This place wasn't anything like I was expecting. Turns out it's a normal sized store but the area for beer is really really small. They have a selection of some Belgium's and European beers and although the area is small, they are all well thought out and of high quality. The American selection is almost all bombers and although small, is again well thought out.

The prices seem online with everyone else around the area. I think my usual beer store (Dobby's in Palatine) is a bit cheaper but considering the area, I think that's expected. There was a guy working one of the times I went who was stocking beer and was very friendly and knowledgeable. He was making chit chat about some brews and definitely enjoyed what he was talking about.

If you're just coming into town from Midway this is your place. It's only about a mile down and easy to get to. Just wish they had more to choose from but otherwise a nice stop.

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.
