Whenever Iím near Peoria, I stop at Friar Tuck. By now, anyone Iím with already knows that weíll be spending a half hour there. The selection is great for that part of Illinois, and thereís always a hidden gem somewhere. Never be afraid to look in the back of shelves, as Iíve often found some older beers hidden. Itís not always a good thing, but it can be a great way to find a hidden gem. Iíve not found the staff to be overly knowledgeable(although they are more than willing to try and help), but then Iím usually there in the "off" hours. Iíve found that calling is a better way to find someone that knows their beer. Usually there is some 3 Fonteinen stuff on the shelves, and, occasionally, Cantillon for you sour-followers.

After having recently been to both the Peoria and Springfield locations, I can say without a doubt that the Peoria location, although it seems smaller, has a much larger beer selection. Still has a mix-a-six wall, but I find the Peoria location has more singles available.

Best place between St. Louis and Chicago to find micro beers or anything really. Amazing selection. They recently stopped carrying three floyds. But almost any other midwest micro is here,

Whenever Iím stuck in central Illinois, I take solace in knowing the Friar Tuckís will be stocked up with craft beer. They have everything from rare Lost Abbey releases to retired Eurpean colloboration beers -- not to mention all of the great midwest bottles. The staff never seems to know whatís going on when Iím in, but the prices and selection are cetainly right.

This store is pretty amazing being that it is located in central Illinois, or southern Illinois if you are from the Chicagoland area/suburbs. The store has an awesome selection of wine, spirits, and beer. I know for a fact that if the distributors in town have it, Friar Tuck will have the product on their shelf. Some of the other folks who have commented on the store said that only the manager and asst. mananger are knowledgable in beer; I disagree. Most of the staff knows a thing or two about beer; however, now that I think about it those comments were from a few years ago. Last time I stopped in the staff was friendly and very helpful. Oh, and the selection of cheeses are awesome. It is a liquor store, not a grocery store, so the food that they do have is good. If you are ever in need of a lot of alcohol, especially beer, the Friar is the place to go. They have really good prices.

Iím pretty new to the beer world, but from what Iíve run across Friar Tuck seems to be the best place to buy micro brews in the area. Their selection is huge and they have a great international selection but itís predominantly domestics here. As a new comer I was somewhat overwhelmed with their selection and my only gripe is that there was no one around to get advice or suggestions from. As far as price goes they are very reasonable, but I do wish they would bump there mix-a-six price down from $9.99. In my opinion overall a great place for the beer lover.

Wanted to try St. Bernardus Abt 12 for awhile, and saw that they where the closest place for me to purchase it. They have a vary nice selection of beers, including 50 + Belgians, lots of other foreign imports and American craft beers. I met the manager and he was very friendly and knowledgable about the beers they had. The waitstaff was also friendly. Worth the trip.
Always make sure you check the date on the beers. They can tend to sell old beer that has left its peak years ago.

Great selection of craft brews. Prices are reasonable and the staff is helpful. Some of the stuff might be older, but you arenít going to find a better selection anywhere near peoria.

I drop in here whenever Iím driving through Peoria to see whatís new. The selection is pretty solid, just a huge aisle of beer and a walk-in cooler area. They also have some homebrew supplies. If you find the right staff, they know plenty about beer. Today, I managed to do that and ended up with a free sample while sitting around talking beer. If youíre anywhere near Peoria, you should definitely stop in.

Was here quite some time ago, just getting around to doing some place ratings. Not unlike any other Friar Tuck that Iíve been to. As always, you have to watch out for how old beer is thatís on the shelves at Friar Tuck
