Stopped in over the weekend, the area literally felt like the Eastside's ass-end, practically in Cottage Grove (wait... WI not IL, BIG difference). Wedged in an office building on a corner, with "10 minute parking" spots out front (empty lot).
Walked in and said hello to the college guy at the counter, who remained silent. Did the slow walkthrough of the coolers, most of the beer is cold (quality points), and there was a lone shelf in the back, obscured halfway up by cases of wine stacked in front of it. I found a few NB Lips of Faith bombers behind the wine cases. Asked the guy about NG Berliner, which he knew nothing about and gave the standard "maybe next week" line. That's ok, we found cases at Woodmans, stacked deep.
Selection is good but modest, nothing obscure past the usual midwest seasonals. The one exception being a Great Dane black barleywine bomber that was a little too pricey for what it was (around $14, trying to King Henry in 2013). Founders, Bells, a couple FFF sixers, Ale Asylum, Lake Louie, etc.
Woodmans is 3-ish miles away, on the Eastside there's Jenny St., Star, and Trixies, which all have more to offer. Not worth the 5 mile detour off the highway for. It is near a Great Dane satellite location if you're already heading there.

I have the luxury of having this store just down the road from me and it was a joyous day when a friend told me to stop by this place. They very recently increased their bomber selection (which was much needed) and it has instantly become one of my favorite liquor stores in the entire town.
Management of this store is absolutely out of this world and they are always willing to lend a hand when you need it, make recommendations, or show me what is new.
