I made a few purchases online from Archer Liquors and all went great. They package mixed boxes on occasion and make limited quantities available, I was able to get a FFF mix pack which was great. You have to be part of their email list to be made aware of the packages available for purchase. You reserve your box through a quick online survey and they will contact you back to finalize payment. I got called back within an hour to wrap up my purchase. Save & quick shipping with good service. I was happy with the pricing as well. Check them out when you get the chance.

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, and frequently updated social media. 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.
