Binny's of Orland has an expansive selection. Not going to get cheap prices but you will definitly find beers you were seeking. The workers at this location are knowledgable and helpful. They are always asking if they can help. I enjoy this stores selection of German Ales and American Microbrews. They also carry local breweries beers (such as Flossmor Stations).
The shelves are labeled with BeerAdvocate ratings to help you remember beers you were seeking.
Binny's selection and helpful workers make this one of my favorite stores.

I live about 25 minutes from this store and visit it at least 1-2 times per month.
This store is located in a small mall area in Orland Park, between a Kohl's and a Marshall's store. The parking lot is huge and provides easy access.
Inside, this place features 5-6 aisles of beers and two cooler sections. The selection is very good, with notable beers from all the best American craft breweries (those available in Illinois that is) as well as significant offerings from Great Britain, Belgium, and Germany.
Prices are a few cents higher than other places I shop, but still within the bounds of fairness and reason. The staff are extremely knowledgable and quick to help with locating an item or shooting the breeze about what beers are out and which ones are arriving soon.
Overall I highly recomend this Binny's as an excellent beer destination in the southwest Chicago 'burbs.

Not a bargain type of place, but the selection is basically unbeatable. I like the service at this place mostly because they actually have knowledgeable employees. I drink enough beer (and pay attention to it) to know a fair amount, but they can still answer my questions and point me in the right direction.
It's one of the few places that can surprise me with beers I hadn't thought existed.
I've never gotten skunky, bad, old, or otherwise questionable beers from these guys.
The one downfall, that I can barely even believe, is that they don't have any Alesmith brews -- the one time I had set out looking for it!

Stopped heire today after finding it by eating at the local Buca di Beppo. They have about 5 aisles of beers and a few coolers as well. Had a lot of stuff that I never see anywhere else around here. I found 3 bear republics, lots of Southern tier, tons of Belgians, had a nice selection of mini kegs, and gift sets as well. The people that worked here were also very nice, always wiling to help and talk about beer, and for a beer store, they really do do customer service as they are always making sure that you can find everything that you need. This was my first foray into a big liquor store like this but I have to say i was more than impressed. My only downside was that I thought it was a bit expensive for some of the beers.

As everyone said, very large place. It's all about the selection here. You're going here to find anything and everything.
Has an excellent selection of beer bombers, imports, etc, etc, though seemed oddly light on rum varieties.
There is wine out the wazoo in the place. That's the only way to say it.
They also sell gourmet deli food, cigars, etc.
The staff is always patrolling, though they don't seem ALL that knowledgeable. I guess they could be worse.
The prices can be both bad and good. Some of the American microbrews can be a very decent deal if you're a Binny's member, etc. Like 9.99 for a 12 pack of Sam Adams, that sort of thing. Damn decent.

This is an easy one to miss. It is on the backside of the Orland Park Place shopping center in the old Wieboldt's store. It is directly south of Orland Square. When it opened I stopped in and was skeptical about what I would find inside. It is a smaller store, not as large as some of the other Binny's but it is packed with merchandise. They have the usual exceptional selection of beers that you can expect at Binny's. The service is far better than Naperville. At this store, everyone on the staff asked me if I needed help. They seem to have the store well stocked, though it is new and that might change in the future as it is discovered. I used to travel to the Naperville store often (and Glen Ellyn occasionally) to purchase beer but from now on this is my Binny's of choice.

Nestled off the main drag of suburban sprawl, this Binny's looms ominous from the parking lot. Stuck on the angular corner of a satellite shopping mall next to another mall...
Inside the doors, all the way back towards the right, first aisles (43-45) are import 6-packs and a few gift sets with glassware. Unibroue is split up between these aisles, and 750s in another aisle further down. Alot of German sixers, some Belgian options like Duvel & Duchesse 4-packs.
Keep going back past some floorspace for cases, and the next aisle you come to are seasonals. Lots of Festbiers and Pumpkin options, mixed import domestic. At least 20-25 options! Next aisle is Belgian 750s/singles on the left (Hanssens Oude Gueuze, Fantome Hiver, Duchesse), then craft bombers on the right. Some good small-batch stuff like 3F Behemoth and Founders Blushing Monk. Across from these are the German, British, Euro singles.
Next two aisles closest to coolers are exclusively US craft, many options grouped by brewery. Alot of 3F, Sprecher, Founders, and GI Reserve line, plus many others. Smaller craft selection in coolers. Shelf talkers with some RB ratings and "in cooler" or "on sale" notes. Certain dwindling Belgians were located on a small stand near the coolers, including a bunch of De Dolle Export Stout. A few more random ones were also on an endcap by the registers. Wondering if these will be phased out here.
Service was exceptional due to the fact that they hunted down a couple things I asked about, and were happy to talk about beer. The beer manager was really helpful with release info. on certain beers as well. Checkout was friendly.
The location is out of the way for me, but when i'm travelling in the SW burbs, i'll be stopping again. One of the better suburban stores of the chain, 2nd to Glen Ellyn.

This used to be a go to place for me whenever we had to head to Orland-- my parents and my inlaws live in town and a stop here made dealing with them MUCH easier.
It is sad that Mario is no longer the beer guy. He was great: friendly and knowledgeable with a love for sour beers. He made sure to order whatever Cantillon beers he could get his hands on. This was also the only store where I have seen the Hannsen's lambic beers including the experimental line up. Andrew, one of the newer beer guys, is pretty good to chat with too.
The selection is similar tokay of the other Binny's stores-- lots and lots of good stuff. This isn't the best place to grab limited releases because of how busy they are-- beers like KBS had a "waiting list" that ended with each person getting 1 or 2 bottles.
The prices are fair. If you buy something on sale, it's a great price. If you are am educated consumer, then you should be able to avoid the wildly overpriced beers.
The store is less than 10 minutes off I-80, so it makes for a decent place to stop if you're driving through IL.
Sorry guys-- no Half Acres yet.

This is the place I go when I'm not sure what I want and I just want to browse. Very good selection. The prices are ok. Some of the staff is pretty knowlegdeable, but it's kind of hit or miss. They're supposed to have a beer email list that I signed up for, but I haven't received anything yet.
They also sell cheeses and cigars.
The best thing about this place is that they have periodic tasting events, and not just for beer either. The beer tasting I went to last year ($15) was one of the most fun ones I've gone to.

I've been here several times but am just now getting around to a review.
This one was kind of strange upon entering. The first thing they did was demand an ID, something I've never encountered in any other Binny's, or any other liquor stores for that matter. With that aside the place is pretty standard, but not as good as the other Binny's I've been to. There's six packs of imports in one aisle, bombers of American craft in one aisle, then some import single bottles in another, then some six packs of American crafts in another. Not much in the way of service there, though that doesn't really concern me much. I've seen someone ask for advice from a guy that worked there and he seemed knowledgeable and offered some solid advice. This one doesn't have the best selection of all Binny's but it's still very good compared to the stores around here. I have always been impressed by Binny's, so if you happen to be in the area then this place is definitely worth a stop, there's bound to be something you will want.
