2009 Yet another edit: What can I say, I love Honey 1...they have 3F for $1-2 cheaper than elsewhere, plus Christian Moerlein Over-The-Rhine Ale...wtf?? Never seen this anywhere else... really a surprising selection here now.

Edit 2008: Ok, my original review was a little harsh...i've been around the area for a few years, and for the longest time, Danny's was a cheap dive store. It seems they have cleaned up a bit, and expanded some, including some new French beers from Les Brasseurs De Gayant. Not really a destination, but convenient for area BYO places.

2007 review:
For no reason should this be considered a beer destination. It's a corner liquor store adjacent to a tap room pouring Old Style and MGD.

The primary reason for setting foot in this establishment would be to get some beer to take to nearby BYO restaurants: Honey 1 BBQ or Thai Eatery. They have the typical staples like SNPA and Goose Island. Also Unibroue and Ommegang. They were one of the last places to score Bells before they left the market, but that is old news.

Dusty shelves, kind of dingy overall, stick to the coolers for fresher beer.

Cash only at Danny's Buy Low, the nearest Chase ATM is on Milwaukee at Armitage. In house ATM has extra charges.

This person needs 3 or more reviews on the site for their scores to start counting.

This place was just revamped and is now in the top 10 liquor stores in Chicago in terms of beer selection.
Besides the entire Ommegang line, they have 3 Floyds, Brooklyn, Victory, Avery, Flying Dog, Rogue, New Belgium, Blue Point, Sierra, a number of the more common Belgians, and many others.

You're not going to find anything that you can't get at Sam's, Binnys or WLV, but you might find it for cheaper.
Most things seem to be anywhere from 50 cents to a couple bucks cheaper than typical Chicago prices.
