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.

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.

Pretty big place. They have a lot of room that they aren't utilizing effectivley. I did notice a wide selection of wine and even a cigar bar. But, the important area which I headed directly to was in the back.. They had four double sided aisle ways with three level shelves full of beer. Pretty well organized by countries and by serving size. Selections avaialble which I picked up were Three Floyds, Rogue, La Chouffe (couple of varieties I have never seen (N'Ice Chouffe)), Great Lakes, Victory, 2 Brother's Incinerator, and many others. Most of the other Belgiums were typical of what i would find here in Michigan so, I skipped them quickly except for the Chouffe's.
Service was not available, but it was Saturday night before Christmas and they were very busy so, I don't want to downgrade for it. They did put some nice bottle covers on every other bottle to protect them, without asking.
Cooler selection was large, but I did not spend too much time perusing as my family was getting ittitated and bored with me so, I had to get dragged out. Very nice place with a huge selection, I wish we had large places like this in Michigan.

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.

Very solid and reliable selection of domestic microbrews as well as desirable imports (most of the Belgian staples). Doesn't get many of the special release beers unless they are very local. One full aisle of domestic 6 packs, one for bombers a 15x15 area of the floor for sale items (all micro) and another full aisle for the good imports. You can also find stuff in the cooler that aren't on the shelves so you need to look at everything. The staff is mildly helpful but not overly knowledgeable or up on current beers or releases. The prices are in line with the averages with the other stores in the area as it is a chain. The selection stands above all.

I am at the Orland Binny's pretty often, and have never really been dissapointed.Good selection, friendly beer guy,( Jeff) and plenty of limited releases(often with a list however), and a 1-2 bottle limit per customer. Prices seem fair, sometimes 1-2$ more than normal but hey, it's a Binny's.
I do appreciate the Emails updating me on new arrivals, as it saves gas because i know i wont be making a trip for nothing. All in all, a very good beer store with plenty to choose from. Worth a stop if you are passing through the area.

This is my go to craft beer store. I can't say enough good things about the manager and this store in general.
I have been in a bunch of Binny's locations and Orland Park is set up very well. There is plenty of room without ever feeling crowded. On busy days it is well crowded but never where I feel like I can't browse in comfort. The craft beer is set up perfectly with an area for new arrivals, country of origin, ect. I have been asked by the staff every visit if I need help with anything. When there are more than one employee in the beer department I will get asked by each of them if I need help. If I do they are more than willing to help and research something for me if need be. I have heard on many occasions employees helping people with craft beer suggestions that don't seem to know what or how to ask but the employees are patient and polite.
The selection is awesome at Orland Park. Now if you are looking for super limited things you more than likely won't find it only because of supply and demand. Craft beer drinkers know that Binny's will get the limited stuff and it won't last long on the shelf, if it even makes it to the shelves. I live an equal distance from this location and another location but I would choose Orland Park every time.
