apparently this is the smallest location but it was stupid close so it was a no brainer.

they had a very nice selection however a few items had a pretty good covering of dust on them and since they were not dated (and hoppy), i passed. besides that, i as quote pleased, they ahd lots of new releases from all over in stock.

i was asked if i needed assistance several times, the cashier was quite friendly, sparked up conversation, and boxed everything up for me as i had a lot. aces.

i was amazed at how much chicago has actually, i did not expect to find LA 2009 angels share 375ml's. lots of three floyds and the latest releases from goose island. they were missing a few odds and ends that i was looking for (although i found them 7 blocks away somewhere else). overall, pretty good!

talk about Chicago craft beer heaven!! Had a guy who helped me to make sure I bought the best of the kinds of beers I liked too. He even went to the back to get one that wasn't out on the shelf. LOVE this PLACE!

This is a huge establishment with a wide variety of domestic and international craft beers. Pretty much every Chicago microbrewery that cans or bottles was available. Very good prices too.

One of the smaller Binny's size wise, yet consistently has one of the better craft beer selections. They get all the big ones and are always on top of limiting bottles to be sure that people have a shot at getting it. The staff is for the most part helpful, friendly and ready with good selections.

Packed a lot of different beers into a tiny store. Service is good too - very helpful staff
Wide selection of Belgians and other non-US non IPA/stouts.

A very good liquor store for someone self-sufficient. Service is okay in terms of the basics (e.g. helping you find where something is), but the main attraction is the selection. Great beer, wine and spirits selection. Relatively good pricing too.

During a recent trip to Chicago, I hit both this location and the flagship in Lincoln Park. This location pales in comparison to the other. much smaller place and not nearly as much selection (at least as far as local breweries). There is a dedicated parking lot, which is a plus for a location in this area.
