Everytime I make it into Chicago, Binny's inevitably gets hit by me since its one of the closest good beer suppliers to the hotels of the Loop. A short walk down Grand from the Rock Bottom, Binny's is spacious and bright. Beer takes up the far left hand section of the store with the usual assortment of Macros in the fridges and somewhat surprisingly very little craft ready to drink cold.

Selection is a nice variety and representation of Bell's, Founders, Two Brothers and 3 Floyds. On a recent trip I was lucky enough to score some Gumball Head, Bell's Batch 7000, Founder's Breakfast and Hop Juice. Did notice a paucity of any of the region's smaller breweries, but a man has to make due. Wide selection of imports including Cantillon, but I see all of them here in LA. (It's a sign of obsession when you can walk up to a wall of imported beers and tick off 4 that you haven't had. :) )

I recommend the joint. Sam's has a wider selection, but it's a bit more of a detour for a weary traveller if you're not making a stop at Goose Island as well.

Stopped by during a visit to Chicago to stock up. A large selection of craft beers, both in the cooler and on the shelves. Lots of bombers available. I was looking for Chicago beers and this store did not disappoint. Plenty to choose from inc. offerings from Three Floyds, Revolution, Metropolitan and MANY others. Also an excellent selection of imports and a nice mix-a-six section. Prices seemed reasonable and there were a few really well-priced sale items. Staff seemed friendly and helpful but not pushy.
