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

A Brisk Chill is in the Air!

Winter in the Midwest makes us strong. To live in the Midwest, year after year, through many below zero days, with the windchill coming off the lake, makes us a strong community.  We have many memories of each snow storm that we have survived and during that time we hope that our family members and friends get home safely. There are many outdoor activities that we embrace during this cold time of the year. Hockey, skating, skiing, snowboarding, or if its just huddling around the fire, wine can play a strong part in every activity! Celebrations are in the air also, meeting friends that you haven’t seen all year, dinners, family gatherings bringing people together and bubbles to the table. Customers will find a bevy of compelling, delicious Champagnes, many of the current non-vintage releases are based on 2013, a year that, while inconsistent, yielded wines with healthy sugars and terrific balance at a number of top-performing houses.

When wine is involved, nothing is difficult. Cheers!

This article ran in the PUNCH website…happy that Retailers are recognized for their hard work!!
