Our newly opened Binny’s in Champaign has an interesting mix of beers when compared to our Chicago city and suburban stores. The store features 9 breweries that aren’t in distribution in Chicagoland, and around 40 beers that you won’t find in the Windy City. Also, there are 9 additional breweries that we are featuring at our store whose beers you won’t find anywhere else in the city of Champaign but at Binny’s. The number 9 seems to be a theme for this blog, as there are 9 breweries that we are actively trying to recruit to distribute their beers in Champaign.
