Yet another Binny's for me to visit.

Like all Binny's it's pretty much a warehouse filled with all the booze you can imagine. The main difference here is the tasting room. That's a nice change of pace for me.

As with all Binny's the selection and quality are good. Never a complaint there. Service is pretty much non existent. Not that I'm every looking for any. My wife and her friend did have trouble finding a specific wine and they had to look for someone to help them.

The main beef with any Illinois beer store is the prices. Prices are always a bit higher and then add on the the completely insane sales tax and you have a perfect storm of shit.

They always have plenty of sour stuff for me to fill my cart with. So I will always stop while south of the border. Just need some soothing ointment for my ass after I check my empty wallet.

Let me start by saying, the parking is absolutely horrible!!! This is one of the worst parking lots I've ever seen!!! That being said, the beer selection is amazing!!! The staff is friendly & they know their beer. But if you're looking for easy parking, best prices & an easy, come-and-go I would look elsewhere.
