Two visits, early August 2016. Small, narrow shop, very classy, very cramped - has a "big city" feel to it, actually, in that it reminds me of some smaller upscale shops Iíve seen in the more congested parts of Chicago, Boston and New York. The first thing I noticed going in was the little cheese cooler stocked with expensive goodies like Cypress Grove. Havenít really looked at wines or spirits yet but expect itís mostly high-end (at least for this area). The beer selection is definitely not as big as what youíd find at several other places, but they have stuff that I havenít seen elsewhere, such as the Zenne Valley geuze & kriek. More Belgians than most local places - and essentially no macro junk. At least one employee here really knows his stuff also, which isnít something I see at a lot of local establishments. Definitely not an every week stop for me - but just as definitely one to keep an eye on, and theyíre doing free Belgian beer tastings every week, Iíll have to try to get to one of those.

Lower rating is only because its 80% (?) wine but a good supply of ales that are hard to find, not far from the Wi / Il border so I was able to get beer not available in Wisconsin. Looked like a real good supply of Mead and Ciders were also available.

Great little store. I came in here on a whim looking to find a case of GI BCS. No go, but ended up talking with a guy who I think was the owners son for about 2 hours. I left with a lot less than I wanted to because I had just tapped myself out at Binnys. I ended up grabbing a Rodenbach Grand Cru for a trade I was working on and a bottle of Clown Shoes Supa Hero that, at the time, was unadded to RB. Overall, great place. I canít wait to come back.

I will keep this short and simple. Best beer/wine shop in Rockford. Best in the area. The Artales are great, if you donít know what you want walking in, they will point you in the right direction.

This isnít a bad place, itís just that the store is predominately wine, then liquor, then in the back, some craft beers. There are finds to be had here, but most of the selection can be found at other stores nearby and for a better price. Itís worth stopping in to see what they have, but be sure to shop around too.
