I am at the Orland Binny's pretty often, and have never really been dissapointed.Good selection, friendly beer guy,( Jeff) and plenty of limited releases(often with a list however), and a 1-2 bottle limit per customer. Prices seem fair, sometimes 1-2$ more than normal but hey, it's a Binny's.

I do appreciate the Emails updating me on new arrivals, as it saves gas because i know i wont be making a trip for nothing. All in all, a very good beer store with plenty to choose from. Worth a stop if you are passing through the area.

This is my go to craft beer store. I can't say enough good things about the manager and this store in general.

I have been in a bunch of Binny's locations and Orland Park is set up very well. There is plenty of room without ever feeling crowded. On busy days it is well crowded but never where I feel like I can't browse in comfort. The craft beer is set up perfectly with an area for new arrivals, country of origin, ect. I have been asked by the staff every visit if I need help with anything. When there are more than one employee in the beer department I will get asked by each of them if I need help. If I do they are more than willing to help and research something for me if need be. I have heard on many occasions employees helping people with craft beer suggestions that don't seem to know what or how to ask but the employees are patient and polite.

The selection is awesome at Orland Park. Now if you are looking for super limited things you more than likely won't find it only because of supply and demand. Craft beer drinkers know that Binny's will get the limited stuff and it won't last long on the shelf, if it even makes it to the shelves. I live an equal distance from this location and another location but I would choose Orland Park every time.

Very solid and reliable selection of domestic microbrews as well as desirable imports (most of the Belgian staples). Doesn't get many of the special release beers unless they are very local. One full aisle of domestic 6 packs, one for bombers a 15x15 area of the floor for sale items (all micro) and another full aisle for the good imports. You can also find stuff in the cooler that aren't on the shelves so you need to look at everything. The staff is mildly helpful but not overly knowledgeable or up on current beers or releases. The prices are in line with the averages with the other stores in the area as it is a chain. The selection stands above all.

This used to be a go to place for me whenever we had to head to Orland-- my parents and my inlaws live in town and a stop here made dealing with them MUCH easier.
It is sad that Mario is no longer the beer guy. He was great: friendly and knowledgeable with a love for sour beers. He made sure to order whatever Cantillon beers he could get his hands on. This was also the only store where I have seen the Hannsen's lambic beers including the experimental line up. Andrew, one of the newer beer guys, is pretty good to chat with too.

The selection is similar tokay of the other Binny's stores-- lots and lots of good stuff. This isn't the best place to grab limited releases because of how busy they are-- beers like KBS had a "waiting list" that ended with each person getting 1 or 2 bottles.

The prices are fair. If you buy something on sale, it's a great price. If you are am educated consumer, then you should be able to avoid the wildly overpriced beers.

The store is less than 10 minutes off I-80, so it makes for a decent place to stop if you're driving through IL.
Sorry guys-- no Half Acres yet.

Binny's OP, the 4th Binny's I've been too, and probably the worst. First of all its incredibly difficult to find, at the back of a big mall, not at all easy to find based on an addresss...The beer department is big but spread out way to much and not organized well at all. There are about 6 rows of beer, with no rhyme or reason. They do say imports or domestic but that's not a help. They have sixers together but the bottles are everywhere. There was 3fff on one row then some more 2 rows over that makes no sense, same with Bruery beers...The quality was ok nothing special, although I did snag a bottle of Artic Panzer Wolf and coton. Service was ok, I was there 20 minutes didn't have any ask for help until I was leaving...Overall, nothing special there and totally disorganized.

I've been here several times but am just now getting around to a review.

This one was kind of strange upon entering. The first thing they did was demand an ID, something I've never encountered in any other Binny's, or any other liquor stores for that matter. With that aside the place is pretty standard, but not as good as the other Binny's I've been to. There's six packs of imports in one aisle, bombers of American craft in one aisle, then some import single bottles in another, then some six packs of American crafts in another. Not much in the way of service there, though that doesn't really concern me much. I've seen someone ask for advice from a guy that worked there and he seemed knowledgeable and offered some solid advice. This one doesn't have the best selection of all Binny's but it's still very good compared to the stores around here. I have always been impressed by Binny's, so if you happen to be in the area then this place is definitely worth a stop, there's bound to be something you will want.

This is the place I go when I'm not sure what I want and I just want to browse. Very good selection. The prices are ok. Some of the staff is pretty knowlegdeable, but it's kind of hit or miss. They're supposed to have a beer email list that I signed up for, but I haven't received anything yet.

They also sell cheeses and cigars.

The best thing about this place is that they have periodic tasting events, and not just for beer either. The beer tasting I went to last year ($15) was one of the most fun ones I've gone to.

Binny's of Orland has an expansive selection. Not going to get cheap prices but you will definitly find beers you were seeking. The workers at this location are knowledgable and helpful. They are always asking if they can help. I enjoy this stores selection of German Ales and American Microbrews. They also carry local breweries beers (such as Flossmor Stations).

The shelves are labeled with BeerAdvocate ratings to help you remember beers you were seeking.

Binny's selection and helpful workers make this one of my favorite stores.

Not a bargain type of place, but the selection is basically unbeatable. I like the service at this place mostly because they actually have knowledgeable employees. I drink enough beer (and pay attention to it) to know a fair amount, but they can still answer my questions and point me in the right direction.

It's one of the few places that can surprise me with beers I hadn't thought existed.

I've never gotten skunky, bad, old, or otherwise questionable beers from these guys.

The one downfall, that I can barely even believe, is that they don't have any Alesmith brews -- the one time I had set out looking for it!

As everyone said, very large place. It's all about the selection here. You're going here to find anything and everything.

Has an excellent selection of beer bombers, imports, etc, etc, though seemed oddly light on rum varieties.

There is wine out the wazoo in the place. That's the only way to say it.

They also sell gourmet deli food, cigars, etc.

The staff is always patrolling, though they don't seem ALL that knowledgeable. I guess they could be worse.

The prices can be both bad and good. Some of the American microbrews can be a very decent deal if you're a Binny's member, etc. Like 9.99 for a 12 pack of Sam Adams, that sort of thing. Damn decent.

I live about 25 minutes from this store and visit it at least 1-2 times per month.

This store is located in a small mall area in Orland Park, between a Kohl's and a Marshall's store. The parking lot is huge and provides easy access.

Inside, this place features 5-6 aisles of beers and two cooler sections. The selection is very good, with notable beers from all the best American craft breweries (those available in Illinois that is) as well as significant offerings from Great Britain, Belgium, and Germany.

Prices are a few cents higher than other places I shop, but still within the bounds of fairness and reason. The staff are extremely knowledgable and quick to help with locating an item or shooting the breeze about what beers are out and which ones are arriving soon.

Overall I highly recomend this Binny's as an excellent beer destination in the southwest Chicago 'burbs.
