Been to this Binnys a half dozen times over the years, just getting around to reviewing after stopping in today. Pretty much the standard Binnys layout with beer along the wall on the right side.

US craft bombers/sixers up first, moving into English, Belgian, German, and finally Eastern Europe and Asia. In the middle there were short rows of case displays where some seasonal and limited bombers resided. Some Cane & Ebel 4-packs were dated BB: 7/19/09 and there were at least 3 cases there. There was a good selection of FFF bombers along the wall with the brand new BrooDoo and recent Munsterfest (on sale w/binnys card). I was looking for traditional lambics/sours and didn't find much besides Lindemans, Goudenband, 1809/Gruut, and Duchesse. Some JW Lees cask aged going for $9.99, standard UK imports and a few interesting obscure ones here and there. German bombers from Schlenkerla, Plank, Moosbacher, Innstadt. Imports in general seemed fairly standard although representing a broad range.

Also present were Flossmoor Wheat & Brown, but no IPA. Jolly Pumpkin selection was limited to Noel & Weizen Bam. So in some cases you don't see the full line from a particular brewery, probably based on sales history. There was a good amount of Bells, Founders, Goose, also Ft. Collins, Reaper Ales, a bunch of Ska cans, 2 from Southern Star (Pine Belt & Blonde).

There was an employee on the floor asking everyone if they were finding what they wanted. Sadly they hadn't received any Juliet, but they had most of the GI reserve line. Another staff person was looking for a beer on the shelf that someone at the register had asked about, so it seemed that they were really helping customers out. In the past my only interaction was at the registers, which has since improved.

Overall a good stop, helpful staff, and a good amount of craft to choose from.
