Great craft selection, and a nice bar to have a cheese plate and draft beer before finishing up the weekly shopping.

I waited a while before entering my impressions, and a good thing I did. It took me a while to even notice they have taps in the beer section. Which is joined to the cheese section. So, a fancy, upscale supermarket just opened on the site of an old motel. First thing first, NO CASH, plastic only, though they’ll trade your cash for a gift card at the service desk. A big focus on local suppliers for food, a separate restaurant & grill (and they’re opening another restaurant across the street). Beers are mostly from Windy City, which some beer geeks might call "limited." But still a lot of choice stuff. Locals where possible, no Half Acre yet, IIRC, and nobody has 3F’s lately, and a lot of odd Belgians and sours. I was there for tasting by Lakefront and Sixpoint, and only later realized they also had six taps behind the cheese counter. I finally took advantage of those taps by getting the other two Solemn Oath beers I missed yet, and they were only $4 (one in a shaker, another in a tulip). Best of all, I bought a small chunk of their cheese to have with my Khlorus, and with out asking, the counterman sliced it up and gave it to me on a plate with some cheesy toast points. Another craft beer oasis in the former desert of the western burbs.
