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.

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.
