It's good to see another good spot for quality beer open in the city. I've been stopping in frequently since they opened in 2007.

The store is a large renovated warehouse with only half the space being used currently. Everything is well organized and clean and the beer up-to-date. The only drawbacks are nocold beer sold and making your own sixers. That's a small price to pay to find quality beers so close to my home.

Service is available to answer any questions but will not bother you.

The selection is varied and growing with every visit. Domestically, you'll find favorites such as Bell's, Great Divide, New Belgium,North Coast, Odell, and Goose Island among others. The selection of Belgian beers is strong (Trappistes Rochefort, St. Bernardus, Duvel, Houblon Chouffe, Chimay, and many others) along with a nice stable of beers from Germany, the UK, and Canada.

Prices are comparable to everyone else in the area.

This place is in a sketchy part of the city with an occasionally sketchy crowd. Huge warehouse with lots of great distro beers and lots of locals that I was looking for. Will always stop in to see what is available.

This is probably the largest and is the most centrally located Randall's, but only middle of the road for me. Selection is huge although from a quality side watch out; there is a good amount of overage beer here and they only occasionally catch it and mark it down. My other issue with their selection is the VIP membership for limited release. They hold a lot of beer back for VIP only to put it on the floor weeks later with no communication if you were on the VIP wait list. Always ask for what you want, but don't be surprised if you get a dirty look.

The vibe of the store is a little odd. It is in an old warehouse so there is a ton of space and selection across all types of alcohol. It is also located near downtown, so the selection and crowd in the store gets a little rough at times, but their security and customer service helping people is always good.

Overall, I shop here regularly and still hold out hope that one day the VIP card will actually get me contacted for something limited.

Decent selection of beer although the vast majority of the store is wine and liquor. They keep their limited allocations off the shelves and only sell them to regular customers. Staff never leaves the registers but they are friendly enough when you are ready to check out.

Service is what keeps this place low rated.
