I have been to a few Binny's in my travels through Chicago in the last few years, and I have to say this one has the best beer selection I have come across. I'm not surprised, being right next to Goose Island Clybourn.

The four rows of bombers/6 packs/and C&C 750's was very impressive. I spent two separate occasions scouring the selection. With that being said, I didn't find anything that was very surprising for me. Sure they had Angels Share from Lost Abbey, and some other interesting brews, but it seems as though it gets picked over quite often. Their KBS allotment of one case was gone in an hour and a half. So they get some traffic.

On a side note, their whiskey selection is top notch. Not as good as the South Loop Binny's, but pretty close, and great prices. They still have some of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, and some rare hard to find Lagavulin 12 year. Worth a stop. (897 characters)

Love the location across from Goose Island. Best beer selection I've seen so far in the US. My fellow Texans may disown me, but this place puts Spec's to shame. Knowledgeable and friendly beer staff. Great Belgian selection. Basically too much to choose from in the four or five long beer aisles. Then I discovered the bar on the other side of the store. Awesome interior and lighting. Too bad it closes (along with the store) way too early (9 PM). (448 characters)

This place is incredible. It's a one stop shop everytime I head into Chicago. If you are renting a vehicle for your trip to chicago, rent a van or a truck. Consider yourself warned! You will wish you had when you are trying to cram all those goodies into a small trunk. Super store with a fantastic selection. (309 characters)

First, they have a devoted parking lot, so no worries about parking. I'm from Michigan, so plenty of selection from breweries that don't distribute to my area. I was able to get a couple cases of stuff, and the prices seemed fair. Disappointed they didn't have a bit more 3 Floyds and Pipeworks, but maybe I just didn't hit them on the right day (345 characters)
