One of the absolute best beer stores in Chicago, for sure. When the store owner or one of the employees is always glad to answer any questions you may have over a beer, do tasting events often upon many of my visits here, or even is willing in most cases to substitute a beer not in the create your own 4 or 6 pack area that's in the regular shelving part of this store into a CYO 4 or 6 pack, that means a DARN lot to me how much they'll go out of the way to satisfy their customers.

And the way they do a random ticket raffle for their Goose Island Bourbon County Stout release rather than having to camp out FOREVER late some night and early some morning till a store opens, is another plus. Hope this store never changes a thing, since it is an amazing store as it is! There are some wine and spirits/liqueur options they sell too, but since I don't drink those as often as I do beer, I can't comment on how good those sections are.

Great little bottle shop. Good selection, helpful staff and eclectic offerings that the bigger stores don't stock.
Limited / special releases tend to get held and they do an event / release at a time when more people can make it which is nice too (rather than selling mid week to the truck chasers).

Fair bottle shop. Not the greatest service, but decent selection. Gets picked over quickly.

If you ranked Chicago bottle shops they would be in the 8-16 range.
