It’s not every day that I walk into a beer store to find them sampling out Dark Lord. Actually, it’s not every day that I walk into a beer store, period, but with the recent explosion of craft beer in Chicago, the Beer Temple is actually the second beer store to open in just a few months (the first, Bottles and Cans, is located at 4109 N. Lincoln). I first noticed the sign at California and Belmont a few weeks ago, and stopped in to take a look on Monday, the second day they were open. Apparently Sunday was really the day to be there, because I noticed an empty bottle of Westvleteren XII on the counter, which owner Chris Quinn said he’d been offering samples of on opening day (the Dark Lord had been out then too, but that lasted until the next day).
