Revolution Citra Hero - Get it first at Binny’s!

When Revolution announced they planned to can their widely popular Hero-Series of IPAs, they had our full attention. From this solid line up, we’re happy to announce the arrival of Citra Hero; it might just be our favorite.

Revolution Citra Hero6 Pack of 12oz Cans

Perhaps we’re a bit biased for Citra hop. To be fair, Citra Hero is pretty easy to fall in love with. After popping the top, you’re immediately hit with an intoxicating mix of pineapple and guava. Belgian aromatic malts and red wheat provide complexity and smoothness, yet the star of the show remains the incredibly citrusy and fruity hop finish. This is Citra at its best.

*Not available in Bloomington.

Fruits of Summer – Pineapple Edition

With newer breeds of hops like Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe imparting some amazing tropical fruit flavors and aromas, many brewers are doubling down by adding actual fruit to the mix. What better time than summer to turn up the tropical. We love pineapple, and if you do too, here are four fresh new flavors that are not to be missed.

Ballast Point Pineapple Sculpin6 Pack of 12oz Bottles

Over the past decade, Ballast Point Sculpin has garnered countless accolades and has grown to one of the most recognized and highest rated IPAs on the market. How do you improve on such greatness? First they added grapefruit to the mix and we said, wow! Now they’ve turned to pineapple, imparting a touch of tropical sweetness to the classic piney and citrusy Sculpin finish. Once again, Ballast Point nails it!

Sweetwater Goin' Coastal6 Pack of 12oz Bottles

Goin Coastal combines “The Three C’s of hops” (Columbus, Cascade and Centennial) with Simcoe and Goldings for big waves of citrus and big juicy tropical fruit. Add pineapple to the mix and you’re left with a zesty fruit forward IPA. At 6.1% abv, it’s not quite a session IPA, but a touch of wheat helps make it so light and refreshing you’ll be jonesing for more.

Horny Goat Laka Laka Pineapple Hefe 6 Pack of 12oz Cans

Not in the mood for something hoppy? Horny Goat has you covered with their Laka Laka Pineapple Hefeweizen. This creamy wheat beer combines the spicy and fruity notes a good yeasty hefe is famous for, with bright sweet pineapple. This tropical treat comes in cans, perfect for the boat or the beach!

Ace Pineapple Cider6 Pack of 12oz Bottles

Pineapple Cider? That’s right, pineapple is popping up everywhere these days. Ace makes great cider and this is one of their most requested varieties. Up front it’s an explosion of gummie candy sweetness, yet surprisingly it has enough acidity to finish dry. This is great over ice and if you add a splash of your favorite rum you’ve got a quick and easy summer cocktail.

Wittekerke Wild Glassware Offer

Wittekerke Wild4 Pack of 16.9oz Cans

You may have heard that one of the hottest “styles” of beer right now is sour beer, but in reality sour is more of a flavor profile than it is a single style. Just ask the Belgians. Lambics, Guezes, and Flemish Reds are only a few of the different beer styles they have birthed that feature complex funky and sour notes. We are happy to announce the arrival of a new gem courtesy of Brewery De Brabandere. De Brabandere is famous for their Petrus line of beers which are aged in large oak barrels called foeders. These barrels are home to a host of unique yeast and bacteria which were harvested and used to sour a batch of Wittekerke Belgian Wit. The result is Wittekerke Wild. The nose is a wonderful mixture of lemonpeel, white pepper and a touch of earthy funk. Paradoxically creamy but with an intensly tart finish, this refreshing new riff on a traditional Belgian Witbier might be the best summer session beer yet.

While supplies last, receive a Wittekerke glass free with purchase of a 4 pack!

*Free glass offer is valid in Binny's stores only with a Binny's Card. While supplies last. See store associate for details. Not valid in Champaign or Bloomington.

Cheers to the Start of Summer!

Summer is finally here! The weather has been hot lately and you need refreshments. Here’s to the return of some summer classics perfect for quenching your thirst!

Victory Summer Love6 Pack of 12oz Cans

Victory proves themselves yet again with this impeccably brewed golden ale. A light and clean malt body allows Citra’s famously tropical hop aromas to shine. They combine marvelously with spicy German Tettnang hops for a crisp refreshing finish. One sip and you’ll understand why it’s so easy to love.

Bell's Oberon6 Pack of 12oz Bottles

When it comes to summer beer, it’s hard to beat this classic from Kalamazoo. A treasured Midwestern favorite, Bell’s Oberon is a fruity and creamy wheat ale with a zesty finish.

Anderson Valley Summer Solstice6 Pack of 12oz Cans

Summer Solstice has a fruity nose with notes of vanilla and sweet spice. This unique summer beer has a soft creamy mouthfeel and a sweet caramel finish. With flavors reminiscent of a dreamsicle, this brew makes a great beer float.

Goose Island Bonus Buy

Goose Island Summertime12 Pack of 12oz Bottles

They heard you missed it, so it’s back! Modeled after a traditional German Kölsch, this brew is light-bodied with a smooth, lemony finish. Extremely quaffable and refreshing, this is a great "session" beer.

*Goose Island 12 pack & Pureau offer is valid 6/22 - 7/10/2016 in Binny's stores only with a Binny's Card or while supplies last. See store associate for details. Not valid in Champaign or Bloomington.

Delirium Argentum & Deliria Glassware Offer

Delirium Argentum & Deliria

While Brouwerij Huyghe may not ring a bell, there’s a good chance you’ve tried their iconic beer Delirium Tremens. It’s been 25 years since those little pink elephants marched onto the scene and they’ve collected numerous accolades along the way. For many, Delirium Tremens served as their introduction to the wonderful world of complex Belgian ales, and now we’d like to introduce you to a couple delicious additions to the Delirium family.

Not only are we offering these brews at a substantial discount, you’ll also receive one of their famous chalices (with those cute little elephants) FREE with each bottle purchased. That’s 50% off in total savings!

Delirium Argentum 25.4oz Bottle $11.99

Argentum is a Belgian IPA brewed to celebrate the silver anniversary of Delirium Tremens. Amber in color with sparkling effervescence and a creamy head of foam, it artfully showcases earthy European hops, cracker malt character and spicy Belgian yeast. Complex, balanced and highly drinkable, this is a very solid addition to the Delirium lineup.

Delirium Deliria 25.4oz Bottle $11.99

An homage to the female brewers of the world, Deliria is brewed once a year as a celebration of International Woman’s Day. The nose is reminiscent of Delirium Tremens with banana and sweet spice, but Deliria also possesses an intoxicating floral hop aroma. Full bodied but still balanced, it’s fruity and rich yet finishes nice and dry.

*Not valid in Champaign or Bloomington. Free glass offer is valid in Binny's stores only with a Binny's Card. Valid through 7/4/2016 or while supplies last. See store associate for details.
