I agree with emerge077, they have shady practices. They are very misleading with their Beer Menus updates, listing beers they do not have. This is disappointing since they have a good selection of beer.

All you have to do is look past the surface to notice the shady tactics employed here... bribing customers for online reviews, selling at triple MSRP, bootlegging, posting bait & switch prices on beermenus, etc.
Now that Beer Temple has opened on Elston, I don’t have a reason to come here anymore. Fresh beer at fair prices is all I ask... Outdated beer with jacked up prices, no thanks.
After shopping here for about a year now ive noticed a few things, that maybe you wouldn’t notice at first glance. Many beers are $2-5 more than what you’d find elsewhere. Zombie Dust purchased here twice ($14.99, not $13 as listed on beermenus) has been faded both times... that should never happen. Caveat emptor.
They update beermenus at least twice a day so theyre always at the top of the "recently updated" list, which is frankly annoying (never thought id say that about a place on beermenus). More egregiously though, items listed (and updated same day) may or may not be in stock, or are a different price than listed online... shady. Stuff isnt always on the shelf and sometimes you have to ask, or they flat out dont have what they list on beermenus.
They have cleaned it up a bit inside, and added lots more beers in the front of the store. There is a great selection and new releases, just be sure to ask prices and check dates on hoppy beers. High prices keep me from stopping in more frequently.

If you’ve been here 100 times or its your first you’ll get treated the same. Freddy was very knowledgable with all beer and even threw in some free swag. Selection was great especially all of the local Chicago brews that fresh as could be.

This is what you’re looking for in a beer destination store. No ambience, just walls of beer. Encyclopedic American craft selection, the greatest hits in the imports alongside some rare gems (if I ever find some Vicaris or Thornbridge, it’s a 15 for selection), reasonable prices -- but what puts it over the top is Freddy. He’s a Chicago icon, in my book. If you ever wanted to "know a guy", and you’re into beer, this is your store. Freddy knows the local players, he gets whatever he wants from his distributors, he gives local beer star billing, he responds to facebook messages and phone calls, he knows what you want before you ask for it, he’s happy. He’s a force of nature. Dealing with Freddy reminds me of Hot Doug down the street: Once he knows you, the prices are just a guide, and if you pay in cash...well, he appreciates it. He won me over. Anything is possible here.
