This was the first place that I went to and had that "WOW" effect and probably got me into collecting. Several years ago I went and they had a DFH WWS when the distribution was still slow before they expanded their brewery. I almost fell over when I saw it. He said he had special ordered a case for some guy and had some extra. Today WWS is pretty available, but back then it was a find.

This place is still good for unusual finds. The guys are pretty into the craft brew loop and order what people want to buy. Plus its across the street from Hopleaf so its like a Hopleaf "gift shop". My brother and his boss came in from Texas and I took him to Hopleaf. Afterwards, we went across the street and bought some of what we were drinking.

Convenient stop after and evening at the Hopleaf. Not a huge place, but a very nice selection of Chicago brews and other craft beer. Prices seem about average for Chicago. Grabbed a couple of nice bombers.

My wife and I spent a long weekend in Chicago and we were looking for some Zombie Dust,
Hopleaf had it on tap, and then we went to Andresonville Wine & Spirits, and although they
did not have Zombie Dust in stock, they had a great selection of craft beers from all over the
country.

I live in Andersonville and it makes me very happy this store is on the strip. They recently upgraded most of the inside and expanded their beer selection. The prices are a bit high, but get over it, it’s convenience. Did you go to Hopleaf? Stop by to get a night cap for home. Are you going to dine in one of the many BYOB restaurants in Andersonville? Stop here before you go. They have a huge amount of coolers, which besides lots of beer includes chilled white wine and Sake.

Only problem I have with this place is that you are made to feel very uncomfortable the entire time you are in the store. I am a regular customer so it's not as if they don't recognize me yet they have someone standing in the back watching me the entire time I'm in the store.
