Nice beer store. Good selection of beers, and a $10.99 mix-and-match 6-pack program. Lots of stuff I havenít had, but Iím from out of town so I expected a bit of that. Worthwhile stop.

Typical Friar Tuck, if you have been to one before. Very big store, with lots of wine, liquor, and beer. Beer selection is very good - imports, American craft, lots of relatively local Chicago and Wisconsin beers. Fari build your own 6-pack section. Prices arenít the best, but definitely seems to be the bext selection in the area.

There was quite a bit of selection as far as liquor stores go. The mix and match was extensive as well as a ton of bombers. Most of the craft beer was was kept warm, good for people who are traveling through. Very good store, will be back sometime.

Pretty solid juice store that I like to hit when Iím in the Peoria area. Huge selection, but be careful, a lot of the bottles are dusty and old. I love the make your own 6 pack selection and the insane amount of craft options on the back wall. They sell some home brewing equipment as well. Best beer-centric store in the Peoria area.

Large beer, wine and liquor store. Some cheese etc. available too.
Excellent selection for all spirits. If they sonít have it, they will call the distributor and try to get it for you. Pricing is about average, but with a large number of brews to choose from it doesnít bother me. Friar Tuck also offers a lot of single beers too. Big cooler for ready to go beer.
Not much bad to say about this store. I try to stop every time I go through Peoria.

Whenever Iím near Peoria, I stop at Friar Tuck. By now, anyone Iím with already knows that weíll be spending a half hour there. The selection is great for that part of Illinois, and thereís always a hidden gem somewhere. Never be afraid to look in the back of shelves, as Iíve often found some older beers hidden. Itís not always a good thing, but it can be a great way to find a hidden gem. Iíve not found the staff to be overly knowledgeable(although they are more than willing to try and help), but then Iím usually there in the "off" hours. Iíve found that calling is a better way to find someone that knows their beer. Usually there is some 3 Fonteinen stuff on the shelves, and, occasionally, Cantillon for you sour-followers.

After having recently been to both the Peoria and Springfield locations, I can say without a doubt that the Peoria location, although it seems smaller, has a much larger beer selection. Still has a mix-a-six wall, but I find the Peoria location has more singles available.

Best place between St. Louis and Chicago to find micro beers or anything really. Amazing selection. They recently stopped carrying three floyds. But almost any other midwest micro is here,

Whenever Iím stuck in central Illinois, I take solace in knowing the Friar Tuckís will be stocked up with craft beer. They have everything from rare Lost Abbey releases to retired Eurpean colloboration beers -- not to mention all of the great midwest bottles. The staff never seems to know whatís going on when Iím in, but the prices and selection are cetainly right.

This store is pretty amazing being that it is located in central Illinois, or southern Illinois if you are from the Chicagoland area/suburbs. The store has an awesome selection of wine, spirits, and beer. I know for a fact that if the distributors in town have it, Friar Tuck will have the product on their shelf. Some of the other folks who have commented on the store said that only the manager and asst. mananger are knowledgable in beer; I disagree. Most of the staff knows a thing or two about beer; however, now that I think about it those comments were from a few years ago. Last time I stopped in the staff was friendly and very helpful. Oh, and the selection of cheeses are awesome. It is a liquor store, not a grocery store, so the food that they do have is good. If you are ever in need of a lot of alcohol, especially beer, the Friar is the place to go. They have really good prices.
