Hop Vapin’ with Lagunitas

Tagged:

Brewers Mary Bauer and Joe Flores of Lagunitas Chicago recently led an exciting seminar on hops at Binny’s Lincoln Park. To enhance our understanding of hops, Lagunitas placed ground hops into a volcano vaporizer. As different beers from Lagunitas were sampled, attendees got a whiff of a corresponding hop used in that beer.

Binny’s Wheeling: Now Open!

Tagged:

Binny’s Wheeling is now open! We’ve closed our store in Buffalo Grove after 22 years and moved just a few blocks away to Wheeling. Our new home in Wheeling is 20,000+ square feet and has a 21 door beer cooler, a temperature controlled wine cellar for fine and rare wines, a walk-in humidor and the widest selection of 8,500+ wine, spirits and beer products. The spacious interior has tall ceilings and large aisles for a more comfortable shopping experience. You’ll notice something new – a much bigger store – but you can still count on the personal touch, knowledgeable service and low prices that have been the mission of our local family-owned business since 1948.

Confessions of a Mixologist: CHee-Key

Tagged:

This cheeky cocktail is sour and bitter with a sweet finish. It reminds us of a melted Popsicle on a hot summer day. Bartender Angie selected the gin for its key lime and juniper flavors. It’s distilled locally in the heart of Chicago at CH Distillery on Randolph Street, just less than two miles from both our Downtown and South Loop locations.

Confessions of a Mixologist: On Second Thought…

Tagged:

On Second Thought is a twist on the classic cocktail, The Last Word. Bartender Colleen wanted to use Rhubarb Tea Liqueur, an 80-proof spirit that’s a blend of rhubarb, lemon, and beets, along with spices like cardamom, pink peppercorns, and coriander. It compliments the gin well and creates a mix of floral and bitter flavors with a tart bite – very similar to the taste of Sweetheart candies. Super delish!
