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.

Fischman's is a gem. Bottle shop and bar with good taps in one location! Sign me up(plus it also helps that I live in the hood). The bar has great events(usually with food trucks). And the shop has a fantastic bottle selection(and they don't gouge ya). And most importantly, they handle special releases the right way.

Last reviews are from 2011?? Wake up beer geeks! This place is a diamond in the rough for craft beer lovers on the NW side. Friendly/knowledgeable staff, and 20+ taps of some really quality stuff. Atmosphere is nothing fancy but you're not here to critique the wallpaper. Add a retail side of the premises with a limited but stellar few rows of beer/wine/spirits; 2013 expansion plans; and events where they'll tap a list of smaller batch brews from a specific brewery or region and you have yourself a winner with this place!

Update: Atmosphere on the rating page is listed as "vibe" in the actual review. Maybe it's just semantics but up'd my review .5 point as I think the place has a solid vibe.

went to this place for the first time on 10/24/11 was really happy with the selection and pricing.

They had all sorts of good stuff including founders breakfast stout, a bunch of 3 floyd's, Brooklyn chocolate stout, two brothers, southern tier & Mikleller.

Kind of located in the middle of nowhere. They also have a bar attached to the liquor store that has all sorts of nice beers on draft. All at very reasonable prices as well.

Anyone who is in the Chicago land area and looking for a really nice craft beer selection I would recommend giving this place a try.

Recently found my Founders Devil Dancer here. Called up for the first time ever and Carlos answered the phone. He was extremely helpful and pleasant and agreed to put the last 4-pack on reserve for me.

When I showed up with my brother-in-law the plan was to run in, grab the beer and pop out, but upon entering I was catch by the big craft beer aisle. I ended up picking up a couple of bombers of Two Brothers Hop Juice, a Stone Ruination and Chocolate Yeti Stout from Great Divide.

When I went to check out Carlos immediately turned around to grab my 4-pack of Founders and then chatted with me for a few minutes about beer. It was an unusually great liquor store experience and I did not expect to find that at Milwaukee and Lawrence.

To top it all off a bar is attached to the store and when we wandered in there ordered a couple Firestone Double Jack IPAs. They were poured in 20oz. Imperial pint glasses and cost a staggeringly low $5 each.

This place is great. Check it out soon.
