Comparable to the store in Orland... which I guess is a silly thing to say, since it only makes sense to those who’ve been to both. Solid selection as with most Binny’s. Nothing "new" for me except a bottle that I picked up to celebrate National Mead Day this month. Still, I’d stop by if in the area again.
tons of stuff, lots of rotating rarities. seasonals. an early spearheadder of the three floyds movement (with $5 bombers of dreadnaught years ago). you’ll find great stuff here (that’s been well delivered and is not old/stinky) but you’ll also pay for that. kinda tired of this place. sell by the bottle please.

Giant warehouse type store. An alcoholics utopia. The beer selection is pretty huge, though rarely changes. However, I just went there and they had a bunch of new winter beers. In the summer you can get bored pretty easily. The amount of beers seems to be split between domestic and European. They usually have some good micros always in stock, eg. Three Floyds, Victory, Great Lakes, Bells. They even get a fair amount of the "huge" Three Floyds, ie. I’ve found Dark Lord and Behemoth there. Prices on micros are a little steep but macros and wide distributions like Goose Island and Sierra Nevada are always cheap. They have tons of liquor and wine. Bottom line is that they don’t sell by the bottle which is a big problem with me. Who wants to pay $9 a six pack for something they’ve never had before? I think it hurts the enthusiast and their business. People that work here are fucking douche-cocks.
An okay place but nothing special. I worry about the lights in their as it was quite bright. As Eric says below, prices are a little higher than they should be. There weren’t many special selections but I did find a few that I can’t get at other bottle shops in the Milwaukee and Chicago markets. Maybe I’d drop by again if I was in the area, but it wouldn’t be my regular bottle shop of choice.
Schaumburg location-While i was living in Northern Illinois, this was the best place to go for brews besided Madison, WI. This place has it all-vintage, midwest micros, seasonals and very rare imports. The prices are fair, but not cheap by any means. a great beer store!!!
