P FL is my co-favorite store in the city, along with Beer Temple. The selection is great, but the Customer service you get at this place is out of this world. When you stop in, just ask to speak to junior, and he'll answer any questions you have and point you in the right direction. He truly cares about his customers, and it shows. He knows his stuff, and he doesn't jack the prices up for rare beers.

Truly one of the 2 best beer stores in Chicago.

Not sure how to review a beer store's atmosphere. It's like a convenience style grocery store, what do you expect? Zero atmosphere BUT Junior is a great dude. He's always genuinely happy to see everyone that comes in and his store has a much higher ratio of great beer than crap. His pricing is standard suggested retail but he'll randomly give you 10% off if you have a decent sized purchase (or you're just a little short like my broke ass sometimes).

Old-school bodega right here that has a massive craft selection. It doesn't have too much fat on it like other places, it is sleek and well picked. The main beer guy Junior is a knowledgeable and very accommodating beer guy. The food seems to be tax free, at least when I bought some there which is a plus I would say, fuck Crook county.

Puerto Rico Food & Liquors located in Chicagos historic Humboldt Park neighborhood is truly a hidden gem for those engulfed in the sweet luxuries of the craft beer world.
Junior will take you in like one of the family, show you around and always willing to take the time if not to busy and exchange thoughts about the current craft craze,expected release dates and upcoming events aswell as pour you a lil taste of something delicious as him or one of the patrons are always opening something good. So if your in Chicagos Humboldt Park neighborhood stop by, you wont regret it... Oh Yeah.. Cheers!

Junior and his staff are amazing. I do 99% of my beer shopping here and can always get hard-to-find beers. Junior is so kind and I find myself many times at his store for an hour just talking beer and everyday life. Also, you will NOT find better prices around than his! Proof is his $29.99 Fifty Fifty Eclipse compared to everywhere else it being $35-40

I will keep this short and sweet. I just have to say, This place is the definition of a diamond in the rough. Couldn't tell from the outside, but this place has a killer selection. The only thing that out weighs it's selection is the man himself, Junior. Seriously one of the nicest guys, and eager to help in anyway he can. Even if their selection sucked, I would prob still go back just to talk to him. I don't live close anymore, but still make a special trip on occasion.

Great owner, generous and very helpful. I was introduced here from my bro-in-law and couldn't have been more impressed with the knowledge of the owner and the selection at hand. If I lived closer to here, I'd be there daily!
It seems the only thing holding them back here is the size of the store front. I'm sure they would love to pack a few more rows of beer into the place but a large portion of the business is fully dedicated to the great craft beer selection. The owner sends out a weekly newsletter updating his new stock and promoting to his regulars the rare and hard to come by new releases as they arrive.
Cheers

Puerto Rico is absolutely the best shop in the city. The owner, Junior, is a very nice and generous man who can guide you to the type of beer you are looking to find. Like others have said, he takes great passion in his selection. The store itself might not be as large as the bigger stores, but Puerto Rico gets pretty much anything they can get and then some. And they are able to sell their items at some of the lowest in the city, unlike other small specialty shops. Plus he always has some good fresh produce if you need that as well!
