This is the place I go when I'm not sure what I want and I just want to browse. Very good selection. The prices are ok. Some of the staff is pretty knowlegdeable, but it's kind of hit or miss. They're supposed to have a beer email list that I signed up for, but I haven't received anything yet.

They also sell cheeses and cigars.

The best thing about this place is that they have periodic tasting events, and not just for beer either. The beer tasting I went to last year ($15) was one of the most fun ones I've gone to.

If you've seen one Binnys you've seen them all, but for some reason this one just feels more like a basement than anything. But lets be honest, its a beer stow so vibe isn't a big deal.

Craft selection is about average for Binnys - they have all the major brands, and have a nice selection of some of the local breweries like Hailstorm. Macro selection is standard. Import selection was above average here - they had some really nice harder to find German and Belgian imports. Quality is again standard for Binnys - prices are competitive, freshness is pretty good.

Staff was friendly and helpful, but didn't seem to be too knowledgeable. Beer manager knew his stuff though.

This is my go to craft beer store. I can't say enough good things about the manager and this store in general.

I have been in a bunch of Binny's locations and Orland Park is set up very well. There is plenty of room without ever feeling crowded. On busy days it is well crowded but never where I feel like I can't browse in comfort. The craft beer is set up perfectly with an area for new arrivals, country of origin, ect. I have been asked by the staff every visit if I need help with anything. When there are more than one employee in the beer department I will get asked by each of them if I need help. If I do they are more than willing to help and research something for me if need be. I have heard on many occasions employees helping people with craft beer suggestions that don't seem to know what or how to ask but the employees are patient and polite.

The selection is awesome at Orland Park. Now if you are looking for super limited things you more than likely won't find it only because of supply and demand. Craft beer drinkers know that Binny's will get the limited stuff and it won't last long on the shelf, if it even makes it to the shelves. I live an equal distance from this location and another location but I would choose Orland Park every time.

I am at the Orland Binny's pretty often, and have never really been dissapointed.Good selection, friendly beer guy,( Jeff) and plenty of limited releases(often with a list however), and a 1-2 bottle limit per customer. Prices seem fair, sometimes 1-2$ more than normal but hey, it's a Binny's.

I do appreciate the Emails updating me on new arrivals, as it saves gas because i know i wont be making a trip for nothing. All in all, a very good beer store with plenty to choose from. Worth a stop if you are passing through the area.
