One of the largest stores in the Chicagoland area and always worth a stop. Friendly staff and a huge selection of beer are what await you. Good lambic and sour selection from overseas, a great place to pick up new beer, and the free parking is an added bonus. Large cooler selection, frequent tastings on the weekend and a full service bar area with a pretty solid craft and local tap list are big pluses. Dangerous as it’s so close to Manny’s and they allow you to bring food in to the bar if you want. Essentially, Binny’s flagship store and one of their best because of it. Sheer size and amount of beer make this a stop for anyone once. I always come back though due to proximity to job and ease for me. Good.

Visited on Sunday 04/11/12 around 1.30pm. Not too busy, bar at the entrance but we had no time to check this out as we had a train to catch in around an hour. Had chosen this Binny’s as it was the nearest to Union Station (10-15 minutes walk). We ended getting a cab from the forecourt of the garage opposite as our bags weighed a ton ! No one came to offer help whilst shopping but that doesn’t bother me. Good enough choice but no real rareties, plenty of new rates for me however ! 6 pack mixed 12 oz bottles for $10. Again not too many ineresting choices (I’d had the bulk before) but there were a lot of new rates for me and perhaps for a first time visitor to the US. Service at the till was efficient and friendly and one employee packed and boxed our beers whilst the other put them through the till. Decent enough store but a fair distance short of world class!

Easy to find location directly off interstate with parking behind and under the building. Large beverage store with the beer to the right of escalator. Freindly assistant with good knowledge of local brews. Good selection. Went home with everything I was looking for.

I stopped in here while on holiday in Chicago last year. Binny’s was a life saver for a beer-hunting tourist like myself. The location’s convenient, the bottle selection plentiful. The staff didn’t seem too helpful, not that I really tried to interact with them. I was able to get a decent selection of Three Floyds, Half Acre, and Flossmoor Station beers at good prices. No complaints.

I’ve shopped many times at Binny’s in Plainfield, Lincoln Park, and Hyde Park before checking out this large store today. Great selection and decent prices. Parking was easy and free on a weekday afternoon, and the escalators helped, too. I spent $80 including tax for 4 bombers and 3 six packs, including some I had never seen anywhere else. There were many more items with reduced prices to Binny’s cardholders here than I’ve seen at their other stores.I spotted perhaps my all=time favorite Schneider Aventinus Weisen Eisbock and had to wait a while before finding an employee to ask if they had any other Eisbocks in stock. He didn’t know what I was talking about, but said that a beer expert from downstairs would help me. Finally an idle cashier came over and asked if she could help. She typed "Eisbock" into their system and found 4 others, only one of which was in stock. She went right to the cooler and handed it to me. I bought it even though it was Red Hook ESB and not an Eisbock. I’ll definitely make the trek back here for the greater selection and lower prices than the small Binny’s in Hyde Park.

Good beer at a great location inside a beer store who could ask for anything else.

Outstanding selection, including foreign beers and especially Belgians. The selection does seem to be especially thoughtful, more a stocking of all the greatest hits, but still, a great resource.

Good selection, fair price. Parking can be a pain at times. Better selection than the Lincoln Park Binnys. Which you could walk around and drink though. Bar is very nice when it is open.

huge beer selection here, a bit intimidated at first, by the far the best Binny’s in Chicago with not only a ton of beer, but things that are not at the other stores... a bit too far away from me to go to often but worth the trip
