small interior compared to other Binny’s, but extensive selection of midwest bottles, though nearly everything but a few bombers and six-packs are shelved warm. no Three Floyds in stock July 2012.

I was not that impressed with Binny’s. The selection was un-impressive although there were a fair amount of Belgians. The local selection definitely needs work. Several workers passed me by and never spoke.

Holy monkey beer selection here was insane! Tons of Pipeworks, Revolution, Three Floyds, Goose Island. Hard to find stuff all over. Lots of refrigerated things. Easy to peruse the selection. Left here with a least a dozen bottles. Do not come here unless you’re ready to unload some cash.

Decent selection and in walking distance from the downtown core. As stated before, verry cramped beer section, but staff was friendly, if not knowledgeable.

This is the only Binny’s location I have visited. It is a functional bottle shop, though the selection was more limited than I had expected. I was looking for stuff I can’t get in KS/MO and this place only had a few. Picked up some 3F Behemoth, Alpha King and Rabid Rabbit. Also the Alt Bier from Two Brothers. Since I was staying downtown without transport, the fact I could walk to this was really the highlight of the place.

Went to this store after a business presentation. Easy parking next to building. smaller building with well organized shelfs with wine, liquor on the right and three large shelfs of beers on the back lef. Good selection of standard micros in bombers and six packs and good selection of Illinois beers. Found six new beers for me. Party goods, wine and hard liquor store at good prices like the other Binny’s. Chicago BA freindly package store service. Nice location. I will return if downtown.

The beer guy here does a good of communicating through email when new stuff is in. However, the store and selection are small and gone right away. Overall, selection isn’t that great, never see anything that I want besides when special releases come in.

Within walking distance from my downtown hotel, which was a godsend. Staff on the tills were friendly and there was an interesting selection of beer packed into one corner of the store, although with virtually no singles on offer. Would visit again.

I agree overall with the Captain. I've been to the locations in Skokie and Niles; significant differences between the two, such as HOTD and more E. European stuff at one, Fantome and Fullers Vintage (n/a at Sams at the time) at the other. Niles store marginally better. You can't expect to get everything at one shop in Chicago; one of these stores should be high on your list though below Sams overall.
