This place is worth a stop if you are in the area...

A typical warehouse-style store, craft beer is in the aisle right of center, and in the back coolers toward the center and left side. No assistance was offered on my visit, checkout was ok.

Selection seemed to have emphasis on US craft brews, quite a few representing CO and CA. They had Victory, which I was looking for, some fall/spring seasonals even. Supply of these had run out awhile back in Chicago, which made me glad to see them here, even though they were last year's batch. Some German and euro imports present, plus a few nice Belgians. Nothing too rare or remarkable though.

Overall, this is an above average place to find quality craft beer. There's a second location at 7533 W. Roosevelt Rd.

Def a large liquor and wine store. I see that the last review on this store was awhile ago and i would have to agree about the selection. But something must have happened at this location because there seems to be new beers coming in weekly. Maybe under new management? I found kbs there for 20.99 and there was no bs reserve like binnys. Selection is extensive now..beers from ska,rockies,dark horse,reaper ales,lagunitas,tyranena,etc.. plus other typical midwest beers..bells,founders,,fff, new holland..etc.. Yeah some dusty bottles, but what store doesnt? I say stop by this store and check it out again. Just my 2 cents

Large liquor store. Extensive wine selection, including cheeses and other gourmet items. Beer selection unfortunately isn't quite as impressive, but generally is quite good. Three Floyd's, Two Brothers, Sierra Nevada, Arcadia, New Holland, Dogfish, Anchor, Great Lakes, and Boulder Brewing always seem to be in-stock, but check your bottles to see how long something's been on the shelf. Prices are decent - not too expensive, but don't expect to find any deals here either. Really the only good beer store near the Oak Park/Forest Park area - a much better selection than the Binny's on North Ave in Elmwood Park, and much friendlier staff. The place is generally clean and looks good, and the staff's pretty friendly, but don't ask for recommendations or anything along those lines.
