Gotta agree with crosovert below...
The new liquor barn to me was amazing. Huge selection of imported beers as was expected from my prior visit to the original barn...except displayed differently. If you do want a case of something just ask one of the employees.
HUGE domestic craft selection...had to be at least 50 feet of craft.
As always I have been very happily greeted with the staff, without them breathing down my neck. Most of the managers did have a good idea of rare releases and even offered to put a bottle or two on the side of KBS for me when I came in. A personal touch is always nice like I received.
Definetly will be coming back here.

This is similar in selection to the original liquor barn, but in a much cleaner, more streamlined fashion. It seems like the stuff isn't as picked over here as much, maybe because it is newer. A ton of eastern European stuff as expected.
The beer manager is a helpful guy who knew quite a bit about the distribution of certain beers and he was definitely on top of it.
The prices seemed maybe a tad higher than the other Liquor Barn but they are extremely reasonable in my opinion for the Chicago area in general.
The experience was overall pretty good, I think I like the other one better just for the charm but this is a solid store that is an alternative to Binny's.
And for seekers of Kvass the market right next to it has 4-5 varieties.
