An unexpectedly good beer selection. A nice selection of lost abbey and port brewing stuff I canít get in indiana. Prices were better than most places Iíve seen. Worth swinging by if you are headed out to flossmoor.

Small but good selection, has some Lost Abbey, Green Flash and Lagunitias stuff I can not get in Indiana. Worth a stop if going to Flossmoor which is less than 5 minutes away.

in the 80ís and 90ís i used to live within walking distance of this shop, and would buy my macros and parodi cigars here. they have upgraded here, and now have a couple shelves of bombers, a good number of which i have not yet rated, and a big humidor of good cigars. i will have to come back to see if they rotate their stock often. besides, they still have a few mikkellerís bombers for me to try. unfortunately, i no longer can walk to this shop. i canít walk anywhere, except to cornfields, from this god forsaken place i have chosen to live. why? why must i suffer so? ...but i digress.

Small but quality selection of beers. Mark pretty well covered what they handle. Itís worth dropping by if youíre in the area and need some good beers. But beware of the owner. Heís a movie buff, and he & I ended up talking for over an hour about old flicks and movie stars. Donít go out of your way, but do stop in if in the area.

Very friendly people but unfortunately they had removed most of their beer aisle to accomodate a wine tasting and the beer guy was already at Dark Lord Day where I was heading next. Hard to judge selection, but I did find several bombers that were sold out elsewhere, which is a mixed blessing considering age of product. Hard to give a fair rating, but not a bad place at all.

Gotta love the dichotomy of a "family" liqour store. But seriously, this is a nice little place just a few doors down from Coldstone Creamery on Homewoodís "south side." Just two aisles, but a corner with a well chosen selection of beers not found elsewhere in this area. Off the top of my head, I find Floyds, Lagunitias, Rogue, Dogfish Head, Abita, SKA, Ommegang, Spaten, Rochfort and other Belgians. Prices for the bombers run about 50 cents less than other liquor stores. They advertise wine tastings on Friday, with beer tasting the last Friday of the month, but I havenít encountered them. My closest source for some good bottled beers, many of which I havenít tried yet.
