Ordered from this place as much as i could, probably why i have no savings left .. . selection is killer .. emails are taken care of with 24hrs and the lady running the beer, Kristina, is dedicated and friendly .. one of my favourite online ordering shops..

ive come by here twice. i stopped by to get the new hitachinos when they came out a year ago. i bought some older hitachinos as well that i had had before, and they actually were ’old’! they were full of sediment, apparently had been on the shelf way too long, pretty unacceptable when im paying about $6 for a 12 oz bottle. came back again recently to get the three floyds saison and all was well. however i also remember the 1st time i went a girl behind the counter told me that delerium tremens ’sucked’ and i should not buy it when she saw me looking at it, certainly not the case. for better or worse, this is one of the most important beer destinations in chicagoland, like it or not.

Small place but a lot of hard to find stuff especially the imports. Hit this after Binny’s and found quite a few different bottles. Some bottles seemed very expensive but most stuff less than i usually pay in PA. Parking was pretty easy too.

Great selection of hard to find singles. A bit pricey.

Visited during Dark Lord Day. Not often will you find a place with such a passionate staff. That’s the highlight here, not like the beer selection isn’t great, it is, but it seemed like the entire staff was passionate about fine ale. I spoke with several of them for awhile, and they visit Belgium, taste different batches of the beers they sell and are very knowledgable about everything. You get the sense that they sell every beer that is worth selling. The selection is very nice. They seem to specialize in Belgian ale and lambics in particular, but they have a lot of fine American crafts and other imports as well. I really think West Lakeview is an impressive establishment.

Cozy corner store. Asked if I needed help, I said "I’m 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 Sam’s(Marcy) or Binny’s(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 Floyds’ 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 Armanetti’s, which is only a half mile or so away. If you’re going to one you should check out both while you’re 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 I’ll chalk it up to sampling error. Don’t get me wrong, their selection is great, but it’s getting harder and harder to find things I haven’t tried. I look forward to going back.
