Archer Liquors is a very good craft beer shop by Midway airport. I stopped by based on the BA reviews.

I was looking for something I couldn't get back in NC and managed to find some FFF Dreadnaught when no one else (including the brewery) had bottles for sale. They have a good selection of American and European in six packs and larger single bottles.

This is a pretty typical liquor store from a decor perspective. The atmosphere is nothing special but that doesn't detract from what they do.

I would definitely recommend this place. It was well worth the stop.

This is a little diamond in the rough. I stopped in after flying into Midway and was not disappointed. It looks like a little hole in the wall and is pretty small, but the selection is very good. Lots of good local stuff from Chicago breweries as well as some really nice selections from other national distro breweries.

My favorite liquor store. Hands down. I work nearby a couple of times a month and always stop in to see what's new - even though I already know what's there via their website,
"fresh report" email, and frequently updated social media. Management and staff are all knowledgeable and very helpful, but they let you peruse the store without being aggressive. They have plenty to choose from - they don't have everything - but they always have an exceptional selection of beer, including rarities and 'whales'. One of my favorite things about Archer is that almost all of their beer can be purchased as a single bottle. I love to mix it up frequently & try new beers, but I also love to go back to beers I love without having to commit to a 4/6 pack at a time, so this is perfect for my purchasing habits. Another huge accolade is that they ship beer. They also carry a small amount of home brew equipment and ingredients - but it's very limited.

This is my go to spot for trying any new beer. What sets this place apart from others is that you can buy a single of any craft beer in the store. This a great way to try some of the pricier 4/6 packs without going broke.

Their beer prices are always very fair and most of the time lower than other places in the city.

This is a solid spot if you ever find yourself in the southside or near Midway airport.

this was my second trip in three years.
this is the first place you must go after arriving at midway airport because of it's proximetey to it. it takes about 10 minutes to get there. they have a parkinglot right off archer.
i got there early by 15 minutes and they let me in after i told them i came all the way from orlando
the manager gave me a tour of the beers, the selection was excellent. i wish i had this place next to me in orlando
