West Lakeview Liquors is a dedicated shop that focuses on presentation, selection, quality and service. I stopped in looking for something I couldn't find back in NC. The guy behind the counter suggested a beer by Mikkeller brewed only for their shop. Hopefully it'll be a good one.

They have lots of everything but seem to be particularly deep on Belgians. They have the usual six packs displayed in the coolers with the more serious beers nicely displayed on wooden shelves that cover the back of the store. They unfortunately didn't have much from FFF but it seems like everyone in the area was out or running low.

I definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Chicago. (686 characters)

Stopped in today since I was told it was a must stop by some Chicago people that I've traded with and they were right. Great selection of beers from the area which is what I was looking for while on vacation. Staff was unbelievably helpful and even offered me some Zombie Dust. The male staffer took the time to write out bars/breweries that I should visit while in town. Pretty much my ideal store (398 characters)

Pretty small and not a huge number of offerings, but the stuff that they did have was high quality. Very helpful staff. Asked about 3 Floyds stuff (because I only saw some Gumballhead and Robert the Bruce on the shelves) and he hooked me up with some Zombie Dust. Made the drive back to Minneapolis a lot better, full of happy anticipation. (343 characters)
