If you want to find rare things in bottles in Chicago, this is where youíll find them. Small shop with extensive worldly collection. Knowledgeable friendly staff. Downside is donít go here expecting to stock up. Usually only two of a given beer on the shelf. Often times 4/6 packs of the good stuff are broken up and sold as singles. Very clean, organized by country of origin. A bit more expensive than some others, but definitely worth a stop. Best overall beer shop in Chicago. Period.

Online order shipping to friend in Virginia. Happy to be able to order singles, and managed to get two new US states from them, and some interesting Gose beers. A tad slow to ship, but box was well packed and everything arrived safely via FedEx.

One of my favorite places to visit in Chicago. Very diverse and obscure collection of beers. Iím constantly finding beers here that Iíve never seen anywhere else. Best selection of Mikkeller Iíve ever seen. Pricing is reasonable on most selections.

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 wasnít 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 itís 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 youíre in town.

This place was awesome!! We walked in saying weíre 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 theyíre number 1... must come here

Smaller than expected on the inside, but Iíll be damned if they donít 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 youíre anywhere close, you definitely need to make a stop here. This was better than all of the Chicago Binnyís locations Iíve 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 havenít seen at several other places in the US. Prices are above average for the area. Service really wasnít that good for a boutique type store. I bought four bottles. It would probably be cool if this place was my local, but it isnít and unless I know they have something I was really looking for I wouldnít return. Really surprised this place is the highest rated bottle shop in the Chicago area, I would check out Lincoln Park Binnyís.
