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.

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 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.
