Midtown, "The Mecca," is by far my favorite place to shop hands down in the Tulsa area. Selection is outstanding and knowledge of products are equally great. Nice friendly service that I don't get from a lot of other stores. Most the time I don't even get eye contact when I enter a bottle shop. The staff is always eager to help with a decision or pricing.
One thing that I truly love is the price sheets around the store. This makes for easy choosing for those who hate to ask questions while shopping.
The mix a six selection is the best I have seen and a steal as far as pricing. I enjoy it when I enter a store with more beer than liquor or wine. Although, they do have a great selection of vino as well.
The place I frequent the most and not because its the best location for me.

I do not live in Tulsa but stop here everytime I am in town. Amazing selection. I always plan to keep myself in control but always buy more than I need. There is too much temptation! The staff is always friendly and Carter is great to speak with about any of the beer selections.
As everyone else has stated, the selection is the best I have found in Tulsa and I think I have seen all of beer stores... This isn't a wine store with beer on the side. Beer is the focus and I couldn't be more pleased.

Midtown Liquor is the best beer spot in Tulsa, period. The store has Oklahoma's best selection, the best service, and they take the best care of their product.
I have found that they consistently have items on the shelf that you can't get at any other store in Tulsa or Oklahoma City. I appreciate that Carter always knows what beers are coming our way and he seems to keep our distributors interested in getting new product to Oklahoma.
With very reasonable prices, extensive inventory, great service, and the convenience of the store next door (for kegs, ice, cold 3.2, etc), Midtown Liquor is the beer hub of Tulsa.

For Oklahoma, the selection is as good as it gets. The "What's New/What's Coming" board was a great feature of this store. The staff are professional and knowledgeable. The store was busier than I expected during my 10:00 am in the morning (Sat.) visit. From that, I'd expect a pretty high turnover (freshness - if I want an aged beer, I'll do it myself). Many of the other visitors seemed to be perusing the beer selections. That further affirmed this suspicion. Its location is good for me and probably many other visitors to Tulsa (close to the ballpark and racetrack). Kind of unsuspecting in that it is in a strip mall. Worth seeking out.

The "go to place" to buy beer in Tulsa. This is one of those places that you can spend 45 minutes picking out your selection.
Carter is the owner and he has a whiteboard telling you what's new and what's coming. This is a beer advocates store. They have basically anything and everything that is available in the area and Carter is always fighting for new beers. He has a one of the best selections on his pick a six and his prices rival anyone in Tulsa.
He has a great Belgium selection as well as seasonals.
This guy cares about beer and cares about your selection.
This is a place that you can talk about beer in the beer store.
He also has a tastings at his store.
Best beer store in Tulsa.
Long Live Carter!!!

This is my go to liquor store. I discovered it since I moved close by it. I love the pick six beer selection. They have more local beers than any others. I'm happy to call this my neighborhood store! The staff are very friendly and helpful also. I only wish we could get cold beer!

Thank goodness I ignored the very few negative reviews. If you have a problem with this place, please show me your idea of a good store (in Oklahoma) and I'll make a special trip to see it.
Having lived in Belgium for two years, this store somewhat reminded me of the rural Belgian beer stores: Pallets of beer to buy in bulk on the floors, as well as shelves with singles and 4- and 6-packs.
The smaller shelf has the make-your-own 6-packs with some decent options, but I did most of my buying from the other shelf that breaks down the beer by region. Very good selection of Belgians — came home with a few different offerings from Dupont, a couple Flemish Reds (Strubbe's and Duchesse), plus two cases of Leffe for a friend who drinks the sh!t out of that stuff. Also bought some bottles from Boulevard, Great Divide, Mikkeller, plus some stuff from a couple of OK breweries I've wanted to try (Choc and Coop).
The staff was friendly while I shopped. At checkout they boxed up everything and loaded up my car for me. Since I spent nearly $400, that was a lot of loading.
*Now, for the customer service story: I dropped by this store on my way home to Memphis, TN after visiting a friend near Tulsa. When I got home (7 hours later), I realized that somehow I didn't make it home with a 4-pack of Kwak. I called the store, and the guy who answered it was the guy who loaded up my car. Told him about the missing beers, and the guy didn't question me or anything. He apologized, and since I live so far away and it will be a long time before I'm back, he promised to ship me that 4-pack and pay for the shipping out of his own pocket.
It's one thing to have good selection; it's quite another to have staff that understands the value of a customer and making sure they're satisfied. I just wish Memphis was a lot closer to this store; I'd be a regular for sure.

Outside of Macadoodles in Missouri this place has the best selection by far in the area. Unfortunately with Oklahoma beer laws they can't keep the beer cold, but when I go to TX or MO they have their best selection out of the coolers anyway. So I can't lower the beer quality for silly laws :). Jacob (the hairy one) has always been very helpful and gives me tips on when the freshest beer come in the store. For example Coop F-5 came in yesterday!!!! Oh this store helps make me a hoppy girl :)
