About the owner, tony and the creation of beer shop

I need more than an ordinary grind
Everybody ought to love his job
And live his life and keep his pride

Iggy Pop

After moonlighting at Dublin, CA's Caps and Taps for several months and with the encouragement of my wife Liz, I quit my banking job in San Francisco and moved our family half way across the country to start BeerShop. My hope is to create a space where people can discover what this whole "craft beer phenomenon" is all about. Our focus is Chicago-land's exploding local beer scene. What I don't want BeerShop to be is just a bar, or a snobby place for beer nerds. I want BeerShop to be fun, relaxed and selling great beer from friendly, helpful people.  

Hopefully, we've succeeded. 



Here's what's drinkable.
