Justin Beer Picks

We Listen to Our Customers…

Our craft beer selection is bar none the best around in the Western Suburbs. Thanks for your comments on our ‘Yelp’ page…we appreciate your feedback and welcome your requests!

“This store has a great selection of beers.  The liquor and wine selection is great too.  You can pretty much find whatever your looking for and maybe something new if your feeling adventurous.”                  – Patrick from Chicago

“This place has everything I like, suitable for many price ranges! They get in beers that are hard to find. I was really impressed when I wanted PumKing beer, and they offered to call me when it actually came in, and reserve me some bottles until I was able to stop by— and they actually followed through on that!”                                    – Susanne from LaGrange

HOT! HOT! HOT!

Yes it is obvious August in the Midwest is HOT! HOT! HOT!! But I’m not complaining because I know this will only last until we get blasted with the wind whipping over the lake and I have to wear so many layers of clothes that it really does take at least 15 minutes to unpeel. So what am I drinking you may be asking? Why Rosé my dear! Rosé in the sparkling form and the still. My go to sparkling is this surprisingly refreshing every day value – Jean de James, Crémant de Bordeaux. Made in the traditional method from hand harvested grapes, this wine is pale pink in color with a red berry nose and is perfect as an aperitif. Only $13.99 delivers easy on the wallet but long on taste! My still go to – Italian of course – Dievole Rosato ‘le due arbie’ an IGT from Toscana made from 100% Sangiovese, salmon pink in appearance with peach and citrus fruit on the nose as well as the palate. Refreshing and pleasing. Cheers to hoping that these crisp, fun wines will help ease the heat of summer.When wine is involved, nothing is difficult. Cheers!
