This is a pretty standard Binny's vs. other Chicagoland locations. To their credit, the selection is good, and well cared for.

Good representation of Germans and Belgians, with a couple Fantome offerings. Some cheap euro imports on sale found toward the front. 3F seasonal bombers, plus a few other US craft bombers toward the back left corner of the store. Lots of New Holland and Lagunitas, eh. Late 2007 visit, Belgian shelves were pretty dusty.

Service was lousy, there were about ten employees hanging out by the registers talking, and no one even close to the beer dept. Checkout was apathetic, I had to ask for double bags for the 10-12 singles i was carrying out. On my last visit, checkout was ok, so service varies. Hands-off approach fully in effect.

If you are in the area, it's worth a stop, but if you are Chicago bound, don't bother.

addendum: For the intrepid seeker of vintage/aged beer, check out Quality Liquors (7639 N Milwaukee Ave) down the road...one "shelf of oddities" had some interesting contents. Namely singles of Aass Bock, Artevelde, Brigand, Spotted Cow, & St. Bernadus. Also some random Belgian glassware. The beers are ancient...you may have to haggle for a fair price on these...
