Not a huge selection but good local stuff. Had some rarer stuff thatís off the shelf in Chicago. Friendly staff and service, willing to set stuff aside. Recommend.

Normal sized Cardinal Liquor on Milwaukee. Decent selection and much better than your normal liquor store. What will bring me back is their Pipeworks selection which will save a trip to the LP Binnyís.

On Milwaukee Ave between Dempster and Touhy. Big building, mostly wine and liquor, but with a wall of micros in coolers and a couple of shelves with a partial of imports. Interesting selection - a lot of CHI stuff, then an ecclectic mix of midwest-to-west stuff without really anything from east. Lotta bombers, they just added a selection of singles. Would I return, shrug? Pipeworks/Revolution are tough to find elsewhere. Their beermenus site had about 4-5 additional items that Iíd hoped for which were not in the store.

Nothing fancy about this place but the people are nice, the prices are right, and the selection is just fine and pretty large actually. A good load of Belgians, Three Floyds, Flossmoor, Goose Island, Two Brothers, etc. Saw some things Iíd never seen at other places. Lots of cold stuff too.

Been to a few beer shops in the area and I really like this place. It seemed like they had all the beers a good beer shop should have and some gems inconspicuously mixed in. Very unpretentious place with a very helpful staff that wouldnít mind if you walk the 3 beer aisles for an hour reading the backs of bottles. Average prices for most the classic european trappists, Belgiansí and Germansí but a few really good sales on select US micros. I picked up some 3Floyds that WLV didnít have. WLV might have a better overall selection but I would go here first. Plus, where else in the midwest can you get a six pack of Maiselsí Weiss Original straight from the cooler??

Great place with a great selection at decent prices. The management is friendly, and they have great case price deals.
2012: new beer managers for kegs and bottles. prices lowered on some beers by $0.50 - $1.00 / 6pk.
April 2012: Great new beers!
2013: more new beers and more personalized service. They have a great selection and will help you find a beer you love.
