Large parking lot in downtown Chicago was a bonus. Big open layout with a very sizable beer selection of domestic and imports. Good variety of 3F but went back the next day for another sixer of Alpha King and they were sold out. Staff very helpful taking the time to give me directions to another of their stores.

This place is fantastic! Exhaustive selection of wine, spirits, cigars, and of course, beer. Found almost everything I wanted and the stuff I didn’t find, I replaced with equally good beer. Worth the visit.

I was quite fortunate to visit the place while they were holding a tasting. Around 15 microbreweriess including Bells, Sierra Nevada, Dark Horse, Great Lakes had reps there and I could sample a few great beers. The selection is quite massive, probably the largest in Chicago, though next time Iíll definitely visit Armanetti to be sure, though not necessarily the cheapest. Themore upscale West lakeview seemed cheaper. nevertheless, Binnyís had lots of stuff that were not at West lakeview, think Issaquah, much more Belgians, more six-packs kind of stuff. The rarities are not in larger quantities though, but I still feel that itís a mandatory complement to West lakeview if visiting Chicago (though again, I need to see Armanetti before being trusted on that)

probably the ultimate liquor store in the chicago land area. at worst, there are a couple whos selection might be able to compete, but not much. this is the spot, espically if you are in the area, you must stop in. you wont be disappointed. they have a large cheese section as well.

I think there is a fair argument for this being the premiere Binnyís. Larger beer selection, larger store, overall a nice shop. The tasting room is key at this location. Pretty great beer store.

Nice place, escalator, bar area, cigars, huge selection of both good wine and beers. Love the location and the parking is excellent. Has all the beers the other binnyís has, didnít notice any beers that werenít at the other locations but then again this place was huge. Will be visiting this place frequently!

Very impressive layout, a large liquor store with a large selection of brews of all types. And the tasting bar is a nice added touch. But it is, after all, a large Binnyís, and I donít mean that to sound like Iím putting down the chain. But with all of their room and all of the beer selections, I saw little beyond the three Malheurs that I couldnít get by stopping at one or two of their other shops. Considering the available distribution of beers, they take few chances. (Take a look at West Lakeview Liquors for a small shop that brings in many quality oddities.) With hope, in the future this large store will rotate in some harder to find beers, interesting ales & lagers beyond the usuals. That said, it is a great place for the beer lover, and I would certainly stop in again if in the area in the future.

This place is a rare treat for beer hounds. The day I was there they had Rodenbach Grand Cru on tap, and Dogfish Head World Wide Stout in the bottle. About 16 unique beers on tap. And you MUST ask for a bottle list. They have many things not found on the list. Add views of the city skyline out the north window and some very attentive service and this is a first class place to have a drink.
Oh almost forgot - best beer selection that I have seen in any Chicago store. About 8 blocks south (and a block west) of Union Station.
