Hidden off the beat and path of most of the popular stores at the mall which consumes most of this area this Binny’s has a lesser bulk of craft beer than the others I’ve visited, but I still managed to find 4 beers I hadn’t seen before rather quickly. I will say that the layout of this store makes it the most convenient of all the locations I’ve been to, and the service was great!
While I will still visit Binny’s LP or South Loop mostly, I was surprised by the nice selection of local and midwestern beers available as well has a few under the radar offers from elsewhere. Sure, there is likely little here that is not available at he other locations but it was nice to do a beer run here and not drive into the city since I was just at Hailstorm Brewing, 10 minutes or so away. Oh, the cigar selection was very nice but pricy.
Visited on 7-9-12. Superb selection, with many strong coastal beer brands that aren’t distributed in my native Minnesota. Seemed to be a good representation of local breweries as well. Several rows of shelves of singles and six-packs, as well as multiple fridges of beer. Good, though not great, liquor selection, for what it’s worth. There seemed to be a lot of wine, but I ignored it. Comfortable atmosphere. Layout was a bit haphazard, but I still enjoyed looking through the impressive selection. Surprising dearth of customers while I was there, which was great for me as a browser and customer but probably not so great for the business. Staff left me alone until I asked questions, after which they were helpful, and that’s exactly how I like my service at a liquor store. Surprisingly low prices for the Chicago area; comparable to the prices of the better liquor stores in the Twin Cities metro area.
Pretty solid store for a big chain place. I own a liquor store in a town 5 hours away and have family here so I shop here from time to time. Prices are fair, not great and the selection is pretty good though allotments seem to be low on slightly unexpected items. Though they do carry a ton of regional and local flavor. The new lay out is slightly confusing but I’ll work it out over the holiday season I’m sure. This place is amazing if you’re looking for a great bottle of wine. The floor staff seem to know wine better than beer but are knowledgeable either way.
Nice big store that sells everything you can get your hands on in Illinois. On a recent visit, though, it became clear that their beer volume is not keeping up with the demand. But that’s probably on the breweries as much as anything. This is my go-to store at home, and there is no where else to bother going to in the area.
The people are generally knowledgeable, but not always.
This is a pretty good Binny’s. Really good for new releases, and interesting kind of rare stuff. It’s big, the traffic is terrible, and it’s tucked around in the middle of nowhere. Basically, anything you can get in the chicagoland area will be here. Lots of great stuff, big selection, cool staff.
Damn this place is big...if only you didn’t have to fight Orland Park traffic to get there (yeah, it really does suck). Much cleaner than the avg liquor store gets it high marks on ambiance (really hard to rate liquor stores for ambiance, they’re liquor stores!) Very large beer selection, although most of what they have is not particularly ’rare’. You can find most seasonal FFF and a wide selection of North Coast, DFH, Great Lakes and some imports as well. Got some Founders Bkfst Stout here once as well, but don’t come here looking for any Bell’s thanks to the great state of IL. Biggest detractor is the prices...its a nice, clean store that is taking over the Chicagoland area, and you’re helping to pay for the expansion. Still a worthwhile stop due to the ridiculous number of beers here! Oh yeah, good luck finding singles...its sixers or bombers!

This is one of the better Binny’s. Huge Macro section. A whole 20 foot aisle just for seasonals. Thier beer section is bigger that most places entire store. Not a place to find some thing rare but they do have 90% of the beers distributed in the chicago area.
