A decent shop. OK service. Good selection of liquors and craft brews. If seems like had to find brews can be found here after other stores have sold out. Price are a little higher then other too. Will stop in again if I cant find something.

A beer shop in downtown Chicago. Quite a lot of bottles, both locals and international beers. I was surprised too see that quite a few of the beers were sold in six packs only. There were many beers I could not try since I donít want six bottles when Iím leaving by flight the day after. Prices are a bit high, but you find interesting beers here. Service was not that good, they were not offering any help.

Great liquor store in the south loop of downtown Chicago. Large selection of beers, micro brews, craft beers, and other liquor. Prices are higher but fine for the location. It is a good place to go to in downtown.

Small shop full of great beer (and wine FWIW), especially good selection of Belgian imports. Helpful staff, knowledgeable without being overbearing. Only criticism is the prices are on the steep side compared to some of the chain stores like Binnyís, but there is definitely a few gems that I saw only here while in Chicago.

From the outside, there isnít much of an indication that there is going to be a decent range of craft beer in here but I was pleasantly surprised. Solid range with some nice extras. I canít comment on value as Iím not from around here. Service was crap. Noone asked if I wanted any help and I couldnít find anyone to ask questions to. As I was looking however, I did see that they keep their íultra rareí stuff out the back for good customers only which pisses me off a little but whatever floats ya boat I guess. Solid range though and could be a good little local

This place is a joke! Someone told me to go here and that it was some great awesome place and so great ETC... Yada yada yada... But it sucked... Never going back, never a joke.. This place has a weak selection of beer and a funny septic tank smell. Very over priced and the beer is not catagorized correctly. Okay why such a bad experience? first, the beer I bought was not even what I wanted when I called they said they carried Green Flash brews when I got there they said that they didínt, wow?! Second, the beer the guy working at the register reccomended was horrible, some Old Thumper. Well, not horrible but cmon Old Thumper... Third, the beer when I got home was skunked, it was expired! Fourth, the guy at the register when I came in said he could break a hundred dollar bill. I bought all together 3 six packs and 2 singles totaling for about 50 bucks. When I get to the register he said let me see if I actually have enough to break the 100 then says no when i SAW CLEARLY that he had the change . He says I can only break the bill if you buy another six pack.. I had my friend pay with his credit card and then for icing on the cake he wwas charged twice..., This place sucks.. Dont waste your time!

Utterly misnamed. Warehouse? The atmosphere is more like a high-end wine store in a recently-gentrified neighborhood. Overall, the selection is not as good as Binnyís, but they have a few things Iíve never seen at Binnyís - like Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin or Lost Abbey 10 Commandments. The staff seems knowledgable, if only because they seem jealous of my purchase every time I go there. Itís tough for me to judge value, since Iím recently relocated to Chicago from Milwaukee, where the prices are much better. But this place is worth going out of your way for, just to see what rarities they might have.

Ran into this place going to a function at Grant Park, this is near a well know jazz establishment Ledgends. The place was a hidden gem, I swear I expected a whole lot less, maybe at most a Fat Tire, Hieneken, Blue moon kinda place, but I was totally shocked. Lots of Bombers, Big Bottle named stuff such as FFF, Bells, Alllagash, Olfkabrikken, Abbeys de Rocs, Chimey, Bosteels, GI, Victory, Brooklyn, DFH, Southern Tier well you get the point. This place is neat and had 6-8 wall to wall coolers with Bombers and six packs. The price was average, I was expecting it to be pricier due to the location but not the case, I got a 750ml bottle of Abbeys de Rocs Grand Cru for $8.99, not bad. ohh and I was able to buy cups (plastic 12oz) for 10 cents, which came in handy! Not a Binnyís or a Samís but I still liked that this was within walking distance from Grant Park.
