New(er) location, first time i've been in to the 2nd bigger location. Beer aisle is pretty expansive, and there's an overflow area in the back corner, where they had a couple of fresh cases of Festina Peche. This was the only store in the vicinity that had any, oddly enough. Beer aisle was opposite the coolers along the back wall. An employee offered help, and was on the floor if customers needed anything.

Selection was much improved from the last location in 2009. Bombers and 750's lined the top shelf, with 4/6 packs below. Full lines from most breweries. Lots of Revolution, Deschutes (got the last Fresh Squeezed), Founders, Bells, DFH, FFF, Metro, Tyranena, Hoppin Frog, and more. Not quite an exhaustive selection as Binny's, but a pretty big one, probably the best in Joliet.

Stopped in today, it was located 5+ minutes off I-55, past the airport. Beer was in the back, one aisle opposite the coolers.

Not much craft available cold, but plenty on the shelves. Lots of singles and bombers, pretty much on par for the Chicagoland area. Nothing too limited or rare to be found, but they did have the usual craft seasonals like SN Celebration. Sadly there was still some SN Harvest languishing on the shelf. They had the Belgian/German/Euro standards, nothing too out of the ordinary (Chimay/Duvel/Delirium for Belgians). A large neon green sign under the DFH 120 "20% ABV!!!" Founders, Goose, 3 Floyds, midwest craft staples. So why weren't they stored in the cooler? 3/4 of the coolers were devoted to macro/malternatives/etc. There was one skimpy cooler door of craft singles, mix a six for $9.99.

The guy at the register was nice enough, they seemed more transfixed on the pro-wrestling matches playing on TV. Not a destination, more of a convenient stop for locals.
