Store is HUGE, atmosphere is very good. they have a tasting station with a server behind a bar handing out samples of different wines and beers. The wine and liquor selection is very big, the macro beer selection is also pretty big. The craft beer selection is good, but not great. They have the usual mix a six which a lot of people were partaking in while i was there. They also have lots of premixed packs of beer (3pk,4pk,6pk) from different breweries. I liked that they had beer box sets from different counties of the world. The bomber selection is about 4 shelves, roughly 100 bottles from a pretty good range of breweries. I bought 18 bombers and they had it carried out to my car. service was wonderful. Will be stopping by again on my way home.

12/28/13 Docking them on freshness, been finding a lot of old & out of date beers on their shelves. Check them dates, especially on hoppy stuff...

All beers I've purchased were in good shape.

First-rate & helpful service same as their Joplin location.

I rate this location slightly better than Joplin, a lot of overlap on offerings except when in comes to larger format bottles. They have way more here. Way more Southern Tier & Arcadia offerings, they had KBS on the shelf Joplin Didn't, likewise on Moylans. Plenty of Bells, Founders, Odell amongst others

They are similar in pricing to the Joplin store, some good deals to be had, but some pricey beers too. I like this store better than Joplin's, but alas don't get to it as much, I plan on coming more in the future to be sure

Macadoodles is a must-visit for BAs who live in NW Arkansas or SW Missouri, or for those visiting.

I lived in NW Arkansas about seven years ago, and am back visiting family now. Macadoodles was the standard stop outside of our pathetically dry county in Arkansas, even seven years back. And today, they've outdone themselves by taking strides with their beer selection.

Bottom line: the selection at this place speaks for itself. Lots of regional brews for starters (O'Fallon, Boulevard, Schlafly, Berghoff, Shiner, Dixie), plus tons of great American craft (Bell's, Odell, Avery, Southern Tier, Ommegang, Arcadia, Rogue, Bear Republic, Tommyknocker, Left Hand, New Belgium, Big Sky), Belgians (Poperings, Gulden Draak, Westmalle, Brugse Zot, Petrus, Delirium Tremens, Maredsous, Unibroue), and other imports.

The selection of 22oz bombers and 750ml Belgian bottles is improving but could still get better. Still, had all kinds of Schlafly Reserve and special Boulevard selections, more than enough to quench my thirst. Lots of Belgians are also available in 4-packs of 11.2oz bottles, and they have the capacity to carry 12ers of things like Boulevard and Sierra Nevada.

The service is generally fantastic at Macadoodles. Every time I go in somebody greets me, and the people who work there are very personable. I talked with one of the guys in their beer section, and he told me they had upwards of 400 beers in the store. And they always help you take a big order out to the car, or offer to help even for a small order.

One little gripe: on my last run, I picked up a few sixers and several Belgian-style bottles, including one of Poperings Hommel Ale. In trying to get it all to fit into a box, the cashier flipped the Poperings onto its head and jammed it in, just about giving me a beer geek coronary. Even though the bottle cost less than half the price I've seen it sold for in New York and Ohio (!), it's no cheap bottle of beer and deserved its due respect. Once I took the box, I mentioned it had live yeast in it and turned it back over. It had mixed into a yeasty sediment tea, but it will all settle out eventually. These things happen, but at a place that has such great service they should be sure to educate their people about live ale!

Again, the bottom line is that the quality is fantastic, selection is ever expanding, service is generally great, and it's a must for any BA in the area!

Cheers!

Macadoodles is located right on US-71 in Pineville, MO. From my understanding, this is the original location which opened in 1997. From the outside, Macs looks like a hillbilly log cabin or trading post with wooden poles & wagon wheel benches with horseshoe cup holders (cool!). Upon entering, I was immediately greeted which makes one feel they've come to the right place to spend their money. The first thing I noticed is how organized the place is with beer, wines & spirits divided equally, as well as mixers, snacks & specialty foods. They even have a sample bar where people can try before they buy! I tried the new Guinness 250th Anniversary Stout. The second thing I noticed was how crazy, busy this place was. This must be the only good liquor store for miles, because it was a freakin' "madhouse" when I visited on a Friday afternoon. I'm not sure how many beers they actually carry in stock, but I'd guesstimate 300+. Not as many as their newer Joplin location, but enough that a beer geek can find something to quench their thirst. They have at least 6 or so cooler doors & 2 shelves devoted to micro staples such as Anderson Valley, Abita, Avery, Bear Republic, Bells, New Holland, Mendocino, New Belgium, Sierra Nevada, etc... along with local/regionals like Boulevard, Mueller, O'Fallon & Schlafly plus the import selection is decent with Belgium & Germany being especially well represented. There's a good selection of singles (probably a 1/3 of a row), but be forewarned that MO law legally requires a person to buy/pick 6, as they cannot sell 12 oz. singles. The prices are actually very reasonable when compared to other location, such as the Brown Derby stores which I've found to be as much as $1-3 bucks higher on sixers/bombers. All-in-all, I found Mac's to be a pleasant shopping experience and plan to return whenever I'm in the area. As an added bonus for those just passing through, Mac's has a Shell self-service refueling plaza out front. So what's better than gas, snacks & road beers to go? Not much!

I wasn't able to go myself but made a wish list and called the store. I asked for Delirium Noel, Caracole Ambree, Bell's Two-Hearted Ale, North Coast Old Rasputin RIS, Left Hand Milk Stout, Unibroue La Fin du Monde, Ayinger Celebrator, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA and hoped they'd have a couple of them -- they had all but the Dogfish Head... SCORE!! I asked if they'd have them boxed and waiting at the register for pickup. He said absolutely no problem and 15 minutes later my beer was picked up and I didn't feel like I was putting anyone out much by asking them to stop by the store for me. I'm anxious to go myself (it's 2 hours from me, I'm in beer wasteland, the River Valley of AR). Who knows what other goodness might be there!

A very nice place to be had here.

From the outside it looks like one big C-Store or something along those lines, but when you walk in you quickly realize this place has quite a liquor section.

The beer selection while not being huge, is still pretty solid. For this reason I give it a 4.0, would have to see a little more to bump it up to the 4.5/5.0 range.

What they do have though it outstanding from a quality standpoint. They have everything from The St. Bernardus line of beers to Brasserie De Rocs Grand Cru.... to Duvel.. to The Rogue line, Bell's line, Unibroue line, Celebrator and on and on.

Simply put something for just about everyone, regardless of style preferences.

The staff was very helpful and went far and beyond the call of duty, as I saw them helping multiple people decide on what to purchase.

I highly reccomend this place, especially given the relative lack of quality beer stores in this general area.
