I’ve been visiting Colonial for the last few years. They’ve consistently updated and enlarged their beer offering during this time. For the Little Rock area it is one of the best for selection. Descent international offerings, with a moderate number of Belgian and UK beers. I just stopped by after not visiting for a few months. I was pleasantly surprised at the number of Belgian beers they now stock. The staff is very helpful and fairly knowledgeable on their beer. I won’t drive out of my way on a cross-country trip, but if you’re in Little Rock already you can’t go wrong here.

I drive 100 miles for my monthly pilgrimage here. The beer guys know their stuff and give honest recommendations, which I appreciate. The growler station has a changing and interesting variety. And I appreciate their checkout service, since it usually requires a couple of sturdy guys to wheel my load out to the trunk.

The place to go in central Arkansas for your beer needs. Great selection of crafts, domestic and imports. Growler bar with tasting in the back. Nice friendly staff.

I stopped in here several times during a recent visit to LR. They have a pretty good selection of craft beer, including 6-8 different Prairie's, Old Rasputin, and Sierra Nevada Barrel Aged Narwhal. They have a decent selection of bourbon, and out of this world wine. Staff were OK, and there were plenty of them in the store.

Six station growler bar in back, w wine tasting section also. Mexican food truck in parking lot. Prices were a little high, but much larger selection than my other stop- Grapevine.

Ok I checked these guys out online , and they allowed me to put some amazing beer in my shopping cart , now I was pretty sure some of this beer they did not have but they let me put it in the cart like I said and some of the beer I looked at actually said was out of stock. After arriving at the store they looked at me like I was crazy when I said I posted an order online . Want to guess how many beers I put in my online shopping cart that they actually had? If you guess none then you had it right , the guys working the place were not much interested in helping me there was a couple groups of hot chicks looking for wine coolers , I mean hell I would have probally helped them out too.

Overall not a bad selection for Arkansas really , but I gave it a low score becaue they false advertise on their website which is a major let down , they need to get it together

The store is giant. Along with a huge wine selection it has to have the widest selection of beers over any other store in Little Rock. Clerks are extremely knowledgeable about their merchandise. I was turned on to Old Rasputin IS by their beer manager and have been quaffing them down ever since. They seem to go out of their way to provide a large singles section in their cooler which is awesome if you are just getting into the world of beer and want to try different regions and styles. I think I am going to run through the Trappists next week... All those Chimays and Orvals are looking mighty good.

I was driving through Little Rock and I dropped in hoping to find some local brews and La Folie. Hit the jackpot on local stuff but no La Folie. Huge coolers along the side and back wall as well as a long series of shelves with a good selection. Lots of beers from Diamond Bear to satisfy my search for locals. Also picked up some Goose Island. Average import selection to go along with a nice selection of micros. Very clean store and easy to navigate. There were no employees around to help out other than those at the counter.
