This Binnys was nestled behind a Jiffy Lube place, freestanding in the midst of parking lots with no other stores around. This location seemed to be one of the older ones. It was a Sunday about 20 minutes to close, and there weren't any staff on the floor. There was a person at a central info desk though, but I didn't approach with any beer questions. Checkout was quick and friendly.

Similar to many other suburban Binny's the "wall o' beer" starts on the right hand side and spills out into more short aisles and in the coolers to the back wall. Notable was the case plus of Flossmoor Shimkos Simcoes, with some in the cooler, and the "Beth's beer pick of the month" Redeye Coffee Porter from 2 Bros. (both solid local options). I was looking for Cantillon and sadly didn't see much in the way of lambics. There was a good range of Founders and Three Floyds, full lines from many midwest breweries. Didn't see anything on sale or clearance here, or singles as I was hoping to see in Kane Co. Pretty good quality and selection, all the bottles were clean and well organized. I might stop by again if I was going to the Kane Co. Flea Market...

This place is in a sea of random parking lots but you can see the store from a good ways off. It is the typical Binny's look with clean modern building with big Binny's logo on top. Inside I saw the beer selection without even taking 2 steps in the door. The whole wall to my right was warm beer with cooler doors behind it. After I walked through the beer isle for the first perusal I thought this was a pretty good selection. Then in walking around the store I noticed that there is more beer in another few isles beside the cooler doors. What a bonus. It was good to see BA hang tags on somethings but it was interesting that they had multiple signs promoting the glassware selection on the other side of the store. I was hope to find some good glassware to pair with my beers but it only had a few martini glasses, a few odd pint glasses and a few odd hand painted glasses by a young artist.

The beer selection had lots to chose from from American craft beer and some good European selection. The staff was friendly and although they were busy unloading boxes I had several workers stop to ask if I need help. They also had a rack of discounted beers up front by the checkout, and I managed to wedge a few bottles into my already full arms. Binny's rarely lets me down and this was a nice surprise to see in this area that can be a bit sparse for beer hunting.

I stopped here today while at my parents house. Their selection of imported beer and large-format American beer is on the east wall. There is at least 75 beers available there. There is a cooler with a decent selection of cold 6-packs and singles imports and big bottles towards the back on the east wall. West of this are the 6-packs. They have a good selection of Founders, Goose, Capital, Sprecher, and others. Probably another 40 or so varieties. Overall, this is the best place to buy beer in the far west suburbs. I have not interacted with the staff, so I can't comment on their knowledge, but everyone there is friendly. The store is clean and well lit and easy to navigate. I am impressed with it.
