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 Binny’s is in a shopping mall and it seems a bit odd. It looks like a big two story space from the outside but it is a large lofty one story warehouse on the inside. As you walk in there are several short rows of beers. There is a row of imports and then the beer skips a row and moves into craft beers. It is a bit odd but once you walk around a bit you can get your bearings.
There is a long row of cooler doors and they have some sale beers on the ends of the rows which makes it nice if you are not sure what you are in the mood for.

Binny's OP, the 4th Binny's I've been too, and probably the worst. First of all its incredibly difficult to find, at the back of a big mall, not at all easy to find based on an addresss...The beer department is big but spread out way to much and not organized well at all. There are about 6 rows of beer, with no rhyme or reason. They do say imports or domestic but that's not a help. They have sixers together but the bottles are everywhere. There was 3fff on one row then some more 2 rows over that makes no sense, same with Bruery beers...The quality was ok nothing special, although I did snag a bottle of Artic Panzer Wolf and coton. Service was ok, I was there 20 minutes didn't have any ask for help until I was leaving...Overall, nothing special there and totally disorganized.

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.

Stopped in at this Binny's quite a few times. The quality is pretty damn good. Things seem to be taken care of well. Most of the beer I buy here is warm on the shelves. They have a really nice selection of belgiums. Along with a decent amount of bombers from various craft brewers.
I've never really had any questions while I was shopping but at the register the people seem pleasent enough. the prices seem good too.
Every time I go in here I find a few hard to find craft brews which I'm always excited about. They carry full lines of, in my opinion, some of the better breweries. Bells, Founders, Victory, Avery, and Great Lakes. They also carry a very respectable number of european single bottles from Germany and England mostly but there's others as well. I always spend WAY to much time here trying to make up my mind on what to buy and ALWAYS spend way more money than I plan on spending. I do usually bring home a couple harder to find brews though.
I'm a big fan of this Binny's and stop there anytime I'm in the area.

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.

Wow. Wish we had one of these in Detroit. It was an 8 hour round trip drive, and I spent over 200.00, but it was way worth it. Huge selection of liqors and spirits, but more important - an excellant selection of beers from around the country and from around the world. Many of LaCrosse and Milwaukee's better macros are available at good prices, as are many regional beers from the midwest. A nice selection of Founders, Bell's and DFH beers were available, as were some obscure favorites, such as offerings from Jolly Pumpkin. The staff was approchable, although I didn't need any help, the cashier was very nice and versed in the beers that they offered. A decent cooler wall as well. I plan on checking out other Binny's in the Chicagoland area in the future. If they are anything like this (and i've been told this is one of the smaller stores), they won't be a letdown.

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!

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.

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.
