A stop by here because I just picked it out of the phone book or off beeradvocate.

I walked in and found a pretty large warehouse type setting and bypassed all the liquor and wine AND tobacco straight to the beer!! I was kind of short on time but I can honestly say they had hundreds of kinds of beer. Many singles which are unavailable in Iowa. The Belgian section was above average. Prices were lower than Iowa by .50-1.00 a sixer. I was surprised
to see how many locations there are in Chicagoland. I would definitely go back here. They were stocked on Three Floyds, even though the batch of Alpha King was substandard and flat. I was surprised to see even in Chicago area that FFF had to be kept in the back and rationed. There were many other crafts that I did not write down that I can't get in my area. Help was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Overall great selection, but limited compared to some of the other Binny's. I typically go with a list of beers to get (that are currently in-market) and find about half. It's no Lincoln Park, but it's good. That being said, whenever a limited release comes out, Naperville is usually one to get it. The two ladies working the beer section are very knowledgeable about beer and keep up to date with what they have in stock, and love to show you around the give recommendations. I live a mile away and rarely have to travel elsewhere to shop for beer.

This is my go to place when visiting family. Staff has been very helpful and if they don't know the answer they will get another employee to help. We live down state where there are not great places to buy beer. I stock up on items I can't find at home. I usually spend too much money it is beer. Not the biggest Binnys but the first one I went to was Bollingbrook. I was in seventh heaven there. For someone that lives good beer and from the beer desert of west central Illinois this is the place for me.

Was staying in Naperville for work, so took the hotel shuttle over.

Atm- Large strip mall location which looks expansive from the outside, but alas is not as large on the inside. Semi- well lit. A few coolers in the back and most bottles open on the shelves.

Quality- Had a few nice things, but didnt have a lot of quality in the house. Missing some heavy hitters from the local regional markets. Couldve been an off day but I was able to find Boon Marraige Parfait, so didnt have to order online, that was a plus.

Service- Very helpful. Even allowed me to sign up for Binnys savings card, even though not from the area. Helpful on an exchange as well.

Selection- Pretty let down by this one, but did find a couple things that were nice. B.Nektar, New Holland, Boon. Was dissapointed heavily in the mixed 6 packs. Really shitty selection on that.

Food- N/A

This Binny's is in a strip mall. It definitely feels like one of the smaller ones on the inside. The beer selection here is not as expansive as other Binny's. I found that odd.

They did have a nice" discount" rack but the seasonal rack didn't have anything good on it really. They also have the mix 6er. The import selection is really small for a Binny's.

Didn't get any employee contact.

Overall this store isn't the greatest Binny's out there. It is interesting to see that there really are some poorer Binnys out there. This one and the McHenry one seem to have the weakest selection of the ones I have been too. It still is a great selection though.
