Went here yesterday for the 1rst time. It’s a very nice clean store with a helpful staff and a great selection. Nothing crazy special aside from Pipeworks. Worth stopping by if you in the area, say eating lunch across the street at Goose Island.

Time to refresh my rating now that they have split out Sam’s. With the changes came a big difference overall. The beers that are being brought in are pretty much the best in the area and the beer section is very substantial and runs the pretty standard price structure. Great location and selection, not much more needs to be said. Just wish they had a tasting room here as well...

My other ratings were on Sam’s (the old place), so here it goes. This is second best to South Loop Binny’s (Taproom, Cigar selection and Size wise) but a close 2nd because of Adam (Vav) the beer manager there, he manages this beer madness like no other, with constant updates on this site, the other site and twitter, he also holds special events, such as beer releases. The selection is great and the special release bottle atollment to this place is one of the best. Located right across the street from Goose Island Clyborn, this is a must for anyone visiting GI.

I have been going to this Binny’s since it was the flagship Sam’s store, and nothing has changed. They still have a huge, spacious store filled with beer, wine, and spirits (along with a deli section), and the beer selection is quite solid. It does not hurt that they are located right next to Goose Island Clybourn. They may not get some of the smaller offerings that the specialty bottle shops get, but overall their selection is great. Their aisles are filled with nearly everything that is distributed in Chicago, in every price range. They have had some fun events there in the past. The Goose Island Bourbon County Rare release was here, and even though it was freezing outside, the store did a fairly good job of keeping everything in order. The one downside is that with the incredible volume that they get, they will sell out of popular limited releases immediately. But for the regular offerings, I am confident that they will have a full, fresh selection of solid beer.

This is one of the best beer stores I have ever walked into. The selection is pretty massive. The lighting is pretty good. There is a guy who works there who will tell you exactly how old any given beer is. Everything is very clean. The prices are good (some things are more expensive than my favorite beerstore NBD is NYC). The selection of German and Eastern European beers is excellent (although I have seen a little better in regards to Eastern Europe). The Belgian selection is nothing short of massive. De Molen, Evil Twin, Mikkeller oh my! I didn’t want to stay there too long, because I would have purchased far too much stuff. I spent about 50 bucks there already.

dinkle50  (80) Chicago, Illinois | January 7, 2012
Overall I like Binny’s quite a bit. Huge selection of room temp & cold beer. They usually have something I’ve never seen before. The only drawback is the staff can be a little less than desired, but most of the time the service is ok. This is a very busy store, so it can be hard to track down somebody if you need help. The selection makes up for that though.

ryanfolty  (229) Bourbon County, Minnesota | December 28, 2011| Updated December 30, 2012
Today was my second time here and it was as I remember. Huge store with tons of great brews. No service to speak of, so my 5 out of 10 may be generous. Saw a few employees, looked a couple right in the eye and they just walked right on by. Haven’t had that issue at the other Binny’s I have visited. Nice location as it is behind GI Clybourn so grab a bite and brew there before walking over. Prices are very good and selection is fantastic, so stop in but expect self-service. Have visited a couple times since rating and bumped service to a 7 since it was much better. Love the GI and Binny combo when I am in town visiting!

Shopping-market feel, so much beer and liquor everywhere. Awesome organization, fair prices (some cheaper there than locals), helpful, non-aggressive service, enough check out lines to keep it flowing smooth. Nothing over-the top in rarity, extensive but standard lambic selection.

bruwery  (21) Lowell, Michigan | November 16, 2011
Huge store, amazing selection. They also have a huge wine selection and some gourmet type food, as I recall. Resulantly, the sheer size of the place kind of gives it an impersonal, grocery store type of feel. Regardless, I’ll be back. Somewhat surprisingly, given the huge inventory, I didn’t notice any dusty bottles. Given that, and the fact that they were actually sold out of the beer I went in there specifically to find (not a rare or one-off beer, either) it appears that the stock rotates well. It wouldn’t be hard to kill an hour in here just browsing all the beer.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon in October 2011. What a huge and clean place and what a selection! I saw many beers from Mikkeller and Nogne, but of course I bought mostly American beers. I wish we had Beer Stores like this in Sweden. A must visit when in Chicago. The location was very close to Goose Island, around 10 minutes with Metro from downtown Chicago.

wedgie9  (34) Nashville, Tennessee | August 24, 2011
This is currently my favorite Binny’s store. They have absolutely everything you could want, and they actually sell a good amount of everything, so there isn’t much of a chance of finding old IPA’s or other beers past their prime (which, in Chicago, is very important due to the fact that breweries like Three Floyds have no bottle dating system in place). Adam is super helpful, and loves to chat beer, and with all Binny’s, the prices are as good as you will find in the city.
