I'm looking for the liquor store with the best Beer selection in the midwest. I want to walk in and have isles and isles of different beers from all over the country/world. Needless to say Columbia, Mo is lacking. Any ideas? Or what's your favorite in your state?

I'm in Atlanta for training right now. As usually happens I find the best place a day or two before I leave. Just found out about Taco Mac in midtown. It has 140 beers on tap and atleast double that in bottles. Man! And its on the Marta line from the airport!

SE Wisconsin award goes to Discount Liquor. They have two locations one on Oklahoma ave in south Milwaukee, and one in Waukesha. The one on Oklahoma is better.

Beeradvocate has reviews on beer stores - you can probably look them up by state and sort by rating.

I see I found a rival brewer on the site. I can't come up with any comebacks after that whopping you guys gave us in basketball this week. What's your favorite place to drink in Lawrence?

As a current Columbia inhabitant, there's nothing wrong with Arena Liquor. Grindstone is passable in a pinch.

If you're back in St. Louis (or KC also, I think) Lukas Liquor is like the Wal-Mart of liquor stores. If it's distributed to MO, they probably have it. Friar Tucks in Chicago carries all of the DFH stuff that doesn't end up here, among other things.

Get yourself up to Omaha and visit Beertopia (3570 Farnam Street). The isles are not very long but they are packed full of beer from all over the world.

Beertopia - Beer Corner USA - 36th & Farnam, Omaha, Nebraska

It is by far the smallest store I have been to, but West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago is definitely my favorite at the moment. Binny's is ok, but they seem to distribute by location...the one in Schaumburg has different stuff than the one in Geneva does.
