A big, wide open liquor store. Brand new and shiny. Complete with a tasting room and humidor. This is the first Binny's I have been to, because I don't get up to the Chicago area all that often. I think there is one in Bloomington now as well. So they are definitely making a presents and encroaching in on Friar Tuck land.

Service is friendly and will not hesitate to come up and chat. Which is a good thing. The selection is much the same as Friar Tuck, but the service seems more knowledgeable. The place is also much more organized than the piles of randomness that is Friar Tuck. Which I really enjoy. I got a mixed pack of Great Lakes, and there is plenty else to chose from. I like it. I will be here and at Piccadilly for my Champagin beer shopping, and probably phase out Friar Tuck now.

Binny's continues to add quality brewers to their selection. I have been pleasantly surprised by the additions especially this past year. Living in what used to be a beer desert, I appreciate wholly what Binnys has to offer.
