I love this place, and maintain that it has just about the best selection of Craft Brews I have seen, ever. Matt Naughton is knowledgeable, and has even sourced some pretty hard to find CB kegs. They are better than Binny's in terms of selection, and don't jack up the prices for rare stuff. If you're anywhere in the Northwest / North / West suburbs or downtown, it's worth the trip: it's even right by the Palatine Metra!

10/06 (several visits since then)

Dobby's is worth a stop if you're in the area. Occasionally they have sales on craft and imports. When I stopped in, a case of Warsteiner was $10.99. Beer section is on the left-hand side of the store...once you swing past the suit of armor and around the checkout gauntlet.

Selection is good, their strong suit being american craft beer. Victory, GLBC, Goose Island reserve line (even singles of these), Avery bombers, Lakefront, DFH, 3F, Left Hand (limited releases), and others. Fall seasonals such as Nosferatu and Kaiser were around, which was nice to see. German and euro import selection is decent, and a few Belgians as well. German and Euro imports are in an odd little alcove, directly left and around the corner from the registers. Noticed a couple Belgian gift-packs with glassware, which was cool. In the coolers, there is a modest selection of import singles, and a walk-in case area around the doorway.

Apparently the selection of wine is decent and well-priced also, according to a family member of mine. Recently dropped by on a saturday afternoon, and there was a beer tasting going on. It felt kinda like an old boys club though. Rodenbach was the "nasty sour one" according to the group. Oh, and there's free popcorn...

Who remembers the giant bottles of Hopf Wei├čer Bock?
