Stopped in on a Monday afternoon to finally check this place out. What it lacks in size, it makes up in service and selection. i didn't see many beers I wouldn't be interested in trying, and got a few suggestions of things I probably would've passed on otherwise due to my unfamiliarity with some of the less hyped Chicago beers. The thing that impressed me most was how dedicated they are to freshness. If the beer wasn't clearly marked with a bottle date, thete was a price sticker that had it on the front of the carrier. Thats definitely going the extra mile for customers/education, pretty awesome.

The Beer Temple is an extremely well curated bottle shop with a focus on stocking fresh beer. It is well known that they will not sell beer that is past its’ prime, which is commendable. This justifies the prices of the products offered, given that you know you are getting premium quality. The owners are knowledgable and friendly and provide a welcome offering for the neighborhood. My only regret is that I don’t live within walking distance, although maybe that is for the best.
