Although tucked away next to Home Depot, this Binny's location is probably one of the best for beer in the suburbs. The west wall is entirely craft beer as well as many stacked in the same area. The beer guy, Vince, is always willing to talk beer. Walk in cooler featuring cans is a cool idea. Vince has been great about special orders as well. Store is very large and has a warehouse feel to it, but every time I have been there, I have gotten great service.
Vince told me they are also focusing on craft kegs with a large board up front listing current inventory. Unfortunately, I have moved from the area, but have always enjoyed this Binny's the most.

Binny's DG is very convenient if you travel on 88 or 355 past Downers Grove area. Located just NW of 355/Butterfield Rd.
The store is located in the old Sam's next to Home Depot which explains that high, warehouse like ceiling. Very large and open layout. Wine located on the right 1/3, liquor in the middle 1/3 and beer takes up about the entire left 1/3 of the store. The cigars and coolers are also on the left side of the store.
The beer selection is up there with all of the Binny's locations. A decent portion of the American Craft beers are stacked on the floor which can take a little time looking for anything in particular, but the advantage is that the cases may have bottled on dates if you can't find one on the actual bottle(s). Also, they have recently added the "can cave" in the back right corner that has all of the craft canned beers.
If you have any questions or are looking for any rarities ask for Vince or Jimmy and they will help you with anything you need. Both very knowledgeable and helpful guys.

This Binny's has a pretty different layout than most. The beer is scattered around the left side.
This particular binnys didn't see to have as an expansive selection as most. They did seem to be advertising some kind of "can cooler" i guess for canned varieties. So maybe they have a large selection of cans. Why they chose that to specialize in i dk.
The seasonal shelf had some interesting stuff incl Upright beers I haven't seen before.
Overall it is a decent Binny's, nothing to go out of your way for. It's location is also kind of odd it is hidden behind another building from the road.
