Selection was a bit lacking - I inquired about the cases of Bourbon County and Sucaba sitting on top of the shelves and basically got laughed at (they were empty). Did find one guy who pointed me in the direction of one of their other stores that supposedly has a better selection. I never made it over there.

Great store with a large selection. Great Divide, Dogfish, Flying Dog, Firestone Walker, and so on. Dale and Tim have a great knowledge of beer, and were making some great suggestions. Store is warehouse style with concrete floors and metal shelves.

Impressive selection of beer and wine. Plenty of imported and craft brews. Wine selection is extensive, and if they donít have it, ask and theyíll try to get it for you. Very knowledgeable staff. Whatever question you have there is someone who can answer it for you. They even have a wine club! Not much on ambience, but they do have little perks like a bottle chiller and frequent tastings.

I had a later afternoon flight out, and a meeting on this side of town and wanted to visit Lunar brewing. To kill time, I hit a few of the local bottle shops listed in the area. Warehouse style liquor store, though not overly big. Beer is on three and a half huge racks, and some in coolers. The better beer is kept warm, and I would worry about turnover but the selection is really solid. They donít single anything out, but if you live in the area I am sure this is a part of your regular rotation. Service was friendly, decent store. They had a nice super clean public bathroom, which you rarely see at bottle shops. I visited this location prior to visiting the Elmhurst location. It is SPOOKY how similar the two stores are. During my visit to the second store, I honestly thought I had circled back to this location. Wild.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

I drove into the lot and thought I had misdirected myself, since the building looked just like the store in Elmhurst. Inside, the layout was identical, even to the placement of the beers in the aisles by country, microbrew, et cetera. In all fairness, Iím giving this the same rating as the other Salís. Sadly, thoí, since I had been in Elmhurst recently, they had nothing new to offer today.

A warehouse type store with naked ceilings and concrete floors, metal shelving a la Home Depot. Quite large. Located in what seems to be a largely hispanic area. A pain to get to because of massive Lake St. construction. Luckily, this place has quite a huge selection of beers amongst other things. A large but standard selection of Europeans, mostly germans. A fairly good selection of belgians including Rochefort 10 and 8. Most micros are regional...full line of Bells, most great lakes, all goose island...standard bombers from avery and bear republic. Pretty much anything out by Dogfish head including Au Courant. Mega finds include Peche Mortel for $20 and an empty shelf of 120 Minute. Prices were good in some areas and a lot in others...cheap SN...three floyds at $8.5...prices
