Honestly ... it's great for midwest beers, some cool international stuff, but had to hunt more than I would expect in a tippy-top bottle shop for the absolutely best / crazy hard to find stuff. It's a very good bottle shop, but could stand for better curation / organization and I would say it was more of a standout 10 years ago than it is today.
The best beer selection I have ever seen. They had 6 packs of Hopslam $15 no limit. They also had Surly, Toppling Goliath, 3 Floyds, Alesmith, Epic and many more. Their singles selection was lacking. You have to buy 6 and their variety was not great. Huge place, had the cool thing where your cart has its own escalator. Service was very knowledgeable and helpful. Cheap deals on many exclusive beers. You have to see this place.
This store is a bit out of the way, but holy shit is it worth it. The selection is mindblowing and reminds me of Maruhn. Everyone I asked immediately knew where the beer I was searching for was. So many beers I couldn’t look at them all. The only thing I don’t like that much is that they only have ~half of their selection as singles, the others are six pack or four pack only. The prices are very reasonable. I would recommend the build your own 6 pack for 10 dollars if you are looking for beers to take home. Go here just before your flight home and take as much as you can carry ;)
Big binnys, usually has more obscure offerings in the mix six and in the store in general than other ones in the area, its has a bar which always seems closed when im there, one of the bartenders there is really cool though.
Better than average selection, not the best service, especially in the aisles. This was the Binny’s 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.
