I will preface this by stating I have a bit of a chip on my shoulder with this place, but will try to review it objectively versus subjectively. I called and asked TWICE to make sure they still had 2010 Juliet. The person put me on hold, “went to the back to check” and told me they did have it. Over an hour and fifteen minute round trip later I found out they most certainly did NOT have it.

The atmosphere was good. Walked in, people were milling about, the little coffee/beer bar had a few people, etc. The service was pretty good. No one asked me if I needed anything but once I asked one of the [cute] girls working there she went above and beyond to try and help me. She called the beer person on her cell phone to see if they had the Juliet (the beer person was in a meeting across the street?). The selection was okay. It did have some good stuff but nothing blew me away (except if they had the damn 3 sisters or at least Juliet!). Prices were on par with the area. I will for sure not drive all the way here again, but would stop by if I randomly was in the area.

The place officially opens this friday, but walked in during a soft open specifically to see if the sell beer, and they had an impressive selection, most of it midwestern beers but a good mix. They had different 6ers of three floyds, bell's lagunitas etc. The shop is clearly all about quality and the women i spoke to was extremely helpful. Especially convenient for me since its right off the downers grove the train stop. They also had a large wine and cheese selection if you looking for cheese to pair with your beers.
