I am a Kansas City expat who moved 5 years ago. Boulevard is not distributed in Chicago, so I stock up every time I visit. When I live in KC the best "Beer" liquor store was Royal on 103rd and Stateline or Gomer's on 39th. None of these store could top the selection of Chicago's several warehouse style beer/wine emporiums. Lukas Liquor is in a class of it's own and I would make the trek out to 135th just to shop this location.
They have an extensive and up to date "u.s. micro and craft" section, followed by a European section and ending with a Belgian style area. What really did it for me was most of the shelf selection was available cold so you could enjoy it as soon as you get home. In addition they had 4 doors of individual bottles that you could mix and match to "Sample". This was great way for me to sample some of the new breweries out of St. Louis without breaking the bank on several 6 packs.
The associates were knowledgable and engaging. They spoke with me about my selection and made recommendations based on style not personal taste. The store was clean in appearance and smell (this could be due to the new construction in this part of town). The bottles were not dusty, a big pet peeve of mine.
Price wise I did not see anything out of scale with normal pricing. I spent about 200$ on Boulevard, Bell's and a few Schlafly beers. Filled up my trunk nicely.
I will be coming back to this location every time I visit the area. KC beer lover's are lucky to have such a great resource. Hopefully they can open a down town / mid town location so the other's store will step it up..
