Now that i don’t work here anymore !
I’ll give you a good incite about this Binny’s. . . Ambiance: Hmmm, a bit fresher look then older binny’s, a good change. . . Service: Depends who you talk to, but overall, pretty damn good. . . Selection: Well, here we go, fucking Illinois. . . . Make a long story short, the Co-Manager who orders the beer, orders everything he can in bulk. . . Food: Great cheeses and meats, Keith knows his beer and can pair beer and cheese in his sleep . . . Value: Well. . . If it’s domestics, don’t buy it unless it’s on sale, otherwise, your not getting a good deal. . . . If it’s on sale, it’s probley a good buy. . . Imports, well. . . if you can come up with a better selection of what you want anyplace around that area besides the Naperville binny’s, then the Value reflects the ability to acquire. . . Overall: Parking BLOWS on the weekends, very small parking lot, but then again, if you get there on a slow day you park right by the door. Good Binny’s better then Naperville.
A fine selection to be found here, though I would have liked to have seen more single bottles in the cooler. The overall selection is very impressive and will certainly get another look. The clearance bin had roughly ten different types of beers, and was happy to find a recent fave among them. No help was provided in the beer section, though the cashier was quite knowledgeable when I asked a question regarding variety packs. Definitely worth another visit.
I live close so I’ve been here a number of times and certainly will go again, but it’s really cluttered, too bright, and, like some other locations, the clearancesingle are past any usefulness. I have found the wine manager to be helpful, but the beer manager doesn’t exist, from my experience. It’s too bad because he or she has put together a nice selection.

this store looks smaller on the outside but inside it is jam packed with a great selection of beer, cheese, and wine. they are always looking to bring more beers in, they just need more help from some of there distributors. the staff is always knowledgeable in every department. a great store to visit and easily drop $200 and make sure you look at every nook and cranny or you might miss out on something.
I was a little concerned about how the selection would be here since the store opened relatively recently and it was a smaller store in size. I was pretty pleasantly surprised by the selection, and I think it is pretty much on par with the Naperville store. Good service and decent prices. I shall return.
Situated in the wide open area of west suburbia, this is a place to stop if you need good beer. Spacious, it has a large selection, honestly at least as large as the new South Loop location. (No, no bar and piano, but little pretention and better service.) And they’re looking at expanding the number of beers. I picked up a few new beers, which always makes me happy. And it was an added kick to meet RateBeerian lovemyipas (aka, Dave) there, working as one of the helpful staff. Definitely a place to stop back at.
Wow less than five minutes from my Chicago house and an absolute mecca for beer. Went in on a Saturday and there were tons of free samples avaiable (especially for beer!). Staff was friendly and helpful. What a great place the selection is amazing!!! I found a bunch of great beers and dropped at least 200 dollars.
