store are really wide and shelves go way up to the high warehouse ceiling. Most are also booze and wine, but the beer section is a nice size and has a good selection. My only gripes are that many of the smaller bottles are not broken down- I buy a lot more bottles when I don’t have to get six-packs just to try something new- and that the inventory didn’t completely match what the website said. One thing I came in for that was supposedly in stock was gone when I was there. The staff is cool. The shelves aren’t as organized as I like, or just organized in a weird way, but that makes for some fun browsing. Picked up some great stuff, like Odell Woodcut 3 and 4, some RJ Rockers for a SC tick, and various other bottles. I come here quite a bit. Prices are higher than TWCP but in line with most of the area, and lower than Friar Tuck.

Part of the trick is finding this place. It sits behind another building and the signage isn't clear. Once you have found it though you are in for a treat. This place is a warehouse with a huge selection of wine, spirits, and of course, craft beer.
All the major players in the craft industry that distribute in Missouri are represented. The selection is good and I find on most things they have the best price, but that is not always true. They also have a decent selection of European beers. While finding knowledgeable staff, at least when it comes to beer, can be hit or miss, If you are on this site you probably do need a lot of assistance. If you do not see it, they do not have. I also like the way everything is shelved. I find it easy to browse.
They also have a small selection of home brewing supplies.

If you are looking for a hard to find product whether it be wine, liqour, or beer, Randall's is the place to go. They are stocked to the ceiling with products and offer great prices. Wine and liquor are extremely cheap while beer is only a little below average. I sometimes go without any idea of what I want to buy. You can wander the isles for a while and you will easily find many terrific choices. They often times have samples of wine which is nice. With many cash registers, lines never get too long which allows you to quickly get home and put your booze in the fridge. Don't bring your children because you must be 21 years of age to enter.

I stopped by Randall's after hitting up the Buffalo Brewing Company, so I was a little buzzed and excited to stop in this huge hall of alcohol.
Immediately upfront there are tons of wines and hard liquors, but I eventually found the beer at the other end of the warehouse. The beer selection was huge but I didn't stick around too long to see what all they had. I definitely need to revisit!
The service was basically limited to the folks working the cash registers. There was a huge amount of customers, so there was little personal interaction. I didn't see anybody advising customers of their beers.
I bought a sixer of Old Foghorn, and it seemed to be reasonably priced, but I didn't really look at the other beer prices to compare and contrast.
Overall this is a huge place, and I wish I spent more than five minutes there. I would recommend at least a half an hour for the first time visitor to see what all beers they have to offer.

I visited Randall's for the first time about a week ago.I had been on the phone with them numerous times trying to narrow down my shopping list.I originally called them looking for '09 Nemesis and was ecstatic when they told me they had multiple 4 packs available.Charmane(not sure if spelling is correct)helped me out and was very knowledgeable.I purchased the Nemesis 4 pack($25.00),a Trappistes Rochefort 10 and a bomber each of Maharaja and Hog Heaven.The selection was good and service was sufficient.They carry all the usual suspects(Avery,Bells,New Holland,North Coast,Great Divide,Founders)but they also had an excellent selection of German and Belgian beers,including Achel(which is new to this market)and Lindeman's Faro.My only regret was that I didn't visit there before they had sold out of NH Dragon's Milk.Overall,an excellent resource for great beer.

It's good to see another good spot for quality beer open in the city. I've been stopping in frequently since they opened in 2007.
The store is a large renovated warehouse with only half the space being used currently. Everything is well organized and clean and the beer up-to-date. The only drawbacks are nocold beer sold and making your own sixers. That's a small price to pay to find quality beers so close to my home.
Service is available to answer any questions but will not bother you.
The selection is varied and growing with every visit. Domestically, you'll find favorites such as Bell's, Great Divide, New Belgium,North Coast, Odell, and Goose Island among others. The selection of Belgian beers is strong (Trappistes Rochefort, St. Bernardus, Duvel, Houblon Chouffe, Chimay, and many others) along with a nice stable of beers from Germany, the UK, and Canada.
Prices are comparable to everyone else in the area.

One of the few places in the city that has a nice selection. They have some great beers, but not really a anything that will blow your mind. Good selection of Belgians, a variety of German beers, and a solid choice of American micros.
If you want to avoid driving out to the county or over to the "East side" this is the place. It is also very easy to access being just south of I-44 off Jefferson. And there is definitely room to grow, with only about half of the building currently accessible to customers.
