Randall's is located on Lincoln Trail in Fairview a couple blocks off the exit for I-64. Parking is plentiful around the building.
The inside of the store is spacious and well-organized. The space is divided into two rooms and the beer is in the one on the right. There are coolers full around the side and rear, and high metal shelves of brews pretty much everywhere else. The beers are segregated by region with goodies from Dogfish Head, Boulevard, Left Hand, Sierra Nevada, New Belgium, O'Fallon, Schlafly etc. As for imports, there is a good selection of beers from Belgium, Germany, the UK and others. Some beers are available in singles, and there is a small selection of glassware too.
Service here is good. The employees clearly care about beer and are friendly and helpful.
Overall this place is definitely worth hitting outside the St. Louis metro area.

I just returned from my first trip to Randall's and I'm pretty impressed. I usually shop at Corral, because I love mix your own sixers and they have a pretty good selection. I'm pretty torn now though. Randall's doesn't have mix your own sixers, but the selection is pretty fantastic. They carry a lot of the same stuff that Corral has, but they also carry a few they usually don't. For example, they had North Coast pranqster and Brother Theolonious. A large selection from Rogue, Avery's Samael, Beast, and Mephistopheles. They had some three Floyds, which I think I've seen at Corral once. Needless to say, they fill in the gaps that Corral has. Plus prices are comparable, and even beats Corral out in some areas (Avery Samael is $5, This line at Corral runs about $7).
As for service, well it was really good. As soon as I entered a guy was asking me what I was looking for. He pointed me to the beer and then came over to chat. He asked my favorite style and started making suggestions. Although I didn't really need the help, we hada pretty good dialogue. I did ask if they'd be getting any KBS in and he didn't know, so he took my name and number so he could get back to me. I'm pretty pleased about that. Overall a great place, and I'll definitely be visiting here again.

This is to update the reviews posted back in 2004, I think the store has changed quite a bit, for the better.
I would submit, the selection is MUCH more than Corral now, almost one full room is dedicated to beer. Only drawback, they have more import than U.S. craft but tons of each. All the standards are here (but not beers like Bells and New Belgium, the Mo. Store would carry those). If youve seen a beer any other place, they have it too. Three coolers for cold beer.
No mixing of six packs, a bummer. A close-out bin provided some good bargains on the Ridgeway Elf lineup.
Pricing was very good. For me, Id now go here instead of making the trip up north. Heck of a selection of liquor and wine each taking up a whole room to themselves. Some cigars, too.
Note: there's another Randall's over at:

this is really where i first started to get into beers. I originally would go to randalls to get cheap whiskey and beer but i took a walk through their beer isle one day and was amazed by all the different beers from all over. I would go on the weekends and get 2 6 packs of something new or a bomber of something i couldn't pronounce, then i discovered ayinger celebrator dopplebock..the staff isn't as knowledgable as i would like, they seem to be more into wine or other liqours, but a few of them do know their beer stuff. pricing is average on most of their stuff, surprisingly they dont have duvel which i thought was strange. if it weren't for randalls i still might be drinking bud light

Overall a pretty good selection of beers from around the world. The staff is my major complaint. When I go to, call, or email randall's I feel like I'm trouble to them. I'm usually asking about getting a particular beer that they don't carry or isn't in stock, or even checking to see if they have one that I want before I drive an hour to get there and its like I'm a pain to deal with. Might be worth a trip if you're there, but I feel like wine and liquor are what they really care about. Take a few more minutes and drive to Corral Liquor in Granite City and you'll find a better selection, better prices, and much better staff.

Randall's Wines & Spirits is just 1/4 mile from I-64, decent location, a strip mall off a major highway. Randall's is primarily a wine/spirit store, however the beer selection is superb. Perhaps 25% of the store is devoted to beer. Shelving is adequate, however a tremendous amount of light does enter the store. No macros to be found! Of notice, a huge selection of Belgiums, Cantillons, Chimay, Corsendonk, Delirium, Lindemans, Rochefort (I saw 8 ad 10), St. Bernardus and Westy's have all been spotted here. I've also notice some Hacker-Pschorr, Aventinus, Haffbreaus, etc. The English selection is also quite nice. Domestic offerings include Dogfish, Bell's, Schlafly's, Avery, Boulder, Breckenridge, Flying Dog, Goose Island, New Belgium, Rogue, just to name a few.
Prices are reasonable, but not comparable to those of Corral Liquors; Randall's is a good go-to-stop to pick up a couple hard to find brews, or a regional six-pack. Staff is pleasant and informed; service is great, quality is exceptional.
