This store is about two miles from the hotel I'm staying at on a trip to Chicago, and is almost directly across the street from Midway airport. I stopped by today to pick up a few things not available in Ohio: Allagash, New Belgium, Port, Firestone, and my first bottles of Three Floyds :)

This has the look and feel of a corner liquor store which it is- but as soon as you walk in you can tell the selection is much better than average.

Service seemed okay- shortly after I walked in I was asked if I needed help with anything, but just said I was browsing and wasn't interrupted again.

Selection was well above average, though a bit unorganized. Cases were stacked everywhere, and some single bottles were near the cases, others on shelving towards the back of the store. A great selection of bombers/750s as well. There were some refrigerators but it seemed mostly for the Bud/Miller/Coors, with a few crafts thrown in.

Overall, if I lived nearby, I would definitely be a regular, and will certainly swing by again if in the area, though I'm not sure I would go out of my way to stop if just driving through town on the freeway.

This is a little diamond in the rough. I stopped in after flying into Midway and was not disappointed. It looks like a little hole in the wall and is pretty small, but the selection is very good. Lots of good local stuff from Chicago breweries as well as some really nice selections from other national distro breweries.

My favorite liquor store. Hands down. I work nearby a couple of times a month and always stop in to see what's new - even though I already know what's there via their website,
"fresh report" email, frequently updated social media, and beer menus. Management and staff are all knowledgeable and very helpful, but they let you peruse the store without being aggressive. They have plenty to choose from - they don't have everything - but they always have an exceptional selection of beer, including rarities and 'whales'. One of my favorite things about Archer is that almost all of their beer can be purchased as a single bottle. I love to mix it up frequently & try new beers, but I also love to go back to beers I love without having to commit to a 4/6 pack at a time, so this is perfect for my purchasing habits. Another huge accolade is that they ship beer. They also carry a small amount of home brew equipment and ingredients - but it's very limited.
