t0rin0  (1529) Do Not Resuscitate, California | November 15, 2012
Visited numerous times on my two trips to IL in 2010. Conveniently located to Goose Island Clybourn.

Lots of beer to select from. There are a couple of rows and a number of fridge doors dedicated to beer as well as a whole room for cases. It was frustrating that a lot of the beer wasn’t available in singles. One employee explained that it had something to do with state law, which didnt make any sense because there were lots of singles to choose from, just not some of the stuff I was looking to try. Oh well.

The service is attentive and asks if you need help. They are happy to answer any questions that they are able to answer. On my last trip I ran into a character that goes by Vav. Real nice guy that seems to do everything he can to get some good stuff into the store. What I found interesting was that he knew who I was (at least he knew who t0rin0 was).

Prices are reasonable on most things, high on some. Will definitely return if I can get back to Chicago.

Ahhh, Binny’s. The legend preceeds you, how can you ever hope to live up to it? Definitely a large scale modern store. Large parking lot with plenty of spots. Conveniently across the street from Goose Island (more on that in the next review). Huge inside, with a lot of shelf space devoted to beer, loosely organized by region. Tons of selection - this is a store I would love to have locally in California for sure. Solid price throughout. One of many places I found Eclipse bottles back to 2012 hanging out for $32 or less; odd as they get snapped up super fast in the SF bay area. Definitely a place to find some eclectic and odd beers, as well as a wide selection of midwest favorites. Relatively clean and tidy; no boxes scattered about and dusty bottles filling shelves. My primary gripe is the severe shortage of refrigeration space, and consequently the phenomenal number of IPAs, double IPAS, TRIPLE IPAs just sitting around at room temperature. Kinda sad, really. Otherwise, a must visit location.

Binny’s is located in the Clybourn area of downtown Chicago on North Marcey. There is a large parking lot in front of the store, as well as street parking in the immediate area.

The interior is large and well-lit, similar to pretty much any other cavernous liquor store. Maybe a little more sterile looking than Total Wine or Bevmo, but not entirely devoid of character. The beer is toward the left side both on shelves and in coolers around the perimeter. One of the shelves is devoted to mixed sixers.

The bottle selection counts not in the hundreds but apparently in the thousands! Incredible array of breweries are represented, more or less by geography from what I could see. Domestic craft breweries like Revolution, Goose Island, Pipeworks, Half Acre, Lost Abbey and Surly, as well as many imports.

Service is pretty typical for these types of stores. I was asked if I needed help finding anything, and checkout was friendly.

Overall this is a great store to visit in downtown Chicago, and being right across the street from Goose Island is an added bonus.

A warehouse style store with a great selection and fair prices. Staff is overall helpful. One of the better Chicago beer stores.

bhensonb  (582) Woodland, California | October 2, 2009| Updated November 26, 2009
Well, "Binny’s" doesn’t seem to sell beer on the web. Everything I saw was "In Store Only". Looks to be worthless. My rating applied before "Binny’s" took over. Former rating: Web site was a bit behind. Stock is at several locations. But the personal service was just exceptional. Well worth shopping here.

Use to be Sams, wish it still was because beer purchases actually count toward their bonus card. Adam, does a great job stocking lots of new things and keeping the local ones available. The best Binny’s to shop at.

I’ve been a few times here...and this seems to become our go to place Post DLD. Huge store with excellent selection(cold and room). But the best is the tap room, with such a beautiful grand hall style. Not a huge selection but good, and samplers are available. Prices are good....and its next door to GI.

I stopped in here during my one day in Chicago on my way home in Japan and simply WOW! 4000 bottles, over 200 kegs?! Amazing, I had never seen such a good selection. More than anywhere in Montreal or Japan. The service was good and the prices cheap compared to what I am used to. I wish I had a place like this nearby... but then again I would probably go broke!

Stopped in on a Friday early afternoon after hitting up goose island next door. As you walk in, you immediately see the beer selection. There’s probably five or six aisles of beer with coolers on the back wall. The pricing seemed high, but they did give case discounts. I found a bottle I had been looking for for awhile so i grabbed that. The staff all seemed very knowledgeable.

This place is one cavernous, gleamingly clean palace of booze - not only do they have one of the most impressive, well-organized selections of beer I have seen in the midwest, they also have a bar/tasting room inside (with pretty reasonably priced drafts) - you can get a pint of beer and take it with you as you browse the beer and liquor, which is pretty damn cool - as mentioned, the selection is impressive, with a vast collection of local and regional micros, as well as a very impressive import selection - the prices are quite fair, especially considering the fact that this is in the heart of Chicago - a must-stop if in the area.
