A great, small, local place, well worth a trip. I go for the beer but it has a tasteful selection of wine, spirits, and some gourmet foods. Knowing something about whiskey, I appreciate that they have some exclusive bottlings of domestic bourbons and the like, from their visiting Kentucky and purchasing whole barrels. Anyhow, a great and tasteful collection of craft beers, domestic and foreign, including the sole availability of Jester King and Bluegrass in Illinois. My source also for Nogne, Mikkeler, Fantome, Evil Twin, Jolly Pumpkin, etc. Very knowledge staff.

A fantastic place, that has to be seen to believed, but you dont have to, since they now do mail order. Incredible import selection of everything under the sun. Great selection of US micros too, but the crazy imports are where its at. You may pay a little extra for the rarites, but you wont find them elsewhere. Super friendly service, they really take care of the customer here. Added bonus, they just opened a small grocery next door...

I have never meet anyone more committed to outstanding customer service then Kristina at WLV. On my visit to Chicago from Kitchener Ontario I was treated with friendly super informative staff who made recommendations and told me what they themselves enjoyed with great passion and conviction. Kristina let me use her personal laptop to even check something I needed to online. I was blown away with how into craft beer she was. The stores low lighting and great selection made for a very expensive but well worth while trip. The selection didnít feel as large as some of the other stores but the quality of what was there was key. It felt like everything there I wanted. She spoke very highly of some of my favorite brewers/breweries and was very supportive of both Mikkeller and De Molen which I bought a plethora of. I also got a De Molen brewers shirt. To the staff at WLV keep doing what you are doing customer service like this has me debating a 10 hour drive back soon just for bottles absolutely spot on. Cheers!!!!

Store is a little out of the way and tricky to find. It is worth it though, best selection I have ever seen of many hard to find brews. Talked to the staff for a little while and got some great info from them. Will stop by every time I am in the area.

This is easily my favorite liquor store in the world. Itís a corner neighborhood liquor store run by very passionate folks. Space is limited, but itís full of rare micros and imports (theyíre the first in the area (and sometimes the only store around) to get new Mikkeller, Nogne O, and other Shelton Bros. imports among other stuff). They hold tastings with brewers such as Mikkeller (that was a blast!) and are very knowledgable about their products. Prices are excellent, especially considering the scale of the store compared with Samís and Binnyís. I stop here every time Iím in the area and will recommend it to anyone who will listen.

Iíve been to West Lakeview several times and canít say enough about the staff and selection. Events are some of the best in the city, free beer and food plus Brewers to talk to. Great selection, always receptive staff, and an important factor is that they donít leave everything out, limiting people to buy a couple and leave some for everyone else: a factor I really enjoy. Special stuff and unique offerings to Chicago are regular and free parking plus a nice cooler section for "Drink It Now" choices is a big plus. One of the best stores in Chicago for sheer breadth of selection plus the only place to find some breweries and the best place to find a lot of stuff from oversears. Not sure why people are rating this place when all they did is mail order from them..
