This is a dangerous beer store. They have a big selection that runs two long isles with a long row of cooler doors behind them. They have a great selection of local and import stuff and they keep getting new things weekly. I usually stop in to see what's new and interesting or to ask about a new release when I hear they are coming out. The staff really now their stuff and it seems like there is always someone in the beer section to help. I think they get a lot of overwhelmed customers looking for "a blue moon type of beer" so they are happy to chat when then meet another beer geek.
They also have a tasting area with 8 taps, I believe, and a lecture series that includes wine producers, brewers and other interesting people with an interest in alcohol. Also grab one of the addicting little hand made caramels at the checkout counter. I typically end up walking out with a box when I only want to go in and just see what's new. (934 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)
