I made a few purchases online from Archer Liquors and all went great. They package mixed boxes on occasion and make limited quantities available, I was able to get a FFF mix pack which was great. You have to be part of their email list to be made aware of the packages available for purchase. You reserve your box through a quick online survey and they will contact you back to finalize payment. I got called back within an hour to wrap up my purchase. Save & quick shipping with good service. I was happy with the pricing as well. Check them out when you get the chance.

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
i picked up blackheart ipa by fff, they also had artic panzer wolf!

i will be back

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 store is about two miles from the hotel I'm staying at on a trip to Chicago, and is almost directly across the street from Midway airport. I stopped by today to pick up a few things not available in Ohio: Allagash, New Belgium, Port, Firestone, and my first bottles of Three Floyds :)

This has the look and feel of a corner liquor store which it is- but as soon as you walk in you can tell the selection is much better than average.

Service seemed okay- shortly after I walked in I was asked if I needed help with anything, but just said I was browsing and wasn't interrupted again.

Selection was well above average, though a bit unorganized. Cases were stacked everywhere, and some single bottles were near the cases, others on shelving towards the back of the store. A great selection of bombers/750s as well. There were some refrigerators but it seemed mostly for the Bud/Miller/Coors, with a few crafts thrown in.

Overall, if I lived nearby, I would definitely be a regular, and will certainly swing by again if in the area, though I'm not sure I would go out of my way to stop if just driving through town on the freeway.

Not the largest selection of craft beers from a quantity standpoint, but from a quality standpoint? Outstanding. Stopped in for the first time last night and walked away VERY impressed. One great feature? On craft beers you can take a single out of a six pack and do some sampling. Picked up several 12 oz. bottles and bombers rated 100 on http://ratebeer.com, including quite a few I have never tried. But being able to take home a single instead of a whole six pack makes me MUCH more willing to try something I haven't tried before, but am not quite sure about. This will definitely make my list of regular stores I stop at once every week or two to check out if anything new is available. They had several things I haven't seen anywhere else, so the guy who handles the beer knows his stuff extremely well.
