Last month we packed our bags and hit the road. Big Sky invited us out to their brewery in Montana to see how our exclusive batch of Ivan the Terrible was doing.
Join us for a special meet and greet with Shannon, the Loop Rock Girl courtesy of Labatt Blue. Stop by to grab a picture with Shannon, get an autograph and try some Labatt Blue.

What makes Binny’s Beverage Depot the best place to find your new favorite wine? Is it our low prices? Our breathtaking selection? We like to think it’s because we have the friendliest, most knowledgeable wine staff around. So we turned to our Downers Grove wine department for their favorite holiday recommendations.
On my most recent trip to Ireland I had the opportunity to travel with Bord Bia (the Irish Food Board) and attend their Origin Green Conference focused on sustainability and green food and beverage production in Ireland. I met Ireland’s Prime Minister Enda Kenny, watched the Gaelic football championship game (Ireland’s Superbowl) in a traditional Irish pub and visited my favorite brewery, Guinness.
Day one of my trip started in the County Cork at the historic Midleton Distillery. Midleton is home to Jameson, Powers, Paddy and pure potstill Redbreast, one of the best Irish whiskeys on our shelf. They also provide whiskey on contract to support long existing independent brands.
Surly at Binny’s? Yes.
I have personally done like three beer trades in my whole life. And at least two of them were to get Surly. Because Surly. One time I slept for three hours in a tent on a 34 degree night to get Surly. You know the one I mean. So I got excited when I heard that Surly is indeed coming to Chicago in a full-time, everyday availability sort of way.
Which Surly? Furious. Hell. Cynic. Overrated. Bender. Coffee Bender.
We’re kicking things off at the new Binny’s Evergreen Park, and some of our Chicago sports pals are stopping by to help us out. First:
Monday, December 2nd
Meet Chicago Blackhawks player Ben Smith courtesy of Bud Light and The Score. Ben will answer questions, sign photographs and pose for pictures. And he’s bringing some Bud Light Ice Crew ladies, too.
There’s more. You’re going to want to click the “continue reading” link on this one.
The wait is over. Now… finally… you can come inside the brand new Binny’s Beverage Depot in Evergreen Park and buy stuff. Find us at 3447 W 95th St in Evergreen Park.
So far, a lot of people have remarked that it seems strange that just a few months ago, the building was a bowling alley. About that – we love the building and didn’t want to completely forget its heritage, so we built a shrine to Bleekers, complete with 20 original bowling pins, 28 bowling balls and bowling shoes in every size from baby to Bozo.
This is important: We are so proud to introduce Binny’s to this neighborhood. As a family-owned, Chicago-based company, we are passionate about community and heritage, and that’s why we’re so excited to be in Evergreen Park. Give us a visit. Check out our store, our selection, our prices, our mountains of beverages, and most importantly, our people.
It’s something of an annual tradition here at Binny’s Beverage Depot. In the weeks leading up to the holidays, Johnnie Walker sends out engraving experts who will custom etch your bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Right there, at Binny’s. For free. Well, you do have to buy the bottle. Did we mention they’re pouring samples of Johnnie Walker Platinum too?
That makes a great gift for the Scotch lover even more special! But you have to be here in time to catch the etching crew. Binny’s locations, dates and times after the jump…
The opening of Binny’s Evergreen Park, located at 3447 W. 95th Street is almost here. Wine racks are full, the beer cooler is well stocked and the staff looks like a bunch of rockstars! What else would you expect from Binny’s Beverage Depot? Here are some snaps from today. See you on Wednesday at 9am. Trust us, it’ll be worth your time!
The first wines of 2013 – from the Northern Hemisphere, at least – will arrive in Binny’s stores on Thursday, November 21st. We invite you to stop in and try some.
It’s Beaujolais Nouveau Time!
