This place has a very clean small warehouse feel with lost of neon signs and its own parking lot. Inside there are coolers along the wall with more neon. I would say over 3/4 of the beer is in coolers with a smaller two isles of beer warm and in the back of the store. They have most of the WI beers you could want with lots of the one-off/limited release beers aswell. They had a good amount of Stone beers and a lot of the other big named American craft breweries along with a few European breweries aswell. It felt like a well stocked store catering to Illinois beerhunters. Staff was mostly chating at the checkout but I didn't need help finding the beer. This will be a definite stop when I'm in the area.

One of the best options for the Racine area. Great selection of limited beers and great service from the staff. Prices are reasonable and if you can't find it on the shelf they'll usually try and get it for you. Usually try to stop in a couple times a month to see what's new and pick up a few things.

Best bottle shop in Racine County. Always reasonable prices and always bringing in premium and limited release selections. Staff and ownership is top notch. Always friendly, eager to help and assist in carrying my many selections to the car. Will special order.

For the area, I could see this being the best option. Two long racks filled on three sides to choose for room temp. A lot of the standards are here with the only real gems being New Glarus for those of us out of state. The cooler section is on the entire back wall and you are spoiled for choice in this sense.

Nothing special about the place, typical liquor store. Was never bothered during my time though no one seemed to have bad attitudes. Can pick up anything else you need here as it verges on a super store with it's size and stock.

Without a doubt, the best liquor store in Racine. Tons of Domestic and imported beers including a Hugh selection of craft beers. Not a lot of single domestic craft bottles, but plenty of bombers and imported singles. Three taps on the wall which have previously included Breakfast Stout and HopSlam.

Plenty of wine and specialty liquors. I recently needed to buy some mead and was surprised to find no less than five brands, each with multiple variants.

This is my go-to place for all my beer, wine, and liquor needs.

5/2/12 UPDATE
Timers recently expanded their craft beer section to include a wider variety of Belgian Beers and Ciders. Also added their first build your own six pack area. Great additions to an already great location.

OK - so, I'm a fanboy now. Selection continues to expand with a greater number of breweries represented, especially in the Belgian and import areas. Recently picked up a few Cantillon, Madme Rose, Bourbon County, and Lolita.

Being one of the highest turn bottle shops in SE Wisconsin gives them the ability to ask for and get a wide variety of brews you simply won't find in most places.

The crew at Timers continues to listen to their customers and improve on the experience of shopping for specialty beer, wine, liquor, and cigars. If you aren't approached while visiting, any one of the staff is always happy to help guide you towards a knowledgable, informed choice.

Also keep an eye out for their wine tastings, beer dinners, and cigar dinners. Lots of fun events with lots of money raised for local charities.

Drop in and check it out. Very impressive.

Here's a great store to stop at if you're in the Racine area and you happen to enjoy good beer :). Right on the corner of two fairly busy roads - this store is pretty easy to spot from the street. Upon entering it's a large warehouse style store like most, however everything is really clean and organized.

The back wall features all coolers with a great representation of beers from locals to out of state stuff. New Glarus, Weyerbacher, New Belgium, Lake Louie, Ale Aslyum, Tyranena, etc. They also have a good amount of bombers and six packs on the shelves as well...check both places and the end caps to find some interesting stuff. I grabbed the last 2011 La Folie :)

Also along the back wall they have 3 taps on each side for growler fills, which is pretty cool. Nothing too crazy when I was there and I didn't have a growler...but good to know and the prices were pretty cheap for fills.

Overall, everyone was nice here and the selection was good. I'd definitely stop by here again when in the area and encourage anyone else to do the same!
