This is the best place to buy rare beers in Chicago. Luckily I live about 10 min bike ride away so I can go as often as I like. The staff is very knowledgeable and the owner is very nice. They have a huge single bottle collection from small pubs and from around the world. I hear they will be opening up a small market in the adjacent room so it should be a good place for food in the future as well. I highly recommend West Lakeview Liquors to true beer appreciators.

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.

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.
