Another run of the mill Binny's, this one however seems to cater more to lambics and guezues than other Binny's I've been to in the past, so if that is what you are looking for this is the place for you. They also do a bit of a better job letting you know which beers are new, as they have a new arrival shelf and tags placed throughout the store. Besides that they layout here is much the same as all the other suburban Binny's, they also have a few beers here that other Binny's lack, but make up for it by not having beers that other Binny's locations do.

About once per year I make a day of cruising around and hitting up a bunch of shops looking for things to add to the cellar...
I made the trip here last year but never reviewed it... A problem that shall be rectified thusly;

Low ceilings give the illusion that this store is smaller than it is-- at least compared to the giant box-store locations from this chain. I rather like it, it makes it feel a bit more cozy.

The beer is all on the right side of the store as you walk in, and the highlights for me were;
6 different Jolly Pumpkin beers
A wide selection of Belgian imports, including many sours like 3F, Hansenns, etc. No Cantillon or Tilquin though.

I wandered around for 17 minutes and was approached only once by an employee-- he seemed friendly and answered my gueuze-related questions.

Prices are exactly what Binny's corporate office says they are-- the in-line pricing amongst all the chains is a double edged sword; when they have a good deal, it's available everywhere.... When a beer you really want is over-priced then you're screwed.
Take the rough with the smooth an keep a stiff upper lip.
