Visited during Dark Lord Day. Not often will you find a place with such a passionate staff. That's the highlight here, not like the beer selection isn't great, it is, but it seemed like the entire staff was passionate about fine ale. I spoke with several of them for awhile, and they visit Belgium, taste different batches of the beers they sell and are very knowledgable about everything. You get the sense that they sell every beer that is worth selling. The selection is very nice. They seem to specialize in Belgian ale and lambics in particular, but they have a lot of fine American crafts and other imports as well. I really think West Lakeview is an impressive establishment.

While this may be an awesome store to visit, I am very disappointed in their online service, as well as, customer service via email. I placed an order on June 7th and did not get an update until June 23rd about shipping. It was for 6 bottles!!!! Come on! The sad thing is that I had to call. I also received and email with a FedEx tracking number that said it would show up today (6/23), but it's being shipped today.

I'm a bit sketchy about the IPA's that I ordered as they are now 3 weeks older. I hope that they compensated for such. I hope that they can get their orders caught up and no one else has to go through this kind of delay.

What can be said other than THANK YOU! WLVL deserves it's World Class Rating. Exceptional service and selection at reasonable prices in a great storefront. Was able to find an outstanding selection of local and regional micros and a great cross section from across the country. The well known and lesser distributed breweries too. A considerable quantity of seasonal & special releases, as well as the regular stuff. The imports were amazing. Possibly the best Mikkeller selection I've ever seen. Was even offered extremely hard to find items from their cellar! Super Folks! I can't recommend this one high enough.
