I live in Andersonville and it makes me very happy this store is on the strip. They recently upgraded most of the inside and expanded their beer selection. The prices are a bit high, but get over it, it’s convenience. Did you go to Hopleaf? Stop by to get a night cap for home. Are you going to dine in one of the many BYOB restaurants in Andersonville? Stop here before you go. They have a huge amount of coolers, which besides lots of beer includes chilled white wine and Sake. (481 characters)

Convenient stop after and evening at the Hopleaf. Not a huge place, but a very nice selection of Chicago brews and other craft beer. Prices seem about average for Chicago. Grabbed a couple of nice bombers. (205 characters)

My wife and I spent a long weekend in Chicago and we were looking for some Zombie Dust,
Hopleaf had it on tap, and then we went to Andresonville Wine & Spirits, and although they
did not have Zombie Dust in stock, they had a great selection of craft beers from all over the
country. (285 characters)

Only problem I have with this place is that you are made to feel very uncomfortable the entire time you are in the store. I am a regular customer so it's not as if they don't recognize me yet they have someone standing in the back watching me the entire time I'm in the store. (276 characters)

Great location for a liquor store (kiddy-corner to the hopleaf and acre), and amidst all of Andersonville's great dining.

Smaller place, you're always pleasantly greeted by the guys as you walk in (tip, they get a bit offended if you don't say hi). Focus is much more on wine but they have some nice offerings in the cooler. Always check the back of the store, they keep more things warm than they have cold. Often times that's where I find the good stuff.

Outside of the regular two bros, goose, half acre stuff you'll find pretty much anywhere in Chicago I've seen some Great Divide (quite happy to always see the Oaked-Yeti variations there), Gouden Carolus & rare Sam Adams stuff there. Again, always check the back of the store.

You'll pay a few more bucks, but you might walk away with something that most people are long sold out of. They are really nice guys behind the counter, but the security guy really does enjoy his job (if you know what I mean). I'm sure it would be my local place if I lived close by. (1,023 characters)

Nice little place with a relatively good selection, they often have limited release beers for longer than other places - but it might be because they're on the expensive side and not afraid to bump up their prices when something is "hot".

A buddy clued me in that they had some Bourbon County Coffee stout left - he saw it for $14 on Friday (already a healthy but reasonable markup) - I finally got around to stopping by on Tuesday after calling to verify that they have some left - and they have just just a bit left... but now the asking price is $16.

Bad on me for waiting so long. Bad on them for their cutthroat price raising tactics. I can understand it's a small shop so they have to charge a bit more - but adding an additional markup after they've already been selling it at a lower price? Boo. (807 characters)

Stopped in on a Friday Morning, looking for some items I could not get in northern wisconsin. They had a pretty good selection overall, nothing that took my breath away, but solid.
Nice selection of Belgians, lots of Bells, goose island, great lakes, very minimal 3 floyd's which was sad. So I picked up some Edmond Fitzgerald and some christmas Imperial stout (Port) that I had not seen before. It was a good store overall, but I expected more selection in one of largest metro areas in the country. (501 characters)

Stopped in on a recent visit to Chicago to stock up for the trip back to Mississippi. There was a good selection of a wide variety of beers. I was specifically looking for Three Floyds and some other regional offerings that we can't get in the South, along with some Dogfish Head stuff. Tons of beers in the coolers, and a pretty good selection of warm beers in the back. I was surprised to find some bottles of Abita. Service was fair and prices reasonable. If I'm ever back in the Chicago area, I'll stop back and shop here. (526 characters)
