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

Nancy's Wine Picks

Sun, Wind and Wine

That is what I discovered when I recently visited the Santa Lucia Highlands, pronounced Loo-SEE-ah, wine growing region in western Monterey County, California. I was honored to be selected to join 20 sommeliers, wine directors and wine media professionals to dive deep into this small but mighty region. SLH achieved formal American Viticulture Appellation (AVA) recognition in 1991. Since then, it has emerged as the premier cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay growing region on America’s West Coast. The region is planted to 6,400 acres, is 18 miles long and only 1-2 miles wide. There is low rainfall, granite based soils which impart flavor characteristics that are uniquely SLH. Rich, silky and vibrant wines that are delicious at release, and able to go the distance in the cellar.

The four days were filled with meeting these incredible families, tasting their wines in the vineyards and engaging with wine professionals from around the country. The Pisoni and Franscioni families, whose friendship spans three generations and are known for the Pisoni, Garys’, and Rosella’s Vineyards, are legends. Their wines speak of small, limited production, highly rated wines year after year which make these wines sought after. Winemaker Bibiana Gonzálaz Rave, during dinner, was excited for us to visit Caraccioli Cellars, she touted it as THE best California Sparkling wine and I totally agree with her. Through light handed winemaking they achieve elegance, showcasing wines with minimal manipulation, and beginning in 2015 all wines produced were 100% estate coming from Escolle Vineyard.

The Santa Lucia Highlands region produces wines of unique purity, finesse, and a reflection of their origins.  Bibiana says, “What you give to the land and your day-to-day dedication will always be present in the wines you craft.”

When wine is involved, nothing is difficult.
