Outstanding selection of beers here at West Lakeview....have been past here many times but took my first trip in there today. Great service, friendly and knowledgable. I should have hung out and asked for more recommendations but I was on a time crunch. Fantastic foreign import options as well as local/national coverage. Chilled out vibe.

A small, neighborhood store with limited variety but packed with many rare beers, Lakeview is the place to go to find weird sh#t! Stuff from Chicagoland like Lake Effect, Pipeworks, Solemn, Spiteful, FFF; bombers galore from Dogfish, Hoppin Frog, FiftyFifty Eclipse, Bruery; beers from Switzerland and Spain; rare Mikkeller and Amager… even Brazilian craft! And fifteen different De Molen, the most I’ve seen in the US. Prices ain’t cheap but why should they for this kind of stuff, and the folks are nice and helpful.

A must in the Chi, along with the nearby Beer Temple.

Stopped in today since I was told it was a must stop by some Chicago people that I've traded with and they were right. Great selection of beers from the area which is what I was looking for while on vacation. Staff was unbelievably helpful and even offered me some Zombie Dust. The male staffer took the time to write out bars/breweries that I should visit while in town. Pretty much my ideal store
