Great selection. A selection I never thought I would have within close driving range. Descent help, especially when the owner is in.

This truelly is a great place, neatly laid out with a large selection of micro brew BIG bottles, belgian brews, and world wide brews. Beers not found at Binnyís or other chicagoland places. Picked up a Nogne, Stusie Pannepot, Rogue IPA, Hop Rod Rye, Mikkeller, Jolly Pumpkin and a couple of Southern Tier. Store attendant was nice and helpful. I will be hitting this place up more often. Near Wrigleyville, easy to find. A must for beer lovers 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.

This little hole in the wall is the best beer store in Chicago. It has the rarest micros in the city and is the only place that I have seen have Hoppiní Frog and Moylans in the north. Love their import selection as well, even having dark horizon and many mikkeller beers. The staff is very informed, I would recommend this place to anyone coming to the city or the locals who have not stumbled upon it yet. Its always good to support your small local shops over the big guys anyways.

MrFacto turned me on to this little bottle shop and Iím glad he did. It has a ton of rare scandinavian bottles, as well as other import gems. The woman working there at 11:00 on a Sunday was very helpful and knowledgable, and I will add this to my beer run list every time Iím in Chicago.

An awsome little beer and wine shop that has an amazing selection of American micros and also lots of harder to find Euros including: Nogne, Mikkeller, and De Dolle. The staff is also knowledgeable and helpful. Always worth a stop if you are in the area.

Amazing place that has tons of "rare" European bottles. Iíd go here anytime Iím in Chicago and had money to blow. The tasting room is nice, but the air conditioning was broken.

Stopped by here before work the other day. Large beer selection in a small area in the back of the store. I wish there were more American micros in single bottles, but they still had a good selection of singles from around the world. Good service as well. A pretty nice place!

nice little shop at leavitt and addison. parking in the back is nice. came here because they had some rare norweigan pickups. website is well updated and i was able to get good help over the phone when i asked how much of which beers they had. missed the friday tasting since i had to go earlier in order to get the fancy beers before they got snagged, but itís cool that they have that. employees were helpful and into good beer. the one female employee was really happy when she overheard us mentioning a new jolly pumpkin beer. lots of rare beers there, the place was pretty cool. singles, too, which is always a plus. very tiny markup on some bottles, but well worth it for the service and attention. elgauchoís review is spot on. also, importer clearly cares about his store, and thatís really a big plus.
