This place is OK. They once hooked me up w/ a keg of Two Hearted on short notice which was pretty awesome... This a good store w/ a large and high quality selection. It is way better than average for a beer store. Thing is, unless you happen to be in this exact area for some other reason, there is no reason to go here. If you are taking a trip just to buy beer, you might as well go to the South Loop Binny’s which has a better selection and is overall just plain nicer or the giant Binny’s by GI Clyborn.

Smaller than most of the others. Good midwest and international selection. Found a beer from lebanon...new country tick. Prices are about average from the other binnys but taxes seem higher. Decent stora all around

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.

Stopped by after the GI black friday event on 11.23.12. Was surprised to see that they had parking which was nice considering the location. Selection was solid, but not to the size of most other Binny stores. The highlight of this one is probably the selection of Revolution and Pipeworks beers.

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.
