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.

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.

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%)

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.

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 put in an online order as they do ship to Wyoming. I just got my order today and it was packed very well..no chance of any breakage.
I have to say the whole experience with this order went super smooth and now, I'm looking at 4 bottles each of Dark Horse Brewing's Tres Blueberry Stout and Too Cream Stout and the price of the beers AND shipping didn't exactly send me to the poor house. I love it when that happens.
I noticed that some of the prices on their website looked to be a bit steep compared to the prices I've seen for the same beers on other websites but make of that what you will. I'm very pleased with the efficency of the folks at Randall's in how they processed my order. I'll do business with them again, no problems.

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.

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.

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.

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.
