I have been going to this Binny’s since it was the flagship Sam’s store, and nothing has changed. They still have a huge, spacious store filled with beer, wine, and spirits (along with a deli section), and the beer selection is quite solid. It does not hurt that they are located right next to Goose Island Clybourn. They may not get some of the smaller offerings that the specialty bottle shops get, but overall their selection is great. Their aisles are filled with nearly everything that is distributed in Chicago, in every price range. They have had some fun events there in the past. The Goose Island Bourbon County Rare release was here, and even though it was freezing outside, the store did a fairly good job of keeping everything in order. The one downside is that with the incredible volume that they get, they will sell out of popular limited releases immediately. But for the regular offerings, I am confident that they will have a full, fresh selection of solid beer.

So here’s the thing: the ambiance is what it is, but the selection in this place is absolutely huge, and generally of a very high quality! Had I lived in Chicago, this would certainly have been my go-to place for beer... with the occasional visits to Beer Temple and Lakeview Liquors.

Huge cavernous booze shop, several aisles of beer plus pretty much all other types of alcohol - there’s a lot of wine in there. I’m not an expert on the local beer scene so it all looked good, although I felt maybe they were missing some of the very best stuff. But kind of hard to knock a selection like this in a physical store.

crossovert  (139) Chicago, Illinois | August 31, 2016
Huge store, maybe the largest selection in the world, though its gone down a bit recently. Mix 6 is always stocked but i rarely find new stuff but that’s me. Prices are good, theres a taproom in it though no samples are offered (even though it would be a good idea since you now people can try something then pick up a bottle if they like it)

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.

Boutip  (96) Gatineau, Quebec | May 12, 2016
This is probably the greatest beer selection in one single place that I have seen in my life. The selection is humongous and classified by country. It is almost to the point where there is too much beers that it makes it hard to figure out what to buy. The tap list at the back has a great selection. Prices are reasonable and there is ample parking.

bytemesis  (1118) Sunnyvale, California | January 4, 2016
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.

Expansive selection. Now a tasting room in back. This is the location across the street from Goose Clybourn, and near Clybourn Red Line Stop. Not too far from Local Option. A must stop if you are from out of town, even just to look at the aisles.

JK  (420) St. Louis Park, Minnesota | December 16, 2015
Located only steps from Goose Island. Possibly the largest liquor store I have ever seen. Aisles of beer, and a fantastic selection of what is currently avai Able. I saw no vintage beers, and prices were a little high. Still, a huge selection. Whiskey and scotch prices were nearly twice the price I would pay in Minneapolis, but their spirit selection was Very large also. Help was offered. I would go back, and Irecommend this store
