WLV is definitely a place to stop at if you’re traveling to Chicago, with the city’s best selection of Belgian brews. I think you can find a larger quantity of Belgian’s at Binny’s, but I feel the selection here is better curated, with a real focus considering the small size of the store. They also work well with locals such as Pipeworks, and they are the only place in the city that brings in special domestic breweries such as Jester King. Definitely a place to go to if beer hunting in Chicago.

Stopped by with charule. Definitely worth the trip out there. Value is on par with the rest of the city but they definitely get the harder to get stuff. Selection isn’t huge but it is very well thought out. Definitely worth the trip.

Nice shop. Smaller then I imagined but ever usable space is covered in alcohol. Decent prices. Smaller selection bit of high quality. Out of my way but if Im around the beighborhood will stop in without question.

Having had more than one satisfying experience ordering from these good folks, I was tickled to hit the shop itself on my most recent visit to Chicago. Definitely tucked away in a cozy neighborhood, warm and relaxed vibe. Very cramped but maximally efficient use of space. Excellent but unobtrusive service. Absolutely killer selection of brews, including loads of wonderful Euro imports. I was there, however, for Pipeworks and other locals. I did not leave disappointed. Great place.

There’s a lot of rare beer in a small shop (both domestic and imported). Also a great destination for glassware too. Didn’t 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 750’s 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 I’m 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.
