Store layout is a straightforward liquor store. A lot of the bottles were in the coolers, kind of the opposite of Friar Tuck. Decent selection, not as big as Friar Tuck but pretty decent.

Super Liquor is a little more of a "hidden gem" in Peoria than Friar Tuck. Itís in the sketchy part of town. Well, letís be honest - itís in one of them any sketchy parts of Peoria. The selection is no where near the size of itís Peoria big brother, the íTuck, but they have a very respectable cooler section. They also have a pretty good selection of branded glassware. It seems that thereís only one or two people on staff that really know beer, but those that do are both very helpful and very willing to sit and talk beer for awhile. One or the other has always been working when Iíve been through. The rest of the staff is ... well, theyíre helpful, in their own right. Donít get lost after dark while leaving, though.

Nice selection of many different micros and so on. A lot of liquor and a ton of wine. The beer was definitely dusty here and there. Be careful...might find something a bit oxidized. They doní carry three floyds any more, nor does anyone else in Peoria because of distribution shenanigans. Nice, kinda divey place. Not as good as friar tucks....but they have deals that tucks doesnít at the same time.

Stopped in for the heck of it. They have a nice selection of micros and imports. If you like wine, they have a tasting room. Found Rochefort here, it wasnít at the Friar Tucks down the road. Friendly staff and worth the stop. Will be going back.

Definitely a solid selection...also, they do not turn stock well at all...they had lots of dusty bottles...first place I have seen in Illinois that you could really make your own sixer though...

Nice selection, but a bit unorganized. Their mix a six is a buch cheaper than Friar Tuckís, but noticed that a few beers that I picked up were well past their born-on-date, so I will be more careful when I go back next time.

This was two blocks from an appointment that I had, so of course I dropped in. Nice selection, but a bit skimpy on the Belgian & UK brews. Plenty of German bottles. I made good use of their "mix a six" since they carry a number of beers not found in the Chicago area. One problem: All of the rating labels by their beers had "BA" printed on them.

While you would have to say the Friar Tuck carries more microbrews and is better overall, Iíve been very impressed with Super Liquors. I have found seasonals, limited releases and one offís that the Peoria Friar Tuck didnít carry. The Belgian selection is as good as Friar Tuck, maybe better because it looks like they may have a higher turnover rate. Their German and U.K. beer sections are quite good too. The gourmet section, cheese, speciality products and snacks is better than Friar Tuckís. I guess because the store is smaller, the service is better than Friar Tuckís and the beer manager took time out to talk to me about new beers they just got in and whatís coming. And another thing Friar Tuck doesnít do, they offer 10% case discount on any type of mixed micro case or the same discount on 12 large bottles, micro, Belgian or import. You can buy lottery tickets here. The wine bar, the Wine Experience, is connected to the store, but you can sample beers there and they hold beer tastings. Super Liquors is easy to find off E. War Memorial Drive and I would highly recommend that if you are in Peoria, you check this store out.

man o man, this place holds some memories for me. My dorm buddies and I would go here from Western Illinois University to pick up good beer. At one time, they had new glarus (circa 2002). They carry alot of more rare bells stuff, three floyds, avery, two brothers, and most other midwest micros. they have a stash of 2002 rogue old crustaceon if you can find it!
