Visited while on my trip to chicago. Filled my cart with goodies I can’t get in MI and it cost me just over $100! It was nice not having to pay deposit. The staff was extremely helpful, and I walked around for about 45 minutes. They even hooked me up with a six pack of Zombie Dust! Great spot to stop on your way out of the city with a parking lot!

Visited in October 2011. Nice selection in this centrally located store, though no unusual beers as far as I could see. The store itself was impersonal, but it did not matter.
I must say that from a from a Swedish perspective the prices were very low. A 6 PK of Bells Kalamazoo stout was 10.99, in Sweden if lucky I would get two bottles for that price.
The service was descent.

Wow, coming from Ontario where all we have is the government-run LCBO, I am blown away by the selection in this place. Rows and rows of great American craft brews, and a good selection of imports. I need to travel south of the border more often.

Stopped by during a conference in Downtown Chicago. I actually had exceptional service as opposed to everyone here, I think I was talking to the buyer, he had all the best recommendations for local craft and let me into his secret backstock with solid 3F bombers. Awesome spot!

This is a Binny’s, and as such, they have a massive selection at very fair prices. If you want any help finding anything, good luck flagging anyone down who will be able to help you, unless the actual buyer is there (I forget his name at the moment). They have a good amount of beer also in the cooler, so that is convenient, and if you happen by at the right time, you can find limited releases as well.

Service was crappy, noone gave asked if I needed help after about 25 mins of browsing and couldnt find the ’beer guy’ when I asked. Loved the selection though, not much UK and austrlian stuff but makes up for that with the US stuff. Not a great deal of hard to get beers but plenty of good ones still

The beer guy here does a good of communicating through email when new stuff is in. However, the store and selection are small and gone right away. Overall, selection isn’t that great, never see anything that I want besides when special releases come in.

Not nearly as broad a selection as the Marcey St. Location a few miles north. However, this is located in the loop, has parking, is right next to the L, and still has a very solid selection and often has the same deals as the other larger locations.

Conveniently located about two blocks from our hotel during our last stop on our brewery tour. Not quite sure why this place is ranked so low. Huge liquor and wine selection but the beer selection is impressive as well. Tons of great breweries including Port, Ska, Stone, Mikkeller, New Belgium, Lost Abbey, Hoppin’ Frog, Goose Island and Dogfish Head to name a few. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable. Richie I think his name was even took our names down to call us to let us know when the Vanilla Bourbon County arrived and then told us about a limited Three Floyd’s/Dogfish Head release when we came in to pick them up.
