In the past I probably would have avoided this Binnys, but now it's one of the more updated and current suburban locations, similar to Orland Park and Plainfield. When you walk in, there's a glass case with rare spirits, Bourbon is at the very end, where I marveled at the Parker's Heritage. Beer is further back, with seasonal endcaps first and a few stacks of choice case displays (Shorts, Founders, SA Longshot, etc.) Winter seasonals were featured, but strangely not marked down (Maibocks were already on the next endcap). Luckily there were plently of things discounted (many Belgians) with the Binnys card that were clearly marked.

Each major group of Imports had their own aisle section, the Belgian (Drie Fonteinen, Rodenbach, De Dolle, Lambrucha), German (1809, Schlenkerla, Hopf), UK (assorted Harvest Ales), etc. Craft was spread out over 3 aisles. Coolers didn't have quite the selection as the shelves, probably just stuff that moves the quickest. Mostly full lines of anything you could think of on the shelves. A couple from JP, 1 Leelanau, and JP Noel on the winter rack.

In the farthest aisle to the right, I noticed some "test market" type stuff that was new to me, such as Wild Onion Paddy Pale cans, the Crown Valley line from MO, Mishawaka, and a few other oddball things.

Service here was great, three different employees helped me out. One found a beer for me, another grabbed a basket, and Jim the beer guy helped me with more detailed beer questions. Overall a great experience at this Binnys.

this place used to be a hole.... now it's pretty much.... filled in.

the beer selection at this binny's is slightly better than your average binny's because of the current beer mgr... (who "of course" will be leaving soon) The selection offers decent runs of major lines, and of course the average to decent binny's sale pricing... this binny's groups it's new releases and seasonals, so when you come in, you can instantly recognize the new and the different.... which is good. (sorta) average binny's european and imports selection, nothing outstanding, but still very good. coolers are more tame offerings, but that's a binny's standard too.

This place had just been rehabed, so the store itself is pristine....

service gets an extra nod cause the mgr here, dave (lonegunman) is hardcore for new skus and generally new beer...

overall really nice.
