t0rin0  (1529) Do Not Resuscitate, California | November 15, 2012
Visited numerous times on my two trips to IL in 2010. Conveniently located to Goose Island Clybourn.

Lots of beer to select from. There are a couple of rows and a number of fridge doors dedicated to beer as well as a whole room for cases. It was frustrating that a lot of the beer wasn’t available in singles. One employee explained that it had something to do with state law, which didnt make any sense because there were lots of singles to choose from, just not some of the stuff I was looking to try. Oh well.

The service is attentive and asks if you need help. They are happy to answer any questions that they are able to answer. On my last trip I ran into a character that goes by Vav. Real nice guy that seems to do everything he can to get some good stuff into the store. What I found interesting was that he knew who I was (at least he knew who t0rin0 was).

Prices are reasonable on most things, high on some. Will definitely return if I can get back to Chicago.

MarcatGSB  (17) Eagle Harbor, Michigan | November 5, 2012
A very large store located just across the street from Goose Island Clybourn... They have a really solid liquor and wine selection to accompany their well laid out beer selection. They have a great variety of styles, with American Craft being the focal point, but plenty of English, Scottish, German and Belgian to choose from. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. It’s a must stop if you are in the area.

Very large store, average beer selection, good prices. I must say I was a bit disappointed, more liquor and wine than beer. Friendly staff, seemed knowledgeable. This was my first visit to the Chicago area but I’m certain there is a better selection somewhere else in the city.

Gueuzedude82  (13) Colorado | October 4, 2012
Visited this place by recommendation from a friend. 3 things: Biggest and best beer selection I’ve ever seen. The beer manager went out of his way to show me around and possessed excellent beer knowledge. He basically gave me the grand tour and talked to me until I was ready to check out. It was clear that even though this is a big corporate company, the beer manager truly cares about what he is doing and put together a masterful selection.

Dropped quite a bit of money here. Very nice selection of the national and regional beers and especially the locals. Mix and match for some, though this may have been its chief weakness. Would like to see more.

EHouse  (20) Boston, Massachusetts | August 12, 2012
Insane selection of beer, however when there are thousands to choose from you never know how long a beer has been sitting out at varying temperatures with fluorescent light... I would say 7 out of 10 beers I’ve purchased here have been oxidized and/or significantly past their prime. Most beer does not age well and those that do aren’t sitting at 50-55 degrees in the dark at Binny’s.

AWISLguy  (80) Wisconsin | July 27, 2012
Huge barn of a warehouse. Super busy on a Friday afternoon, amazingly so - don’t people have jobs? A couple of long aisles of craft stuff from around the country. More depth in west coast brewers than most places I can get to. I had stopped for Pelican IPA as advertized here, but they had discounted it and sold out not long before so the beer guy directed me to O’Fallon 5 day ... not in the same league, I’m thinking (back as Sam’s before the Binny’s buyout)

I am now spoiled by these Binny liquor stores. I was able to get a bunch of Pipeworks that were not at WLVL and they had a ton of DFH. Wish they had a better 6pack builder, instead of $10 for 6 mediocre beers.
