3/5  rDev -20.6%

The selection was nice in the sense that they have a bit more than Central AR, due to different distribution laws. I was able to find a few beers I can't get in Little Rock and Maumelle, including some Rogue I hadn't seen before and Mother's (before they started distributing in Cen. AR) The mix-a-six is a little weak compared to my local store but not disappointing. The different overall variety made up for that. The prices are fair. The staff did not have anymore than a "yep" or "nope" answer to some of my questions. The guy working the tasting bar was more interested in chatting up the liquor model who was there promoting whatever it was. So that was a disappointment since I couldn't pick anyone's brain about the beer they carried.

The layout is similar to their other stores. I didnt have any quality issues, everything i saw was within date. Service is what you would expect if you have been to their other stores. The employees are friendly and helpful. The selection was marginal, however i blame the state since their other stores have nice selections. The pricing was reasonable with a pick six around $9.

Macadoodles -- as a chain -- is greatness. They lean pricey (and outright expensive on some brews) but make up for it with a first-class facility and (usually) great service. Unfortunately this one is located in Arkansas and the state just doesn't have the distribution. A walk around the large beer area ultimately reveals few surprises for the state (although it's probably easily the best selection in NWA).

I was disappointed last time in as I had a hankering for some Stone and inquired if they carried it in this store. Counterman had to ask roving beer associate who ultimately had to call over a manager who had actually heard of Stone. He answered with what must be a mantra in this location: "We carry it up north." Which means they have it at the store just over the Missouri line. They are friendly enough but I have difficulty getting past the blank stares when asking about products from one of the foremost micro-brewers in the nation.

Ultimately, if you have the time, it's best to just drive the 26 miles to the Missouri store from the get-go. The selection has to be at least a third more of what they stock in Springdale -- possibly more.

This is a decent place for Arkansas. I was visiting some friends in Rogers and apparently there is no alcohol available in that town or maybe it was the county. Anyway, just a few miles away was Macadoodles which was a large strip style building filled entirely with booze. There was a large selection of Wine, spirits, and a decent selection of beer. It's definitely not the biggest beer selection I've found across America, but for Arkansas it wasn't half bad. If I lived there it would be my go to shop without a doubt.

2-23-13 Dinging them on quality, bought 2 different types of beer today, both tasted old/off. I will be more carefull with these guys in the future

Hit this a few weeks ago. Typical of the macadoodles up north as far as lay out & great customer service.

All beers were in pretty good to great shape

Selection was better than any store I've visited in this area (must re-visit liqour world to be sure) Moylans, Jolly Pumpkin, Boulevard, nice Unita (sic) selections. A few locals I've yet to see any where else... The selection is graded on curve for thhe state. If you have time I actually reccomend htting the store in Jane, MO for Bell's, Founders, laguinitas, Odell & many more

Eager customer service that liked talking beer.

Will hit these guys again! Right off the 540 so super convenient & easy to find. They also have a case discount store ( although I'm sure Sam's kicks their butt on price )

I frequent this place when I visit my sister in Bentonville. Lets just say for AR, this is a wonderland. Excellent beer selection, I would say easily over 150 beers. I even found brewdog. Staff is really not all that knowledgable about the craft beers, but you dont mind. Macadoodles is very clean, organized, and spacey. I spend about 25 mins looking around every time im in there. I found this place to be just right on price. They have some mix and match 6 packs which is nice too. All in all a great place for AR.
