My first of what will most likely be many up-coming ratings in the state of Arkansas, this place was pretty solid. I have no ability to compare it to near-by places, but I was able to find some bombers that I hadnít previously had, and thought they had a pretty decent selection. The make-your-own 6 pack wall was shockingly disappointing, but I walked away with some interesting stuff from the fridge. The staffer I was chatting with didnít seem to have a clue about beer, but thatís fine. Iíll be back to this place, but that might be more due to its location (and lack of anything else around) than anything else.
Edit: If you had told me 2 months ago Iíd be the "mayor" of a store in Arkansas, well..................

Nice big building, great overall alcohol selection, beer included. I like their "build-a-6-pack" for $9.99, and I like they keep some singles refrigerated. You can choose between a 4/6 pack and a 22oz single on many beers as well. Good belgian selection, pretty helpful staff, decent value. Iíll be coming here again!

Nice selection of brews in what appears to be limited because of state laws (according to the clerk there). The guy that helped me was all about beer. He was well aware of what the state of Arkansas could get (according to the laws) and what they couldnít get. Most of the beers were nothing that I couldnít already get in Texas but if it exists in Arkansas then itís probably at this store.

Iíve been visiting Colonial for the last few years. Theyíve consistently updated and enlarged their beer offering during this time. For the Little Rock area it is one of the best for selection. Descent international offerings, with a moderate amount of Belgian and UK beers. Staff is very helpful and fairly knowledgeable on their beer. I wonít drive out of my way on a cross-country trip, but if youíre in Little Rock already you canít go wrong here.

Arkansas continues to get more and more great craft beer. Colonial handles almost everything that is available in the state. This is primarily a wine store but they do have a beer experts. Very nice store visually and lots of registers, so no waiting at the counter.

Nice beer selection with many Iím not familiar with, and some I can only find sparingly in Louisiana. Large building with tremendous wine selection. I have not been to other beer retailers in Little Rock, so I canít guage against other venues properly. However, I will definitely visit this one again.

Colonial has been a long time quality beer, wine and spirits shop in Little Rock. A recent move and expansion has given them much needed room for growth. Historically their beer selection has been inline with other area providers. To my delight a recent stop showed several new offerings on the shelf - Delirium, Karmeliet, Kasteel, Koningshoeven, North Coast and a few others. A quick conversation with one of the staff indicated one of their distributors had expanded their selection. Good news for Arkansas!
