I read reviews on here a lot before and/or after I make my purchase but I finally made an account on BA just to say these guys have been my home store for a good long time and for very good reason. The new owner drew is the most kind and helpful individual I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with (not to say that the old owners were bad they were just as awesome, no complaints there). He's honestly passionate about craft beer. We've shared stories over cigarettes about standing in line at breweries and about our favorite experiences with the craft side of beer. Anyway, obviously I highly recommend this store. I mean good luck finding this kind of service at binnys. I'll gladly pay a few extra bucks to support this sterling business. very strict on ID's don't try anything here kids

Some of the beers are a little old, but they get everything!

I'm thoroughly impressed by the fact they keep an accurate inventory up on beermenus. The shop itself is much smaller than big ole Binny's but the staff is very friendly and helpful and their selection is phenomenal for craft beer.

For a long time I've wanted to keep this place a secret; but the words out. Shop here and you won't need to go anywhere else. Ownership is very knowledgeable and friendly, if you're looking for something in particular just ask. Over the past year their craft section has gone from one row of shelves to four, a make your own six-pack section of four coolers, and of course plenty in the main cooler. They carry the widest selection of local breweries in the area, you'll find stuff here that you won't find at that other place. If you haven't been here or stopped by recently, check these guys out.

Outstanding hidden gem in Arlington Heights near 90. The place had an impressive beer inventory outlined on [another beer site] that was maintained very regularly so I wanted to check to see how much they actually had in stock -- I was amazed when everything that I was hoping to find was right on the shelf. Great knowledgeable ownership with exceptional service that was willing to spend the time to discuss beer and make recommendations. Extensive selection of east, west, and midwest breweries. Will only go here to buy beer from now on.

Brand new store in the middle of a strip mall, next to another strip mall with a liquor store in it. Somehow these places just blend into the landscape, a blur of neon and postered windows.

Inside it was very clean with a full wall of cooler doors. Right up front were several doors of craft sixers, mainly midwest staples from Half Acre, Founders, FFF, GLBC, Goose Island, Arcadia, Bells, Tyranena, and other US craft from Left Hand, Sam Adams (Longshot sixers), New Belgium, Stone, Firestone Walker, etc. A case of FFF Brian Boru was sitting on a very sparse warm shelf in the back next to a case of Stone bombers and nothing else. Oddly those were the only craft bombers in the place, wonder if that has to do with Arlington Heights crappy container laws. There was a modest but quality selection here, there's definitely potential.

The clerk at the counter was friendly and sought feedback about the beer selection. He seemed keen on taking requests, so drop in and put in a special order if you're local.
