Stopped at this Armanettis store to check it out today, and found it to be a quality stop for beer. It was a high-ceilinged warehouse type place, cooler doors running on the left hand wall, with a long aisle of beer facing the coolers. It was brightly lit, clean, with no dusty bottles to speak of.

Noticed the fresh Flossmoor IPA bombers first thing, also Jolly Pumpkin, Founders, several Goose Is. reserve series bombers. Noticed the Crown Valley line, and about 6-8 different craft cans like Ska, Southern Star, and Paddy Pale from a local brewpub. Imports were further back on the next section of the aisle, and seemed to be a bit more general in scope. Weihenstephaner, Celebrator, Chimay, Duchesse, Petrus Aged Pale, and others. Toward the back there were some truly odd Euro import bottles like "Before-After Triple Bock" a 12% Lithuanian Doppelbock, Viru (flower vase bottle), and "Fat Dragon", among others.

There was a good amount of craft in the coolers, but it would be nice to see more space devoted, given the large amount of space they have. I noticed the windows were slightly tinted to block UV rays. The cashier was friendly, and mentioned they just had a Mexican beer tasting with a mariachi band and tacos. They also have hosted BA's here at past tasting events, so extra points there.

Overall a good place to find craft beer in an area where there's not much else.
