Beer Buzz: Half Acre Expands Distribution

This announcement has been a long time coming: We are proud to report that Half Acre beers are now available at all Chicagoland Binny’s locations.  For years, thirsty beer drinking Binny’s shoppers in Orland Park, Willowbrook, Algonquin, McHenry, Naperville, St. Charles, Glen Ellyn, Plainfield, Downers Grove, Bolingbrook, and Evergreen Park have been deprived of delicious offerings such as Over Ale and Gossamer.  But the suburban Half Acre drought is now over, and in our opinion there is no better way to celebrate than with a cold 16oz can of Daisy Cutter.

Bourbon Women Night Recap and Photos

Bourbon Women Night was a fantastic evening of education, networking and of course, oodles of bourbon!
 

Jim Beam Binny's

 

Fun whiskey enthusiasts enjoyed samples from a large selection of bourbon, whiskey and craft spirits. It’s tough to name our favorites because they were all so amazing. A few highlights included a Vosges chocolate and Koval bourbon pairing, craft spirits from our friends at North Shore Distillery and incredible single malts and cask strength Signatory bottlings from the Stoller profile. We also had some sweet treats (Bourbon Manhattan cupcakes to be exact) from our pals at Cakes Under The Influence.
