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.

I’ve been to the Lincoln Park location, which is awesome - this sucks in comparison, but is still a good stop for beer if you’re in downtown a most cities have shit for bottle shops in their downtown areas, so this was nice to see - the vibe is like a dirty old grocery store (reminds me of the old A&P stores right before they all closed down for good) dropped into a basement - not a lot of cold beer, which kind of sucks if you’re there to take stuff back to your hotel - two aisles of beer, with a lot of local/regional stuff - cashiers had shitty attitudes - decent prices - selection, though, is not nearly as vast as the Lincoln Park location - if you can go to that one, do so.

Nice selection here. Typical liquor store warehouse vibe. Big and full of quantity. I wasn’t too impressed by the beers they had up for mixed 6 packs, but some of the 22s and 750s were very interesting. Even found one Three Floyds beer I haven’t had, which is a definite plus. I’ll be back, and next time it’ll be to transport stuff home.

For me this was the easiest store to access from downtown on foot. Nice selection of singles for a mixed pack but also buckets of other local and worldwide choices. Friendly staff that asked you if you needed help once and then left you alone. Prices were average but the mixed sixer seemed like the best deal.

Bright clean store. Very good selection. Reasonable prices. Plenty of beer on shelves, varieties also refrigerated. Specials and mixer sixer packs for $9.99. Staff was very pleasant. Did not ask any questions.

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.
