Another mega-store. Not quite the size and scope as the Kingsbury Ave. flagship, but close.
Missed the opening of the bar by 15 minutes unfortunately, but noticed they have 30 taps with 5 Off Color & Pipeworks.
The bar chairs were well upholstered with backs on the chairs, which seems rare these days.

The beer section is located in the far back corner, past the cheese and the wine bar. There's an L-shaped reach in cooler and several short "aisle" islands in the middle of the floor. Pretty much what you'd expect, some local representation but not a huge amount. Pipeworks, Half Acre, Maplewood, Marz, Off Color, Rev, Goose, etc. Full lines from Deschutes, Allagash, Sierra Nevada. Decent selection of seasonals, including Abrasive and Backwoods Bastard. Long gone are the days when Cantillon used to sit on the shelf at 3300 N Ashland...

Service was nonexistent in the beer aisles. The store has a nice layout and is well organized, hopefully I can get back here to check out the 5 star bar one of these days, but i'm just sad I can't get a beer at Northdown instead.
