With friends living in Old Town, they tell me I need to come pick up some brews for the Halloween party that night. I was currently also on the phone with my cousin and he tells me I have to check out a place called Binny's while I'm in Chicago. Little did I know after getting off the phone with him, my buddy Trevor has Binny's on his agenda for the next place to hit! Coincidence? I think not!

Walking in, it seems this is the grocery store for beer AND wine! over 8 aisles are dedicated to beer alone and this wasn't even the beginning.... They also had over 10 coolers with already fridged beer and then a separate room with cases stacked upon cases of breweries like Three Floyds, Founders, Bells, and many more. Could not beat this selection if you tried!

The staff were either at the checkout lane or at their customer service desk. I wasn't worried about getting any help but they were very friendly when spoken to.

I applied to get a Binny's card and right then knew I was coming back this weekend! Before jumping on my flight, I walked from my friend's apartment to this Binny's again (b/c Goose Island was closed that morning) and picked up multiple brews before heading home. Will be back here when in town and could recommend this to someone who is a wine lover also!

Magnificent selection, you don't find a bunch of beer here that fills up a cart, then quit drinking beer.

Absolutely amazing selection! They must have expanded even further from some of the older reviews. I remember six aisles of beer. Lots of focus on local brews included some FFF if you're there at the right time. Vast selection from across the states and a fairly nice section of Belgian beers as well. There's also a pick six available from single bottles that are likely left over or broken up six packs.

The staff is friendly and very helpful. They may even enjoy watching people go crazy over their beer selection!

It has an industrial feel, that of a large warehouse. Thankfully there's plenty of beer to keep you warm.
