Ok, this is a dual review. Half for me, half for a coworker.
Me: I've been to Archer numerous times on my business trips to Chicago, and refuse to go anywhere else. The store is a "blink and you miss it" place about a mile from Midway Airport, but don't let looks deceive you. Randy has built up a quality selection and even better reputation. They have a ton of Midwest brews, including FFF, Founders, Bells, Flossomor Station, Great Lakes, etc, in addition to others from around the US. Prices are very respectable and won't break the bank. Service is generally very good, and Randy is more than happy to recommend some brews if you are curious. He has even pulled something special from the back for me on one occasion. All-in-all, a must hit location in the Chicago area.
Coworker: Great service. I had been wanting some Three Floyds and placed an order for shipment. Everything went smoothly and my packages were delivered quickly. Randy even remembered that I had wanted Dreadnaught and e-mailed me the next time he got more in. I should have another package arriving today or tomorrow.

Overall: Regardless if you want to swing by in person or place an order for shipping, an exceptional place. And one of the few stores we know of that sells and ships FFF.

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.
