Stopped in today to check out what was on the shelves. Saw here on ratebeer that they might have something I was looking for. They werenít able to find it, but I did have three people on the case, and a call to the guy in charge to try and help. If I could give a higher score for customer service, I would. Selection was organized by brewery and very good, but not as good, I think, as the ratings here suggest. Still, some hard to find things, clean, and a very helpful staff.

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 far as Iím concerned thatís awesome! Iíll be working with Archer Liquors a lot in the future. ** Update March 2014** 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.

OK place, was expecting a bit more. Very cramped with a decent selction. Not a lot of anything really. Lots of dusty, old import lagers. Some nice Belgians, but nothing out of the ordinary. Overall, it was a ok store, I felt that it was kind of dumpy. Not sure why the ratings are so high as I was pretty disappointed.

Update: Upped my ratings because repeat visits keep turning up the treasures, like the first place to have FFF Brew Doo around here. The Bellís selection is unrivaled amongst the places Iíve shopped. This place rocks! Will be a frequent shopper here. Glad one of my beer buddies turned me on to Archer Liquors. Stopped by tonight on my way home from work. Things Iíve not seen anywhere else - Avery Mephostophelese and Bellís Hell Hath No Fury as examples. The guy that owns / runs this place understands quality craft brews really well. Definitely worth a stop if youíre in the area. Will return many times! Nice website and RSS feed so you can keep up to date with new brews coming in. Excellent. One awesome feature, you can take a single from any six pack - makes it SO much easier to sample something that youíre not quite sure about, without the anxiety of blowing money on a six pack to discover you just donít like it.
