This Binny’s is in a shopping mall and it seems a bit odd. It looks like a big two story space from the outside but it is a large lofty one story warehouse on the inside. As you walk in there are several short rows of beers. There is a row of imports and then the beer skips a row and moves into craft beers. It is a bit odd but once you walk around a bit you can get your bearings.

There is a long row of cooler doors and they have some sale beers on the ends of the rows which makes it nice if you are not sure what you are in the mood for.

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.

Very solid and reliable selection of domestic microbrews as well as desirable imports (most of the Belgian staples). Doesn't get many of the special release beers unless they are very local. One full aisle of domestic 6 packs, one for bombers a 15x15 area of the floor for sale items (all micro) and another full aisle for the good imports. You can also find stuff in the cooler that aren't on the shelves so you need to look at everything. The staff is mildly helpful but not overly knowledgeable or up on current beers or releases. The prices are in line with the averages with the other stores in the area as it is a chain. The selection stands above all.

This used to be a go to place for me whenever we had to head to Orland-- my parents and my inlaws live in town and a stop here made dealing with them MUCH easier.
It is sad that Mario is no longer the beer guy. He was great: friendly and knowledgeable with a love for sour beers. He made sure to order whatever Cantillon beers he could get his hands on. This was also the only store where I have seen the Hannsen's lambic beers including the experimental line up. Andrew, one of the newer beer guys, is pretty good to chat with too.

The selection is similar tokay of the other Binny's stores-- lots and lots of good stuff. This isn't the best place to grab limited releases because of how busy they are-- beers like KBS had a "waiting list" that ended with each person getting 1 or 2 bottles.

The prices are fair. If you buy something on sale, it's a great price. If you are am educated consumer, then you should be able to avoid the wildly overpriced beers.

The store is less than 10 minutes off I-80, so it makes for a decent place to stop if you're driving through IL.
Sorry guys-- no Half Acres yet.
