If you’re a fan of Small Town Brewery, you already know that you can’t purchase their liquid gold in anything but a keg. That is until now. The Wauconda brewery is releasing a few cases of Not Your Father’s 10% Root Beer in bottles for the first time in Illinois. The bottles will only be available at Binny’s in Algonquin that evening. We expect to see more at all of the stores in 2014. These few cases are expected to sell out quick, so get there early.
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.

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.
Join us Friday, November 15th at 5pm at Binny’s Lincoln Park for the 2013 launch of Perennial’s sought after Abraxas to Chicago! If you didn’t already know, Perennial Abraxas is an Imperial Stout brewed with Ancho Chile, Cacao Nibs, Vanilla Bean and Cinnamon Sticks, and is delicious.

Virtue Cider is doing cool things in the world of cider. For their latest, they “borrowed” an idea from Beaujolais producers – Beaujolais Nouveaeu, specifically. They picked the freshest fruit to make the freshest, youngest cider possible. And we can’t wait to get some.
We’re giving you a chance to taste this freshest of ciders. More info after the jump…
Off Color Brewing will be the latest local brewery featured at Binny’s upon making their debut next week. Off Color’s founding fathers are Goose Island alum John Laffler and Two Brothers alum Dave Bleitner. That is some serious brewing pedigree, and we are seriously excited for their new beers. Bleitner was a brewer at Two Brothers, and Laffler was pretty much in charge of Bourbon County Stout while working at Goose Island. Need we say more?
