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.

Stopped by during a conference in Downtown Chicago. I actually had exceptional service as opposed to everyone here, I think I was talking to the buyer, he had all the best recommendations for local craft and let me into his secret backstock with solid 3F bombers. Awesome spot!

This is a Binny’s, and as such, they have a massive selection at very fair prices. If you want any help finding anything, good luck flagging anyone down who will be able to help you, unless the actual buyer is there (I forget his name at the moment). They have a good amount of beer also in the cooler, so that is convenient, and if you happen by at the right time, you can find limited releases as well.

Service was crappy, noone gave asked if I needed help after about 25 mins of browsing and couldnt find the ’beer guy’ when I asked. Loved the selection though, not much UK and austrlian stuff but makes up for that with the US stuff. Not a great deal of hard to get beers but plenty of good ones still
