Yes, they take credit now. The place is cluttered, yes, and has seen better times (think 70ís era liquor store that hasnít changed). The craft beer selection is pretty darn good, and they have lots of non-craft imports if thatís your thing. The staff in the aisles are helpful when needed, but the cashiers all seem to wish they were somewhere else. Not a destination, but worth a stop if youíre nearby.

This place has been a price leader for booze for as long as I can remember and since Iíve been recently tasting a lot of craft beer and was in the area I wanted to see if theyíve been keeping up with the times. I was happy to see the nice selection of beers which I hadnít seen around the area and was able to pick out about 100 bucks worth of new tastes. ALL of the craft is warm, along with most of the German singles but thatís ok because I wouldnít have been able to fit it all in my fridge. Iím not much for ambiance or service, not for nothing but Iíd rather be left alone to peruse the wares of a beer store (to read labels for alcohol content etc.). The Kenwood staff was happy to oblige never bothering me once as I walked back and forth for a half an hour, smoking my e-cig, filling a shopping cart with beer (yeah carts too!). I was there on a Monday at like 1pm and it was perfect but I know the place gets jammed especially around party time. If you are looking at value for a big party or just stocking up this is the place to go, Oh and they take credit cards now!

This is a cluttered and yet strangely well organized place. They have deals on things that seem almost shocking. Selection is okay, service was less than. Convenience and cleanliness seem to be lesser priority and if I recall correctly they donít take credit cards which I think summed up the whole experince for me.

Holy f**k this place iscluttered! Too many people (I went at 11am on a weekday), too many Bud/Miller/Coors cases stacked as high as it can get. Extreamly hard to walk through this outdated location. This is the total opposite of Binnyís South Loop. Alright getting to the craft isle, not organized but has many selections Ɣ pack of double crooked tree, some Jolly pumpkin stuff). Prices seem a bit less than Archer but still prefer my guys at Archer. I was in there loking for a few Germen Hefes for a buddy getting Married that day, they only had the usual Hacker and Paulner. No Wiehenstephner, Ayinger or other goddies. Didnít loke that. This place is hella packed in and outside of people. The workers there donít give a shit, one almost ran me over with a dolly full of budlight. The hell with this place.

Kenwood is a love/hate place for me. The parking is horrendous no matter what the day and what the time. The cashiers are all horrid little monsters and the store is always wall-to-wall people. Luckily, the beer section, and Larry the beer guy make this place worth visiting. The beer section has a decent selection of beer available in Illinois (Three Floyds, Bells, Flossmoor, etc.) The prices are always beyond reasonable, and are typically several dollars cheaper than Archer Liquors. The best thing about their beer section is Larry the beer guy. He is always helpful and has no problem digging through a million boxes in the back room for what you want. Plus, he will go way out of his way to order anything you ask him to. His dedication to quality beer makes Kenwood worth going to. Parking is horrid, the cashiers need to be shot, the stockers are D-bags, the aisles are crowded as all hell...But the service in the beer section is what makes it worthwhile.

Stopped in today during break from work. Place had a bigger craft brewing section than I expected. Tons of 3 Floyds, Founder, DFH, Southern Tier, Flossmoor and decent selection of Belgains. Prices are dirt cheap compare to other liquors stores and especially compare to Binnyís. KBS was 8.98 compate to $13 at Binnyís. Found Flossmoor Station Ahtanumous IPA for $7.99 a bomber which might cheaper than what it was at Flossmoor itself. You wonít find anything rare but cannot beat the prices. I canít stand the ladies that work the registers as one of them gave me a dirty look for wanting to buy such wierd beers. Fuck off.

Looking at the ratings for this place you can see that theyíve added a lot of beers in the last couple of years. Sure, when you enter there is a mountain of Bud and tubs full of swill. But if you go to the last isle in the back corner there is quite a selection! 3Floyds, Lagunitas, Ska, Trappistes, Rogue, Dogfish Head, Founderís, Avery, Unibroue and lots of others and they seem to add new ones frequently. Pretty big selection of wine, too.And the prices are better than anywhere. There is a scary amount of money pouring through the place everyday! They also take checks.... MORE: it just gets better.... more beers. We asked the beer guy to add Nogne and Fantome and Southern tier. He did in a big way!!

Recently stopped in to grab some Dogfish Head 90 minute. I was surprised by the new huge selection. Better than anyplace Iíve seen. I grabbed some Lagunitas Kill Ugly Radio and Dogfish Head Groch Fock too. You canít find those anywhere. Service was helpful, prices very low. The place isnít pretty, so donít expect a gourmet cheese bar to compliment.

All Cash! Good picking for some special beer, always able to find some ABT. 12 plus a couple of other gems. Park on the side street, bring CASH and know what you want. The help really donít know much about GOOD beer, only the basic crap (MGD, Lite, Bud, etc...) Go to the last aisle in the south end of the store, next to the soda.
