A warehouse vibe but filled with bottles Iíd only dreamed of in AZ. Had fun picking some rarities off of the shelf. Had to be mindful of weight as I had a bit if a hike back to the hotel. Not a ton if service availability but that didnít really matter. Great beer selection of Chicago goodies!

Another great Binnyís location in Chicago. The free parking was nice and it was close off the highway. Great selection as expected and I lucked into some stuff from the cellar on my visit. They also had an escalator only for carts from the second level, so of course I had to give that a shot. My first stop will always be LP due to proximity to GI, but this store was great and I would like to come back at a time when their onsite bar is open.

A well stocked store. Decent prices and selection. Bar is nice for an occasional odd brew. I live a couple block away which is great.

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 itís so close to Mannyís and they allow you to bring food in to the bar if you want. Essentially, Binnyís 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 Binnyís 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 doesnít 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 (Iíd 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. Binnyís was a life saver for a beer-hunting tourist like myself. The locationís convenient, the bottle selection plentiful. The staff didnít 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.

Iíve shopped many times at Binnyís 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 Binnyís cardholders here than Iíve 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 didnít 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. Iíll definitely make the trek back here for the greater selection and lower prices than the small Binnyís 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.
