Just found out this place was less than a mile from my house. Thanks beer menus. They had a great selection and lots of good locals that I couldn't find other places. This bodega is two isles long with one being dedicated to craft beer, and the other to food. The cooler doors run along side the far wall but there is lots of warm beer, a good mix of local stuff and some imports.

If you can find something ask, the owner is a great guy and know beer but he doesn't have room for all the good beer he gets so some stuff is behind the counter till he gets room.

If you live in the neighborhood, this is a "must stop" place or if you live on the westside and are looking for brews that sell out fast this is a good place to stop. Check beermenus as he updates it with each new shipment.

I'd like to keep this place all to myself but the owner is so cool that I really want to see his business take off.

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).
