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.

small selection of large format bottles with a greater six pack selection in the coolers. seemed to have a good variety of more regional breweries and a number of seasonals available.

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.

Very much an urban liquor store, quite a few coolers of beer and racks of craft. Decent German selection, a lot of craft bombers. Overall a decent selection. The store is located directly across the street from Revolution, so its certainly worth stopping for a local and out of towner alike. If you are looking for something rare or special, this is probably not your place.

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.

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).

Stumbled across this place after leaving Revolution... looks like an ethnic liquor store, reminds me of Puerto Rico Food & Liqours... about 15 coolers, filled mostly with sixers, but they had a dedicated section of singles by style... great and varied selection, they had a lot of beers that I havenít seen at other stores, a 6 pack of Bellís Batch 10, TNP, Utopias, and plenty of Three Floydís AK, PJ and RB...downside is that despite the great selection prices are about 20% more than anywhere else and a lot of the beers didnít seem to be fresh

A bit of a diamond in the rough across the street from Revolution. Tons of bombers, everything is refrigerated. They also have a few Polish meads as well. Itís location is convenient and the selection is pretty good. Iíd check here if you canít find what youíre looking for at Binnyís because they sold out.

2010: Huge expansion, 6-8 more cooler doors of craft bombers and imports. Best selection in a 2 mile radius.
This is the best beer spot in Logan Square. The majority of the beer is in the coolers, check out the 2 doors of bombers and 750s on the end corner. Its a diamond in the rough, but the beer buyer is doing a great job here. Seasonals, good range of Belgians, plenty of micro bombers. Lots of cooler space devoted to imports. Small selection of glassware, and generally someone around to help out.

i never would have guessed the selection contained inside this store existed. one of the north sides better spots, huge selection of american craft as well as belgians and germans. prices are not the greatest but thats to be expected. found some haand bryggeriet! after i saw about 50% of the coolers i was satisfied, i had no idea they continued aroudn teh corner with more in store. definately worth a stop if in the area, and if you found yourself stuck in the area and in need of a drink, you will find plenty here to keep you happy.
