We're passing through town to get a flight out of O'hare. Bartender takes me aside and asks if I'd be interested in meeting a gentleman across the room who has my exact name, first, middle, and last. Why not? Turns out he's a Chicago police officer. He shows me his drivers license to show me his three names really are the same as mine. And I see he has the same birthday as my wife, who's standing there with me. Not just the same birthday. Same year, too. My wife is standing there shaking his hand when I guffaw about the birthday situation. She's floored. While it might not be unusual to meet someone with the same month & day as you. But the birth year, also? And the same exact name as you husband? What are the f-ing odds?!

All in all, I was also totally pleased to drink one goblet of Bell's Expedition Stout and one of Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree.

This is a small little store front but it packs a great deal of good beer into that space. I really liked all the local gems as well as a good solid number of craft brews from around the states and some good uncommon beers from Europe. I will be back.

Stopped in the beer store to buy some local goodies, and I was blown away by the massive selection, especially the bombers. Plenty of Pipeworks, Transient, 3F, and so many other local breweries that are putting out some unique and quality stuff. The store clerk was very helpful in showing me everything that I was looking for and then some. Unassuming on the outside, beer nirvana on the insdie. Highly Recommend!

Love this place, anytime I'm in the area I make stop...grab a beer, and check out the liquor store next door.

Always doing tap takeovers and have an amazing event for an amazing cause (Kegs for Kidneys).

Highly recommend making a stop and if you're hungry, usually some food trucks on the weekends or you can walk a half a block to La Estrella Taqueria, which has some awesome Mexican food.

Amazing selection of bottles. They were the 1st real bottle shop I ever went to & I still haven't found a better place. My first time there was great cause the staff knew I knew nothing about craft beer but they seemed excited about imparting a little bit of knowledge on a new beer enthusiast. I like to stop by at least once every few months and I never fail to find a few unexpected gems. Chicago has a lot of great bottle shops but few have such a great selection combined with a staff like Fischman's.
