Cozy corner store. Asked if I needed help, I said "Iím ok" and was left to browse. Selection is not vast, but a great deal of odd and a handful of rare brews I doubt I would find anywhere I usually go. The best way for me to describe it is: I can go into Samís(Marcy) or Binnyís(Niles) (which I get to every two to three months) and find 5 to 10 "new" brews. There were well over 30 brews that I have neither had nor seen before at this store. I found the prices to be comparable and perhaps slightly less than the other "local" stores I frequent. Drove around the block a couple times prior to realizing that the lot behind was not private, and for the store. A definite addition to my must go to spots, at least when I am in the area.

Visited 4 March 2009. A god send for Chicago in that it was the only place I visited that offered single 355ml bottles for sale. Interesting offerings of Founders and Bells, although the Three Floydsí offerings were low in anticipation of a delivery. Staff were friendly too. Only a short walk from Addison Brown.

Not a massive range compared to some bottle shops, but some very hard to find stuff in there. Staff know their stuff and were helpful when asked upon. Nice little, homely place. Would be a fantastic local

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!

Stopped here after a trip to Armanettiís, which is only a half mile or so away. If youíre going to one you should check out both while youíre in the neighborhood. By the way, both are relatively close to the Addison Brown Line subway stop. Lake View had a solid collection of imports. I picked up a good part of the Brew Dog line including their barrel aged beers. Their import stuff was pretty expensive, but noteworthy. On the domestic side I was a little disappointed, but since this was my first visit Iíll chalk it up to sampling error. Donít get me wrong, their selection is great, but itís getting harder and harder to find things I havenít tried. I look forward to going back.

Did a quick-and-easy mailorder through their website, which is annoying to navigate (only negative I have to say). Reasonable prices, both for bottles and shipping. Order processing and shipping time was very quick and smooth. Definitely recommend this place for mailorder and hope to visit in person some day.

Stopped in while in Chicago and was underwhelmed. A pretty good beer store, but small, and how the hell this is Chicagoís second best rated place is beyond me.
