Options for getting a beer from Chicago?

    Went to my brothers navy grad in Great Lakes and while there I had a fabulous local brew. I'd really like to get my hands on it but I don't think it's possible. I contacted the distribution company and they only deal locally not to mention il laws are apparently tough. Just seems so absurd that I can't somehow get a case.

    I'm pretty sure the answer is simply "no" but I'd like to hear it from much smarter people about this stuff than me. Thanks.


    That's the beer. I'd love to be able to show it to my family/friends.

    Set up a trade? Might be hard to trade for a case but I'm sure you can work out something. It's available all over the Chicago area and you can probably offer up locals we don't get here.

    See if West Lakeview Liqours will ship it to you.

    There are always beers out of our distribution ranges that we'd like, but often they're not possible to obtain. Luckily, I bet Archer will ship this to you.
