Visiting Gateway Liquors on the way to Eastern Illinois University, this place will be on my radar! My first visit was during the release of KBS and they were able to throw a 4-pack at me. I also picked up 2 Better Halfs. What an experience so far!

Both the owner and the staff know how to make your visit to their store easy and worth your trip. Ceiling fans are spread out throughout the entire store and palm trees are scattered to give you a hawaiin feel. Clutter free and everything labeled well.

The wine selection was tremendous with a 1000+ bottle wooden cellar on the east side of the shop, liquor throughout with Vodka being their top seller, and then you meet on the west side of their shop a tiered cabinet with 750s/bombers/12oz sought after beers. The cooler had tons of BMC product but also a wide variety of craft. Their breweries they sold included Founders, Arcadia, Abita, Chimay, SmuttyNose, New Belgium, Southern Tier, Kasteel, Sierra Nevada, Green Flash, Schlafly, O'Fallon, and many more.

I will proudly promote this place as one of the best liquor stores in the 100 mile path to St. Louis (not counting Champaign, IL). Will be back very soon!
