Spacious liquor store with loads of liquor, beer wine and cider. The beer selection was pretty big, with almost everything refrigerated. A few beers each of most well know craft brewers and lots of local stuff. I havenít been to many US stores, but I thought the selection was pretty great. Prices were a bit hit or miss, but seemed decent. Only downside was that their card reader had a problem with my card and that many beers were only available in 4 packs. Good store overall.

Liquor store located really close to the Revolution brewpub in Chicago. Selection is large with quite a bit of harder to find beers which may have collected some dusts. Staff was really helpful trying to help us find specific beers and looking for cold beers. Prices are fair. Located close to the train which make it an easy place to get to.

Liquor store across the street and down a bit from Revolution. I admit that I parked in their lot for my time there and at the Brewpub. As noted, doesnt look like much from the outside, but they really do have a lot of space devoted to beer inside. This is s quality bottle shop, but it has a hard time competing in price or selection with Binnyís

Bottle shop with lots of local options. Great wine selection also. Prices are competitive for the area, maybe slightly high. Above average beer selection.

Just about across the street from Revolution, so itís an easy stop if youíre headed there. Looks kind of like a typical crappy liquor store from the outside, but inside they have a massive beer selection. Lots of six packs and singles from local and regional breweries Half Acre, Revolution, Goose, Pipeworks, Three Floyds...etc. More sixers than singles (mostly large format bottles for that). They also had a decent selection of imports and out of the area beers...saw a number of the Eclipse variants, for instance.

Only real complaint here is that maybe the prices were a bit on the high side. But convenient location near Revolution and good selection.

Vas Foremost is probably the best beer & liquor store in Logan Square. The coolers have a solid selection of domestic, import and very local brews, including plenty of Pipeworks/Revolution etc. They will receive a small amount of rare items too, so always worth checking in on. Would be great with a 12oz singles/mix a six option but you canít have it all. The staff are always very friendly.

Nice selection of beers. Saw quite a lot interesting ones here. No singles which was a problem for me. No service as it seemed to be a corner liquor store.

Visited August 14, 2013.

This store is definitely better than the Logan Square Pantry across the street but with the prices what they are here Iíd almost rather shop over there. That said there is a pretty good selection of locals and some nationally distributed stuff. Saw some Eclipse bottles and some Bruery anniversary beer among plenty of other things. Despite that the store definitely has a corner liquor/grocery store feel to it. A couple doors down from Revolution Brewing which is nice.

Visiting Chicago and staying in the Logan Square area, I found Vas Foremost to live up to expectations. Has a huge selection of craft beer and tons of local Chicago options like Pipeworks, Half Acre, Finches, etc. I ended up walking back to the apartment with a huge box of bombers!

Solid beer shop. Walked over after having a few at Revolution - the only 12 oz bottles available were in 6-packs, but there was a really nice selection of bombers. Couple hundred craft beers available here. Bomber prices seemed to be $8 - $16 (for the ones I looked at).
