Big store with dedicated parking lot. Nice selection of beers - regional, US, and imports. Recently expanded their build your own six pack so quite a few to choose from. A good selection of local beers. One of the main college liquor stores so plan on getting carded if you’re under 40 (even at the front door on Friday/Saturday nights).
A warehouse style liquor store. Selection here is great, but the prices and help tend to be better at Sahara Mart. Price is probably slightly better there too. Bloomington is blessed with multiple great stores.
Located in an old grocery store, this chain liquor store is the main store in town. Has a nice selection of beers. Prices are typical. Am pleasantly surprised that they have a craft brew section despite being located in a college town, where swill is most popular.
The mothership is still strong and well stocked. It seems as though the import section has suffered just a bit - used to be a much wider variety of English and German beers, but the Belgians are still well represented. US micros are bangin’ though, with all the locals (Upland, New Albanian, Barley Island) along with Three Floyds, Goose Island, Tyranana, Two Brothers, and many other varieties. Surprised to see how well stocked the selection was.
A large selection, but not very many choice beers- massive, mediocre selection. The service is terrible. Most of the staff seems to think that all microbrews are delicious. Not a lot of critical thinking here. Most of the beer is overpriced.
A good selection of beer, but the variety has been waning over time. Pretty impressive for a college-town liquor store though. Cold room is very excellent and well stocked. Helpful staff if you can manage to catch the right people.

Has eleven locations in Bloomington and is spreading across Indiana. Inventory varies by location, but the main store on College has the best selection - actually pretty impressive for the area. Avoid on "thirsty" nights, the line can wind throughout the store. And prepare for double-ID checks.
