Lukas Liquors Superstore is truly a superstore. It is not hard to pick out the towering peak of this giant store, despite the fact that it's a good hundred yards from the street, nestled in a corner of a strip mall. My initial intention for visiting the store was to buy a keg. Good keg selection, especially when given enough time to ensure delivery from the distributor. The service was quite helpful, and upon my return visit I spent some time browsing their beer selections. Very nice selection of Belgians, and a fairly wide selection of micros as well. The real eye-opener at Lukas Liquors was the single bottles they had available for a mix-and-match six pack. For about seven fifty, you could create your own six pack from a wide variety of bottles. Deals like that will keep me coming back as I continue to expand my palate and test the waters, or beers, I should say.

I just had to make a run, after seeing the latest reviews of the place. And yes, this is a good store indeed. Much bigger than I imagined, but it is a *newer* store in the middle of the small shopping center.
Yep, 3 large isles of brews many more imports than you would imagine. I bet they stock a great deal more Belgium/German brews now versus the earlier reviews. Full line of Unibroue, also. Additionally, they carry many sizes of certain brews 12oz singles, 4/6 packs, and a pretty good line of bombers, many caged. (Why does the 750ml bomber cost much more per ounce than a 4 pack of 12oz??) (Ie bomber - $7, 4 pack $8.50)
They did ask if I needed any help, which I refused. I looked for an hour, still did not have enough time to take it all in. All selection very clean - no dust. OH !! BA reviews/ratings everywhere!! (At least for the better brews).
So, I now have a place on the far west side, to go with my east side favorite of Corral Liquors.
1/21/06 update - Yep, I now say this location is the King of Craft in STL, best place to shop for your frostys - numero uno!

Lukas Liquors is a little over an hour from my house, and given their selection, service, and prices it will become one of my regular stores.
Beer selection is back and to the right, and a nice one at that. American craft brews are not represented well, but German and Belgium beers are for sure. They were doing a Unibroue tasting when I stopped by, but I've pretty much had all of their beers. Still, good to see stores pushing the good stuff.
The gentleman running the tasting was very helpful and assisted me through my selection. I was glad to see some Brasserie de Rocs beers, which I haven't seen before, and some others like St. B pater 6 and prior 8 which can be hard to find. Great Belgian beer selection.
I'll be back.

Heading to trade for a Dark Lord in Munster, I stopped to top off my collection of Missouri Local Craft Brews with a couple of 6 packs from O'Fallon $7.50 each. Well, we ended up dropping about $90 due to the fine selection including Rogue Imperial Pale Ale ( almost all the Rogue's were available) Only their wholesalers are holding this liquor store back (no DFH). James, Mat and M.C. "Mike" are fun to talk to and have enjoyed many of the brews. If you have not been there recently your going to be pleased with the progress they are making in trying to improve the beer selection at the Ellisville, Mo. location. I enjoy the neighborhood and close proximity to I- 44 as I head East to St. Louis from Mid- Missouri.

This was a great place to stop for someone like me who can't get a decent beer selection anywhere nearby. I stocked up with about 4 cases of beers including many of my favorites like Gouden Caralous Grand Cru of the Emporer, many Unibroues, etc.
The service was excellent (possibly due to the fact that I was buying 4 cases but whatever). They helped me with the many questions I had, helped me load the beers in my car, and even gave me good directions to Schlafly's. Three of the people I talked to were somewhat knowledgable on beer but I wouldn't really rely on them for suggestions.
The only real problem I had was that a few of the obscure beers I opened when I got home were a little flat. Definitely past their prime. Although, this could be for reasons beyond the stores control as it seemed to be from specific brands. Also, I wasn't real happy seeing all the nice Belgians and Unibroues laying on their side but I was delighted to rescue many of them.
Edit: I've heard they've alleviated the problem with laying beers on their side. Very nice. It shows to me that they are dedicated to bettering their store and listening to concerns of their customers. Definitely give them a visit if you're in the area.

Quality: Overall, good, but you do run into some freshness problems, mostly on your more obscure micros and imports. A huge store that has the "most" beer in the area, but 75% of that is macros.
Service: Not all that helpful, but a couple of them are knowledgable. Do your homework yourself and you will do fine.
Selection: Once again, good overall, but nothing that most other stores in the area have. The prices are quite competetive. They have lots of case stacks (Unibroue 11, SN Celebration, and New Belguim) and a mix-a-six selection. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

Quality: Pretty good...as I've only ran into one freshness problem with all of the beer I've bought there. There's a good turnover of product, and the stuff that's been there for a while is obvious, with it's layer of dust.
Service: Average...the employee who handles the beer orders is somewhat informed and knowledgeable, but you're better off doing your homework before you visit.
Selection: Good selection of micros and imports. They have a small selection of Belgians as well, but nothing out-of-the-ordinary. Bottom line: lots of different brews, but don't expect any surprises.

They have a a really good selection of American microbrews and a decent imported selection, they don't have many Belgian brews but a few, not too bad, even a few vintage ales, a very solid beer store, you should have no problem finding something new and good, there maybe only one employee that have some knowledge about beer, other wise your on your own.
