Gas-station liquor stores mean to stun you with their assortment of ice beers, not the nice beers. But Royal Liquors at 103rd Street and State Line Road is an oasis among the 30-pack purveyors of Bud, Miller and Coors. The store's commitment to craft beers starts with its smart staff, but don't worry about keeping up. You don't have to be a beer geek to find something new with their tutelage. Wine takes up half of the shop, and patient, unpatronizing guidance is offered over there as well. This is no mere liquor store, then, but more like your vacation home.
