I visited Randall's for the first time about a week ago.I had been on the phone with them numerous times trying to narrow down my shopping list.I originally called them looking for '09 Nemesis and was ecstatic when they told me they had multiple 4 packs available.Charmane(not sure if spelling is correct)helped me out and was very knowledgeable.I purchased the Nemesis 4 pack($25.00),a Trappistes Rochefort 10 and a bomber each of Maharaja and Hog Heaven.The selection was good and service was sufficient.They carry all the usual suspects(Avery,Bells,New Holland,North Coast,Great Divide,Founders)but they also had an excellent selection of German and Belgian beers,including Achel(which is new to this market)and Lindeman's Faro.My only regret was that I didn't visit there before they had sold out of NH Dragon's Milk.Overall,an excellent resource for great beer.

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.
