Close off the highway while I was headed back to Milwaukee so checked it out. Great selection though not quite as big as some other Binny locations. Decent amount of glassware as well. Friendly service, noticed a couple employees out talking with customers which has not been common in my experience at most of the other locations.

Another Binnyís so you know its really solid. Like most burb locations its selection doesnít run out as quick, tons of local stuff, overflowing with Pipeworks. Had Zombie Killer and B. Nektar so an extra plus in my book.

This Binnyís is right of the 94 and has a nice selection of micros and imports. Very few singles. Also has a ton of good, inexpensive liquor, wine and cigars. Worth a stop if you are in the near north suburbs.

One of the better Binnyís I have been to selection wise. Nice selection of imports and harder to get brews that come to Chicago. No singles selection and kind of an odd set up are only downsides IMO.

Solid whiskey selection with some to be sampled. Mostly knowledgable staff who can suggest new beers you may like to indulge in. Really solid beer selections. Wish they had more cold micros brews but glad they have what they do.

It is pretty much what you would expect. Has a local flavor to it with a lot of ethnic beers, mostly Polish, but also some Baltic type beers as well. Interesting place to go for some random Euro beers you canít find at the other locations.

I was very impressed on a recent visit to Chicago. They had a great location for me as it was right next to the Skokie Yellow line station. The selection was tight and quality based with lots of new to me beers. I was pleased with the prices and was checked out quickly when leaving. I had a couple of questions for the staff and they were qucick to get me an answer. The only thing I would like more is if they had some singles.

This place is awesome and the workers are all more than friendly. There is a manager who is very knowledgeable and always reccomends something good. This place is a must visit. The ambiance and facade is not as good as the selection but itís a liquor store chain and for that itís awesome.

Surprised there is only one review on here and not by someone local. Personally I have been in here half a dozen times (and visited as many Binnys) and theres always something new and interesting. Whether thats an obscure import...limited local bombers...branded glassware...theres always something new. Both import and micro aisles have a deep selection. They tend to carry quite a few of the limited release Allagash...3 Floyds...Two Brothers...Jolly Pumpkin...and many others. The top row of the micro shelf is all bombers and 750s with 6 packs on the bottom 2 or 3. Endcaps have limited seasonal stuff or sale items. Theres a nice little deli counter to the left of the beer coolers if you want to grab something to pair up. Service at the register is always friendly. The lady with braids is always happy and boxes up my beer. The one area they could improve is to put more micros and quality imports in the cooler and have someone on the floor now and then. Generally you have to track down someone if you need help.

Spotted this Binnyís on my way back from Evanston. Typical selection. 6 packs with the majority of the singles being bombers and 750s. I didnít see anything here that I couldnít really get any where else and the selection was just OK.
