This store has been on beer menus for awhile, and seemed to be one of the better selections on the far north side, almost to Evanston. There was a good selection here, but not much wow factor.

A long corridor leads to the beer shelves, hidden past the coolers, around a corner closer to the registers. Coolers didn't really have much craft, 1-2 doors at most. Further past, there were cases of beer stacked high on the floor, still not much craft. Down the last aisle and to the left there was finally a sizable selection of craft beer. Many sixers, Founders, Floyds, Flying Dog, GL Blackout, Anchor, Bombers from Rev, Firestone, New Belgium (still some Tart Lychee here), Goose...including some interesting taped together package deals. Some seasonals seemed to languish on the shelves though. In a back alcove there were some oddball imports as well, Lomza Mocne, Aris Greek lager, Edelweisse, and 4 obscure Scottish ales.

An older couple was running the store, they asked if I needed any help and were friendly when having a conversation. Overall a good shop in the Rogers Park area.
