Attention Beer Snobs - Bell's Amber?

Bush/Coors Light drinkers please don't reply...

Does anyone know of a place in the surrounding Chicago area that serves Bell's Amber? I love that shit so much and I've got a craving of PMS proportions...

I'll also settle for the names of places that specialize in craft brews of various kinds...I'm talkin' a place that has a beer BIBLE instead of a beer list...

I will search for the name of the place I went to about two years ago. I bet they have it. It was on the North Side. They had a lot of beers I have never heard of and about 4 different Bell's beer.

Unfortunately they don't have Bell's Amber on tap, but they have it in a bottle. They have Bell's Two-Hearted Ale on tap though.

They happen to have it at the Gaslight as well (Racine and Montana) conveniently located across the street from my apartment!

Sadly, they don't have my real favorite beers (PBR, Kokanee) so I stick to Jack & Diets. Still, if it's Bells you want, Bells they have.

G'ah.

You're thinking of Buy Low Liquors on the North East Corner. It's the Hop Leaf. Lot's of Belgian brew there, one of the few spots to get La Chauffe(sp?)
