This Binnys is enormous. Itís probably the best Binnys in the city, yet one of the least attended. As such, it tends to get picked over a little less quickly than some of their other locations. Binnys prices pretty much set the average for the city. This particular location seems to be lacking in service. I donít believe Iíve ever had anyone here offer to help, and the cashiers seem like they might be transplants from the Target a couple doors down. The real gem here is a small bar off to the side where they have tap craft beer, well-made/designed cocktails, and small plates of the artisan meats and cheeses sold on site.

Better than average selection, not the best service, especially in the aisles. This was the Binnyís near my home when I lived in Chicago, and I still visit here. They have a tap room/bar area, and a pretty good selection of imports. The suburban locations have lower prices on imports, and more sales/discounts in general. I tend to only grab rare items at this location, prices are otherwise better elsewhere.

My go to Binnyís. About 2 miles from my house, easy in easy out, good selection and Chris is knowledgeable about both beer and hockey. They also have a tasting room, even though I donít typically get a chance to swing by there when itís open (usually after 5:00pm).

Huge store, certainly not underrated at all as you can tell by the other reviews. I was very impressed by the scotch and champagne selections. Their beer selection was also very respectiable. I wish they had more cold-storage for IPAs. most just sitting around @ room temp. Staff helped me pick out a few bottles of nice scotch. I felt pretty good but yeah, more time would have been nice.

Yes the Lincoln Park location is great and all but after stopping here, I wish we had giving ourselves some more time. I picked up about 6 great selections in about 5 minutes. Warehouse layout with just tons to go throw. I asked the beer manager for a Revolution Deep Wood Series since I didnít see ant out, 1 minute later he returns from the back with a Bean GeneÖ. As other have said they also have a tasting area. Like this place a lot.

I had time on Tuesday morning so headed here to check out a different Binnyís. They have a tasting area/bar but alas it was closed when I went. The ambiance is massive liquor store though smaller/more maze like than the one across from GI Clyborne. Good service from knowledgeable staff plus 9.99 mix 6-packs and a huge selection of stuff. I got a mix-6, a Black Butte XXVI plus a 4-pack of Bellís Two Hearted for about 40$ which is pretty good. Well worth dropping by but next time I am in town I will probably head back to the Lincoln Park branch which I think it a bit better.

Ambiance is a bit scattered untill you find the aisles you are looking for. Service was good, severl people asking if needed help, but didnt feel bothered, guy at register also hooked me up. Selection is pretty dan good, both european and craft stuff. Overall I think I like the lincoln park one a bit better, but still a great bottle shop.

Large store, warehouse style. Friendly staff, great selection. I end up buying 10-12 bottles every time I come through town.

What an awesome place! I would have liked to see more singles, but what a selection! I so would have liked to check out the cheese bar available in the store. I will make it back to this location the next trip to Chicago!
