Picked up a nice collection of bombers that I can’t get in my home state. They had a nice selection of six packs and a decent selection for the "mix six" as well.

Nice selection. Stopped on a visit to score things I can’t get in my home state. Expensive. Ridiculous taxes. Very helpful if not knowledgeable service.

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.

A pretty good store for downtown Chicago. A short walk from N Michigan Ave, so it’s accessible without a car. A pretty good selection, but they were out of 3 Floyds when I was there. They should allow you to buy single bottles, but you can make a mixed 6 pack.

This Binny’s has a very convenient location for anyone working in the loop. The smaller setup prevents it from having the same selection as some of the more expansive locations, though. This location has recently expanded their beer selection and started offering a "create your own six pack" section, which is a nice feature. They are now able to bring in a wider selection of local craft and interesting import beers. Limited releases disappear from here faster than pretty much anywhere else in the city, so I generally use this store to grab a couple quick hits on the way home or to a party.

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.

Visited while on my trip to chicago. Filled my cart with goodies I can’t get in MI and it cost me just over $100! It was nice not having to pay deposit. The staff was extremely helpful, and I walked around for about 45 minutes. They even hooked me up with a six pack of Zombie Dust! Great spot to stop on your way out of the city with a parking lot!

Visited in October 2011. Nice selection in this centrally located store, though no unusual beers as far as I could see. The store itself was impersonal, but it did not matter. I must say that from a from a Swedish perspective the prices were very low. A 6 PK of Bells Kalamazoo stout was 10.99, in Sweden if lucky I would get two bottles for that price. The service was descent.

Wow, coming from Ontario where all we have is the government-run LCBO, I am blown away by the selection in this place. Rows and rows of great American craft brews, and a good selection of imports. I need to travel south of the border more often.
