The selection is nearly great here. The store is very clean, and things are organized nicely. I have been a couple of times, and I find something that I donít expect nearly every time. This will be added to my regular circuit of beer shopping stops.

Stopped in here after leaving West Lakeview and didnít find what I was looking for there. Was pleasantly surprised to stumble on this place, whose selection was actually better than WLV!! Iíll be back.

Pretty nice shop on the northside that gets in some goodies. Prices arenít nothing too amazing, but they do tend to have a lot of fresh stuff. I prefer to go down the street to WLV, but Armanettiís does carry Flossmoor stuff. One of my standard go toos.

Stopped by here on a recent trip to Chicago. Had a very nice selection of domestics and staff was friendly and helpful. I agree that Steve was helpful and helped me carry my beer to the car. Definitely worth a stop. Nice neighborhood too.

Visted after having been to West Lakeview Liquors. Would echo comments that selection is nearly as wide as at WLV, and on the day had a lot more Three Floyds on offer, especially the six packs. Two decent shops in one neighbourhood is rare. Staff were friendly too.

Popped in here on my way to West Lake View Liquors to look for some Flossmoor as they carry their bottles. I was pleasantly surprised. Their selection was nearly as good as West Lake View, and actually a bit better as far as domestic micros go. I picked up a few bottles of Founderís Deca, for example. Steve was very friendly and helpful. If youíre going to West Lake View you should stop here as well.

Another wonderful shop!!! The owner and beer manager were there when I stopped by...great selection of awesome beers!!! Very knowledgeable and friendly! While, they didnít have anything rare when I was there, they did have everything that I wanted. Another must stop at shop.

I found myself by Armanettiís and had heard a lot about it and decided to try out their craft beer selection. They had a wide variety of your staple beers, but then they had beers that I had not seen in any other store in the Chicago area. I walked in wanting to get one or two beers and wound up walking out with 5 simply because I knew I wasnít going to get them anywhere else. I see myself going there in the future for most craft beer purchases.

A joy of a family-owned store, in a great North Side hood. Huge craft beer selection, often different than whatís at West Lakeview. Ask about the 4% disocunt card. Cool vibe: If you want a macro, you have to walk past ALL the micros and imports on the shelves, past the coolers of bigger name micros, to find the the cases they have in the corner cooler. Thatís awesome. This is the place to go for AMERICAN micros, their stock rivals Binnyís and blows away West Lakeview. Weaker on imports, but they have plenty to keep you happy, from Black Albert to all the great Belgians. And you can usually find a great deal, like Point Maibock 12-packs for $8 all this past summer, to Red Hook coffee beer for $2 a bomber. Become a regular and theyíll save rare releases for you (like KBS). So check it out, then walk down the street to Paulina Meat Market half a block away and spend the rest of your paycheck on the sausages.
