It took me a while to make my way down there but now that I have, I consider this a must stop for people making a beer trip to Chicago. It has one thing that is sorely lacking in the area: singles. You can mix and match six packs all the live long day. It is kind of cool. Normally when singles are offered, itís select bottles only but you are allowed to snatch bottles out of any six pack here. Anyway, itís been a while since Iíve been to a liquor store w/ a good singles selection and I felt like a kid in a candy store. This place is a corner store w/ a sort of food mart sort of vibe but the selection is great, Iíd say about half or a little more of the amount of stuff they stock at Binnyís which is nothing to sneeze at. Like, if Binnyís had four beers from a given micro, these guys might have two but theyíd likely be two of the better ones as it seems like their buyer has good taste. They also sell a limited range of homebrew supplies. I am going to be making this a regular stop.

Kind of shocked by this places overall score, maybe its the only thing remotely close to people that live here? Your typical rundown corner store, that for some reason carries craft beer, when no one with a mile of this place is drinking it. Dirty and dank store, weak liquor selection. There are some decent local craft beers, quite a few pipeworks, but nothing that isnít found at any Chicago store. They get their distro a week later than the northside, so maybe gems sit here when they are gone elsewhere. This isnít a spot that justifies traveling too.

I walked in this place wondering if I had read the address right I had been there a long time ago looking for imports, but then I got to the middle where all the good stuff was. Itís not a huge selection but thatís because there is no fluff, all good. I found what I was looking for, and a new find, plus a few Iíll be going back for. The staff behind the counter seemed to like working together, and were rather entertaining, Iíll be back.

Ok...Iím rating this on my shopping experience--over the internet. Randy is a class act....went out of his way to work with me and quickly at that. Packaged my order perfectly, the best of any shipper Iíve ever worked with. No, their selection isnít has huge as some, but they do stock some very select ales. TF, Bells, Goose Island...as far as Iím concerned thatís awesome! Iíll be working with Archer Liquors a lot in the future.

Havenít interacted with Archers in many years. Finally checked the site again and itís good to see Archer is doing well. Love their new packaging concept, and the selection is as good as I remember! Keep up the great work Randy!

My local bottle shop Randy rocks and keeps his locals up to date with what he has. Also has a small selection of home-brew stuff to.

website is very simple.. no shopping cart .. selection can be awesome but usually has a lot of items out of stock .. prices are decent as well as shipping .. a legit shop and wish i could order from them still.. but when a bottle broke due to idiot packaging, nothing was done..

Tiny shop with a big selection. This place carries a lot of regional micros as well as some great craft imports. I have found some cool older Jolly Pumpkin and Cantillons on the shelves before, and due to this, I recommend checking bottle dates on beers that are meant for enjoyment while fresh. The service is nice, as the staff really know about what is in the store.

This place is rather small, but they sure pack the craft beer in a small and tiny spot. Didnít need any help so Iím not sure how knowledgeable they are of beer, but their selection was top notch. Their prices were reasonable.
