Its a nice little bottle shop, and Phil the owner is a great guy. Staff is more knowledgeable about wine than beer, but they know a bit about their styles and if you go in looking for say an IPA they can direct you to a few choices. The 3 downsides: Its more of a wine shop so selection is small. That being said you should be able to find something in a style that will please you They store a lot of their beer in cases on the floor in front of the windows. There is an overhang on the building, but it does have a southern exposure, so the beer could be stored better. Price is generally $0.50-$1.00 per container more the the big local retailers. I probably hit the shop a few times a year, and if I’m driving by I always set a side 15 min. to pop in and see what they have.

This is a little store right across from CLC in a strip mall. While it is mainly a wine store, one whole wall ( ~20ft.) is for coolers full of quality beer. American beers would include: Flossmoor Station, 2-Bros, Lakefront, 3-F, Lagunitas, and Founders. Imports include: nice selection of Unibroue, Hofbrau, Spaten, and many Belgians. Prices seem very good with some below what I have seen elsewhere. Probably the best place between DiCarlo’s and Woodmans in IL.
