Great liquor store overall. A very large selection of spirits and wines with a small bar to try out a few of their key top shelf items. For the area, a fantastic selection of single 22oz bottles, foreign and domestic, along with a nice selection of 6-pack microbrews. Quite a few rarer beers here too. I found the New Glarus Lips of Faith series, a few more rare Great Divide and Avery as well as some of the Fort Collins and some very small local breweries just over the line in Missouri. Some great international breweries as well like Westmalle and Mikkeller. A pretty large shopping cart of sale brews (older beers just past expiration) that are marked for over 50% off and most are $1-1.50 range. Staff was great and very enthusiastic about beer and were willing to help out with any questions. One thing to note, I checked their website extensively before heading over here and the selection online wasn’t really reflective of what they had due to it being slightly out of date. I will definitely make this a stop for beer when I am down at my in-laws for visits.
The staff at Randalls is always great and are all very knowledgeable and friendly. I live an hour away and make trips to the area JUST to go there because Southern Illinois is a beer poor area. They have the best selection (other than going to St Louis) anywhere in the 618 area code I have found. They have been adding quite a few new beers lately so if you have not been by in awhile check it out.
SO I have a friend in Collinsville who has this as the place to go for his beer. I must say, for Southern Illinois, definitely a quality selection. They have a decent Belgian selection, but a better American Micro selection. Probably about 200 different beers if I had to guess. Also, I picked up my GI goblet here, of all places. Definitely a must stop if in Southern IL.
What a wonderful variety of beer! I’ve sought the best of beers for quite a while (20 years). This place always seems to have something good that I haven’t tried before.
The building is nothing special but it is clean and has room for the wide variety of beers.
The staff is helpful. Thouth they offer help, they give you room to browse at your leisure.
Recommendations are posted and helpful.
Quality wine and liqour are also abundant.
I’m very glad I found this place. Not only is the selection very impressive and the staff friendly and informative, but upon my first visit they were willing to order me some beer that I had been researching for some time, no questions asked. This is my new Mecca.
this place is getting better. the new guy who orders the beer, chris is more into expanding the american craft brew section than the old guy (who is now ordering for the missouri store.) this store over all is huge. they are currently expanding the wine section which is going to open up some room for the beer. decent selection which includes the DFH basics, some avery, great divide, and of course schlafly. nice german, belgian and english sections. i like where chris is trying to take this place.
This is located in a heavy commerce section and has a nice location. The selection is very respectable. The help wasn’t intrusive, but was helpful if you had questions. A good selection of local brew and nice selection of regional microbrews. The beers are sorted by country and easy to find. Some prices are high, some are low. If you know what you are looking for and general prices in the area you can leave with some great deals. If you are on the IL side of St. Louis and visit Corral in Granite City and Radall’s you will get the best of what is available in this area of Illinois. Both are great, but the beer guy, Joe, at Corral is the most knowledgeable in the area.
It seems like I’m in Randall’s nearly every week. They have the best beer selection in the area, yet I’ve seen larger elsewhere. One younger gentleman stands out above all with his helpful knowledge... not only with the beer selection, but with hard liquer as well. They hold beer tastings every now and again on friday and saturdays. The prices are a bit high on certain things, but not for any perceptible reason that I can tell. If they don’t have what you’re looking for one trip, try again. Different beers rotate in and out of this place on a regular basis. I’ll keep going back.
I loved their beer selection. Lots of brews that are new to me. Also, many of them can be purchased in singles. Prices seemed to vary. Some were high enough to raise the eyebrows, but others beers I had seen more expensive at other places. There are LOTS of untasted brews there and I will be back.

This place is called "randall liquors" outside of the internet world. The place has an ok selection of beer, but i did find some vintage stuff here (not telling what). Prices are pretty high unfortunately. The vintage beer i was refering to was a 6pk of bells expedition from 2002. I bought it the other day and even though it had no carbonation, it was still fantastic!
