this place is mostly a wine shop but also has a small walk-in cooler featuring mostly domestic micros and some imports along with a couple bmc selections. two brothers, goose island, flying dog, etc. were available. again, not a huge selection. also a small cheese counter here. service was helpful and the store is quite clean, i doubt you'd get old or mistreated product here. prices are reasonable for the area. not a destination to go for beer but if you're grocery shopping at the markets nearby and need some beer you'll be able to find something decent here. (565 characters)

Stopped in here today, to survey the walk-in beer cooler. The shop is located in a shopping center with 2 grocery stores, and 2 wine shops. The listing on BA was old, for "Cabernet & Co." which moved out 2 years ago. Peterson is the new name, and they have 3 locations in the area.

Beer was in the rear of the store, in a walk in cooler on the right. Some wine rack shelving in front of the windowed cooler, with about 10 varieties of bombers stacked horizontally.

The walk-in had a pretty good selection, nothing crazy really. Founders Centennial, Metro Flywheel, 2 Bros Cane & Ebel, BCBS/Sofie/Matilda, Bells, GLBC, Ska Modus Hoperandi & Euphoria, and random imports, the best were Weihenstephaner, Chimay, & Duvel.

Cashier was nice, and cleared up the history of the place as "Cabernet & Co." Better selection than TJ's next door, but not overly extensive in the scheme of things. (889 characters)

OK, so it's obviously a wine store. That said, once you've made your way through the racks and racks of vino, there is a (beautiful) large walk-in for beer at the back. The selection doesn't focus so much on breadth as it does on depth; a few breweries are featured but done so in great detail. Almost all of the bottled offerings from Goose Island and Two Brothers are here not to mention a large selection of Boston Brewing Co., Capital, Ska! and a few others which escape me.

The help is geared towards wine, but the service is friendly (and female, a rarity in this field!) and able to answer most questions readily.

The prices weren't great, but then again, they weren't bad either.

A quick note: as of a few weeks ago (mid-November 2006), there was still a large stash of Bell's Oberon and Amber for all you Illinois Bell's lovers. (847 characters)
