I’ve been visiting Colonial for the last few years. They’ve 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 won’t drive out of my way on a cross-country trip, but if you’re in Little Rock already you can’t go wrong here.

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 hadn’t 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 didn’t seem to have a clue about beer, but that’s fine. I’ll 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 I’d be the "mayor" of a store in Arkansas, well..................
Nice beer selection with many I’m 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 can’t guage against other venues properly. However, I will definitely visit this one again.
This store has a fine selection of beer. Unfortunately the staff knows very little about beer, and the management seems to care very little about beer. The prices are high. They are usually at least $.50 per six pack higher than other local stores. That being said they have the second best beer selection in the Little Rock area behind only Springhill in North Little Rock. If you don’t want to dive to North Little Rock this is not a bad place to stop.
