Decent though not great bottle shop. New local releases of Pipeworks etc. that did not sell out. Lots of national releases. Prices not bad. Virtually 0 service.

Stopped here on our way to Evanston. Typical Binny’s, and that is meant as a compliment, with great selection of regional craft and imports, with some notable hard to find limited releases (thrilled to get a Daliesque). Perhaps my only criticism would be the lighting-- it seemed oddly a bit dim when we were here, but that’s minor really. Oh, and cheerful helpful service!
Close off the highway while I was headed back to Milwaukee so checked it out. Great selection though not quite as big as some other Binny locations. Decent amount of glassware as well. Friendly service, noticed a couple employees out talking with customers which has not been common in my experience at most of the other locations.
Another Binny’s so you know its really solid. Like most burb locations its selection doesn’t run out as quick, tons of local stuff, overflowing with Pipeworks. Had Zombie Killer and B. Nektar so an extra plus in my book.
This Binny’s is right of the 94 and has a nice selection of micros and imports. Very few singles. Also has a ton of good, inexpensive liquor, wine and cigars. Worth a stop if you are in the near north suburbs.
Solid whiskey selection with some to be sampled. Mostly knowledgable staff who can suggest new beers you may like to indulge in. Really solid beer selections. Wish they had more cold micros brews but glad they have what they do.
It is pretty much what you would expect. Has a local flavor to it with a lot of ethnic beers, mostly Polish, but also some Baltic type beers as well. Interesting place to go for some random Euro beers you can’t find at the other locations.
I was very impressed on a recent visit to Chicago. They had a great location for me as it was right next to the Skokie Yellow line station. The selection was tight and quality based with lots of new to me beers. I was pleased with the prices and was checked out quickly when leaving. I had a couple of questions for the staff and they were qucick to get me an answer. The only thing I would like more is if they had some singles.
