Did a quick and easy mailorder from this great place. Since they just began shipping, Julian was extremely helpful and generous enough to send the package first, then I sent payment. Package was shipped very well and was received 3 days after ordering. Definitely recommended to visit this place or order online.

I was surprised to find out that an El Cajon store had such a decent selection. Not the best service, but like the previous posts have stated, they do have some hard to find retired beers, mainly because of the low traffic volumes.

I was told about this place by a fellow associate at work.I must say this place is a must for beer lovers.The thing that makes this great is the selection.I was able to find beers that are retired like Stone 12th anniversary bitter chocolate oatmeal stout.Overall itís good place to go for hard to find beers.

I checked out windy city today. They have a decent selection of beer, particularly imports. However, something that surprised me was the number of older brews that they have had sitting around for a while, like stone tenth aniv IPA. Located in an ugly neighborhood. Iím not likely to visit here often.

A good place to check out if youíre in the area. Usually have some Vertical Epics from a few years back. Guys are always telling you about new beers they are getting. Carry Alpine too! (when they bottle which is rare now days)

This place is 2 mins. From Me. They have the Usual From Stone, Alesmith, Coronado, Alpine( Ale,), Green Flash Etc. They Still Have Stone 11 th anniversary. Stick to The newest Releases. Had a few Old Beers from There. Alesmith ESB and Anderson Valley Barney Flats. If Its Not New and Not Higher Alcohol check Dates.

Ah windy city, a funny place with a funny vibe, I check in a good amount when I drive by. Sketchy dudes, tons of big bottles of old old old stone 10th and a number of crazy older beers. Worth checking to see what they have, prices could be better.
