Binny's was my last stop out of Chicago en route to 3F and then I-80 West to Omaha. I was running about two hours behind my schedule but I really wanted to stop here. I figured I could squeeze in a twenty minute stop.

Glad I did.

Massive store... I just checked out the beer. There seemed to be tons of wine and spirits as well plus a tasting bar.

The beer selection was excellent, lots of quality Belgian, English and German beers. I looked over the selection; I could get most in Omaha so I moved over to the American craft beer section and found what I was looking for. I picked up a bottle of every DIPA, Imperial Stout, and Barleywine I have never had plus six-packs of GL Dortmunder and Commodore Perry. I dropped $70 on beer. I could have bought more but I had limited car space and I had dropped over twice that at West Lakeview...

If I lived near this Binny's I'd shop here regularly. Some of the beer prices were on par as what I expected, a couple were higher and a few were lower. There were a handful of beers I was looking for, nothing overly rare, but I could find them. Granted I was in a hurry but the half dozen employees standing around didn't ask if I needed anything and the lady at the checkout stand was less than stellar.

Even without any service my visit to Binny's was worth it. Next time I am in Chicago I'll be back. (1,349 characters)

Stopped here while at a conference. Great selection of local craft and all the solid domestic\import bottles. Picked up some Three Floyds and Pipeworks stuff. They really take craft seriously, and pricing is fair enough. Must go to Binny's if in the Chicagoland area. (271 characters)
