Stopped in here right after my first trip to Limestone Brewing. It was a free standing building, adjacent to the strip mall that Limestone was in, anchoring the opposite corner. Layout was similar to the newer store in Algonquin, giant wall-o-beer on the right hand side, and another aisle facing the macro-dominated coolers in the back.

Staff seemed friendly, the few I encountered. It was a more hands off approach, no one was on the floor in the beer area, though there was a station for the beer manager in the back corner by the coolers. The cashier was able to check inventory on a beer that I asked about.

Selection was quite extensive, the majority of US craft were represented by full lines from any given brewer. I noticed 11 Jolly Pumpkin varieties including 2 Leelanau, Parcela, and Noel. Three varieties from Metropolitan, 2009 Bare Tree, and the new Belgian IPA from Hoppin Frog was stacked in the corner by the coolers. I didn't see any current limited items like Nemesis or Batch 9000. Imports were very extensive, several traditional lambics, though they were out of the Cantillon Gueuze, there were several others, plus 3 Drie Fonteinen.

Overall the most comprehensive beer stop in Plainfield...

While this isn't a very large Binny's it does have a fairly decent beer selection. I'd say it's on par with Naperville.

I saw an extensive selection of imports, mini-kegs, and domestic craft beers. Prices appear to be the same as other Binny's I've visited recently. A staff member was around checking whether or not people needed assistance or had questions.

I guess my biggest gripe would be the narrow aisles in the beer section. There's barely enough room to navigate one cart down them. Someone without a cart might be able to squeeze by but it'd be risky around the single bottles (especially in winter with bulky outerwear). The other aisles (wine & spirits) were much better in this regard.
