This location is very close to work, so it's easy for me. Good selection here, but I wish they had more chilled. Only a select few crafts make it to the fridge area... Unless you are looking for Hard Lemonade, Bud, etc you won't find much cold.

Actual building is pretty cramped and small. Not a big surprise I guess, considering it's River North. I kept bumping into people while navigating the aisles.

I was able to pick up some Flying Dog and Great Lakes when I was there. They accept credit cards, which is great since the liquor store near my place is cash only.

Not much else to say...standard-ish Binnys. (615 characters)

During a recent trip to Chicago, I hit both this location and the flagship in Lincoln Park. This location pales in comparison to the other. much smaller place and not nearly as much selection (at least as far as local breweries). There is a dedicated parking lot, which is a plus for a location in this area. (308 characters)

Selection here is great in terms of quantity and a couple of recent releases were still on the shelves but nothing overly rare or interesting was available when I stopped by. All the locals are represented well as well as many of the better out of state breweries.

The location is fantastic if you are staying in on or near North Michigan Ave. (345 characters)
