Thereís a lot of rare beer in a small shop (both domestic and imported). Also a great destination for glassware too. Didnít really pry too much into the beer knowledge of the employees - although they were attentive - but by the selection, i gotta say they probably know their stuff. Just visiting this place expanded my beer wishlist significantly. Mostly bombers and 750ís with a handful of sixers.

Great place in Chicago, they have a strong variety of Chicago, Mid-West, National, and International beers. It is a small place, they do cram a lot in a small area.

Small place, with floor-to-ceiling bottles. Cozy. Very friendly gentleman on staff willing to spend lots of time with me giving recommendations and just chatting about beer. Prices were fairly high, but relatively consistent with other prices I saw in Chicago. The selection is really where this place shines; local, near-local, U.S., and European brews in huge numbers. Would love to visit here again when Iím in Chicago.

completed a mail order of some pipeworks and single barrel bourbons. quick delivery and well packed. My only negative would be a small selection compared to what I imagine they have in the store. Would use again if searching for a specific beer.

Placed order online. Website ordering was simple and easy to use. Packaging was good and no damaged bottles. Pretty good selection of bombers, with a ton of Chicago locals. Good online bottle shop, will have to visit one day to see what the selection is like in-store.

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.

Came here based on the high reviews. Was not disappointed. The only thing I did not expect was how small the place was. The retail area was quite cramped, but they make use of every inch they can within manageability. More single bottles than Iíve ever seen in one place, bombers and standard 12 ozs both prevalent. Six packs are in their smaller refrigerated section, but most things they have in their are accessible from Binnys or even some supermarkets. You come here for the great and often very hard to find/obscure single bottles. I was very impressed by the one staff member that helped me out. He knew his stuff, and was eager to help out and make small talk. My new favorite go-to whenever Iím in the area.
