Considering the size and location I would consider this a diamond in the rough. Not a great selection per se but I was pleasantly surprised. They had 75, 90, and 120 minute dogfish head as well as a nice selection of founders. The clerk was very helpful and was able to locate a couple single bottles I was looking for.

Closest beer store to O'Hare. This topic comes up now and again, and though this shop may not have the best beer selection, it is decent and the closest to many O'hare hotels. Located on Higgins across from the RAM restaurant. More a stop of convenience than anything else, next closest place is Binnys Des Plaines... 5 miles away with 3 times the selection.
Navigation: Inside and to the left there are 4 cooler doors of import singles, odd eastern euro stuff, Sam Smith, Orval, Lindemans, Rochefort. Further towards the back, the beer shelf is on the left with some other random beers opposite the singles cooler. All the way in the back is mostly sixers, but toward the right corner I did see Dreadnaught bombers. Highlights of the selection: Rochefort, Firestone Walker Double Jack, Big Eddy, Infinitum, Dark Horse, Hop On Top (Sprecher IPA never seen elsewhere), a couple dozen eastern euro beers like Zatec Dark, Zywiec Porter, Perla, Obolon, EB, etc. Founders Centennial and Dirty Bastard, Bells (Oberon, Oarsman), FFF Robert the Bruce & Pride and Joy, and other midwest beers for the business traveler.
Shop itself shows its age and is a bit dingy, some dust on the warm shelves, yet the single bottle purchased from the same shelf was fresh. There was a younger guy helping someone get a case of Polish beer. Older guy at the register was friendly.
Any liquor store with this quote on their website is alright in my book: "A popular drink in Cambodia is a Tarantula Brandy. You guessed it - the concoction includes rice liquor and freshly dead tarantulas..."
