Very solid beer destination. I liked this place although it was hard to get to with local road work in progress (and I bet parking would be a royal pita during on a weekday).
Ambiance was great, but a screaming kid in the beer section was a 15min soiled diaper.
Selection was very thorough, especially around this neighborhood, but certainly regionally than nationally.
Service was topnotch and everything seemed more than reasonably priced.
Sweet break from the regular big box variety liquor store. Definitely worth the extra time to travel there.

This place is great, but concentrate on a lot of obscure European beers. The staff wasn’t interested in helping me, but was pleasant. Small shop but they pack the shelves well.

This place is da bomb. There is a reason this place it’s number 1. Friendliest and most helpful staff ever. The selection is mind numbing. So much quality stuff here. Pricing is very reasonable. Just come here when you’re in town.

This place was awesome!! We walked in saying we’re from perth and in the craft industry and they opened arms immediately. Had an amazing range of threefloyds etc and even opened beers with us the shop. Was a great experience and showed why they’re number 1... must come here

Smaller than expected on the inside, but I’ll be damned if they don’t make the most out of that small space. Excellent assortment of beers, tons of locals but also a great selection of craft imports & non-local options as well. Pretty nice glassware & clothing available for sale as well. If you’re anywhere close, you definitely need to make a stop here. This was better than all of the Chicago Binny’s locations I’ve been to so far.

Pain in the ass with traffic to get to this place from out of town (Wednesday early afternoon). Two dedicated parking spots out back and on street parking, no problem when I went. Smaller selection, descent local selections, some harder to get Belgians, but nothing I haven’t seen at several other places in the US. Prices are above average for the area. Service really wasn’t that good for a boutique type store. I bought four bottles. It would probably be cool if this place was my local, but it isn’t and unless I know they have something I was really looking for I wouldn’t return. Really surprised this place is the highest rated bottle shop in the Chicago area, I would check out Lincoln Park Binny’s.

WLV is definitely a place to stop at if you’re traveling to Chicago, with the city’s best selection of Belgian brews. I think you can find a larger quantity of Belgian’s at Binny’s, but I feel the selection here is better curated, with a real focus considering the small size of the store. They also work well with locals such as Pipeworks, and they are the only place in the city that brings in special domestic breweries such as Jester King. Definitely a place to go to if beer hunting in Chicago.

Stopped by with charule. Definitely worth the trip out there. Value is on par with the rest of the city but they definitely get the harder to get stuff. Selection isn’t huge but it is very well thought out. Definitely worth the trip.
