This is a dangerous beer store. They have a big selection that runs two long isles with a long row of cooler doors behind them. They have a great selection of local and import stuff and they keep getting new things weekly. I usually stop in to see what's new and interesting or to ask about a new release when I hear they are coming out. The staff really now their stuff and it seems like there is always someone in the beer section to help. I think they get a lot of overwhelmed customers looking for "a blue moon type of beer" so they are happy to chat when then meet another beer geek.
They also have a tasting area with 8 taps, I believe, and a lecture series that includes wine producers, brewers and other interesting people with an interest in alcohol. Also grab one of the addicting little hand made caramels at the checkout counter. I typically end up walking out with a box when I only want to go in and just see what's new.

I am from Michigan and my daughter goes to college in Chicago. This store is right around the corner from her and has an outstanding selection. I have talked to a few of the employees and they are very helpful, but not always knowledgable, although one of the employees, I believe may have been a manager was excellent and knew his stuff. I visit the store every time I go to Chicago to see my daughter, am never disappointed and always leave with at least a couple 6's. Highly recommend this store.

Let me start by saying, the parking is absolutely horrible!!! This is one of the worst parking lots I've ever seen!!! That being said, the beer selection is amazing!!! The staff is friendly & they know their beer. But if you're looking for easy parking, best prices & an easy, come-and-go I would look elsewhere.
