Stopped in while on vacation. I have always heard of Binny’s, but had never been to one. I am used to large liquor stores, so I was a little disappointing to walk in and it was a 3rd of the size I was expecting. However, the size of the store did not matter, as the selection and service were well worth the visit. Their beer selection was okay, only a few doors of cold beer, but they had a pretty solid selection of room temp bombers. I found the last bottles of 3 Floyds Moloko and Arctic Panzer Wolf, as well as a Eviltwin DK and Russian River / Sierra Nevada BRUX collab. They did have a mix and match single bottle beer section, which was a bit small, but I did grab a few beers I don’t get in CO. The beers staff offered me help and helped me with the questions I had and the lady at the checkout was also very pleasant. Worth a visit for sure!

When first walking in, you realize that this is a pretty good sized liquor store. There was a ton of wines and liquors from the middle to the left of the store. The beer was the whole right wall and a aisle or two lined up beside it. The selection was very good, most of what I purchased I cannot get anywhere near where I live. Great beer store, selection and quality were among the best.
Easy to find off 59, but the parking is tight. Nice selection of craft brews but living in MN, my main goal was Lost Abbey, which they had plenty of! The singles section was pretty weak and limited. Prices were very reasonable.
I was pretty much overwhelmed when I started looking at the beer selection. I wanted to pick up one of everything. There are several aisles of six-packs, 12-packs, and cases. Then there are two long aisles of singles and 4-packs. Easily 500 different beers. There is a wall of coolers with a decent selection of 6-pack and 12-packs and a small selection of singles. Great place for the beer enthusiast.
Of all the Binny’s I’ve been to, this one probably has the widest selection. They do have a singles 12oz. bin, but it’s kinda crap. Other than that the store is top notch and has just about anything you can find in Illiniois. Highly recommended.
Dropped in after DLD since it was sort of on my way home. I was like a little kid in a candy store for the first time. What a selection. I was in the store for less than a minute before I was asked if I needed some help. The Ass’t Mgr. is very knowledgable about beer and helpful. I only was looking at the beer, but I saw they had cigars also. Definately worth the stop.
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.
