Default Chicago Craft Beer Stores

Going to be in Chicago the week of the Fourth of July, where can I go to buy GOOD craft beers? What would you recommend I buy that's regional? (besides 3 Floyds)

Binny's is, IMO, the best place to look.

http://www.binnys.com/

Where are you staying?

There is a binnys close to there. I'm right down the road. I'd try half acre. Daisy cutter is a good one. There are some breweries in the city.

Binny's for sure. Though I've never seen 3Floyds there (they have an entire section for it, but it's always empty)

Two Brothers is releasing a bunch of anniversary "artisan" releases, most have been pretty good thus far, definitely worth a try.

Binny's website let's you order online for delivery, and it appeared last night as if some stores had 3 Floyds in stock, and others didn't.

I know at some locations they keep it in back until you ask for it
