This is a good store to find something rare in Tulsa but no too rare. I go here to get some beers or at least try to get some you can't find anywhere in Broken Arrow. They have a wide variety to a certain extent, but nothing to get excited about. I would say Collins Midtown is a better bet, but this place will do if you know they have it.

We were meeting a couple of Tulsa friends at a restaurant/bar that happens to be three doors down from the Ranch Acres booze store.

Situated in one of those nondescript Tulsa strip malls, this place doesn't stand out. Their beer selection, to the right as you enter, is quite ample but non-wowing. A variety of six- and four-packs, single bottles and bombers distributed all over, from shelves to the floor. This seems to be a trend in Tulsa-OK beer stores; to me it looks disorganized.

Some cool stuff I spotted was Dark Truth, Old Stock, Yeti and Hercules packs, Old Ruffian, the Boulevard Smokestack series and Oklahoma brews (Prairie, Mustang, Roughtail).

Most (if not all) the beer is at room temperature. I was offered no help and saw no beer nerd around. Not my favorite store in the Tulsa area, but good if you live nearby.

Based on 2 visits there

The lay out isn't bad, but doesn't reek of organization or presentation either. The beer is pretty much organized by domestic or foreign & all large format bottles are all together

To be clear, there is a lot of old-ish beer in this store, so check carefully. I did have a few tired beers from these guys

Service was friendly, but encountered no beer talkers/geeks amongst the staff

A pretty good selection but no hard to find beers. A decent mixed sixer selection as well

Prices were pretty good on all beer

In short if I was in the neighborhood, I'd hit this place. Otherwise, I'm going to several other stores in the Tulsa area that are better, I can think of at least 4

I stopped by here on my way through Tulsa to pick up a couple of bottles of PA PBomb!. One of the store workers was dismissive when I asked if they had some other PA beers and made a smartass comment as to where all the Prairie Artisan beer goes (which he said Texas) instead of being distributed in Oklahoma. I guess he was trying to get a rise out of me since I had a UT hat on. Anyways, a second worker was very helpful and went to the back twice to try to find some for me. Which is why I gave a (3) for service. If it wasn't for him, the #1 butt-hole would have dropped it to a (2). Prices where way cheaper than what I expected. Worth a trip, avoid the pole smoker.

Thanks to Coldmeat23 for telling me about all the beer stops in Tulsa. I stopped in here a few weekends ago to grab some beers I can't get in Southern Oklahoma. The Salesmen where good, very helpful, they even gave me directions to the other beer store a ways down the road. There selection was good as far as being in Oklahoma goes. They had some Rogue, Bear Republic, Left Hand, Avery, Boulevard Smoke Stack Series, some imports. Overall I would come here again before going to the other big beer store in Tulsa.

Parkhills has a great selection of beer. They have Anderson Valley which I have never seen anywhere else in Tulsa. It's expensive but I can't blame them.

Good - I like that they put the local beers there but from other beer stores, they suck. The Belgium selection is great and have a wide variety of local beer.
Actually one of the better varieties of beer in Tulsa.

Bad - They need to keep better tabs on the dates of beers. They have a pick a six but is not the greatest selection and is probably the weakest part of the beer store.

My favorite thing about this store is that they are crazy organized. Everything is in it's perfect place. It's very nice when picking out your selection.

Ranch Acres is located at 31st & Harvard (SE Corner) in Tulsa, OK USA. They have a really solid selection of domestic & import beers with some hard-to-find bottles. Ranch Acres always stocks seasonal microbrews or limited releases, so it's always good to check here first. They still offer mixed case discounts which some places don't, so that's an added bonus for beer lovers. There's always someone around that can talk beer or at least check on availability if something's not in stock. Don't forget to check out the bargain bin before you check out!

CHEERS! Beertracker

*Note: Updating my review and increasing my overall impression since they have a beer geek like coldmeat23 on staff. The "Mix-a-Six Wall" is an added bonus. Keep up the great work!

Ranch Acres is good liquor store to go to. First of all, the staff is quite helpful, even when the store is super busy. Second, they have quite a large beer selection. They also have single bottles for $1.50 each which is very nice. Single bottles are arranged by country of origin, which helps you find things easier. The store isn't right off the main street though, so it can be hard to find, but this isn't that big of a deal. As I said before, most of what you can get in Oklahoma you can get here. This is a beer fan's liquor store.

Ranch Acres is, in my opinion, the best store in Tulsa, OK to buy beer.
They have several key salespeople who are quite well versed in their knowledge of beer. This can go all the way from discussing micro/craft brews and making recommendations, down to the bigger "name brand" brewery products. They are good about pointing newbies in the right direction, so as not to 'shock the pallet' of someone wanting to try something other than "the big three" popular beers. (It's a large leap from Bud to Imperial IPA's.)
They have got probably the largest beer selection in the state (it's the largest I've seen, and I travel within the state abit, for my job). They seem to do a very good job at getting in the seasonals/limited releases, and being able to tell you about them within a few days of their release. I've never purchased an out-of-date beer from them, which leads me to believe that they are aware of the rotation of incoming beers.
As new beers come into the state, if this store isn't the first place I find said beer (it usually is), then it's one of the first three places for it to show up.
I guess that because they keep so much stock on hand and because the turnover on product appears to be fairly quick, they have some of the best prices in the state. Sure, you can find an item or two cheaper at another store from time to time, but you can say that about any retail level store. It's the overall bill price that matters. If you do go somewhere else, be sure to check the dates before you make your purchase.

This is all only made even better by their great liquor selection and their excellent wine selection.

The Ranch is the best place in Tulsa to buy beer for several reasons.
1. They have the best selection. From rarities to the basics. Seperated by nation and brewery. The "Beer Pit" is the biggest in Tulsa if not the state
2. The staff is very helpful and knowledgable about beer. If in doubt ask for Chris, Taylor, Tim, or Clayton. If ,on the off chance, they don't have what you are looking for they will often either locate it at another store for you or find out if any is even available in the state. If it is they can have it there as soon as the next day.
3. 5% discount when you buy a case equivalent or more.
4. A Mix-a-Six Wall also organized by nation and brewery plus the current seasonals and often there are some hidden gems up there too.

Recently visited Tulsa and this was one of two bottle shops that I visited. This was the better of the two by far. The staff was friendly and helpful. The selection was really good, I found pretty much everything that I was looking for. Prices were clearly marked on the shelf beer and for the floor beer, there was a binder with all of the prices. The one brawback was the mixed six area. The selection was good but the pricing was $1.79 per bottle which is $10.74 per 6 pack. The other store I visited Midtown sucked (see my review) other that this one area as they had most of the same beers on their mixed 6 shelves but at $8.49 per 6 pack. Go to midtown for the mixed 6 or small bottle Belgian singles and then to Ranch Acres for the rest.
