Stopped in here while in the Rockford area and what a great shopping experience! Met the owner I believe it was but was very knowledgable about beer and gave me a lot of good recommendations when I asked for any sours he may have in stock. Prices are a buck or less compared to other beer shops in the area and will stop next time I'm in town.

This is my go to place in Rockford. It is very unassuming but it houses some damn good beer and a lot of craft beer knowledge. The staff is no pressure, but will openly answer any questions you have. If you wanna talk about beer for a while, they're willing to tell you everything you want to know. The selection is pretty damn good and it rotates quite a bit. They are the only shop in town to carry some of the up and coming Chicago breweries and they have a great selection of craft from both the States and abroad. And as an added bonus, they seem to be the only store in the area that doesn't completely jack up the prices of special releases. I'd definitely recommend this spot to anyone visiting the Rockford area.

I have lived in Rockford forever and didn't even notice this gem until recently. Sure, it's obviously labeled a wine company. However, they have quite a bit of beer waiting to be checked out in the back of the store.
I was pleasantly surprised by the staff when I walked in. He was very knowledgeable about the merchandise and offered to help if necessary. As I looked through the cooler section, I noticed quite a few brands that I had not heard of. In addition to this, directly behind me were three racks of unique and gargantuan bombers. I could browse for a long time, but time is money; a player's gotta spend it to get it. So I picked out a few interesting bottles for a very low price. I will be back several more times and would recommend to friends.
