What exactly is an Ardbeg Peat Hopper? It’s a cross between a tractor and a chopper created by none other than the guys at Orange County Choppers for Scotch Whisky distillery, Ardbeg. Cool, huh? What’s even cooler is that you can come see it for yourself at a few of our Binny’s locations and sample from Ardbeg’s exciting lineup of some of the peatiest whiskies in Scotland. Wait till you hear this baby roaaaaaaaar.
Shark Week. For almost 30 years now it has been a summer institution.
We recently installed a TV in our Lincoln Park Tasting Room. What better way to show it off than a week of sharks? All through Shark Week we’ll feature pints of Lost Coast’s Great White at the special price of $3. At 7 pm each night, we’ll tune into to The Discovery Channel *
Have you heard of Airstream Speakeasy? It’s a cool concept: they took a vintage Airstream recreational vehicle and totally fixed it up to make “the world’s most technically advanced mobile cocktail bar.” They’re teaming up with Don Julio to bring this cocktail-centric aluminum twinkie on wheels to your neighborhood – with a special stop at Binny’s Evergreen Park.
Don Julio Ambassador Jackson Miranda will be on hand to answer questions (bring your best tequila trivia) and pour you a sample of Don Julio, both on its own and also as the base in great cocktails that that are simple enough that you can make them at home. We’ll have an engraver on hand, for your chance to get your a special bottle of Don Julio 1942etched with your own custom message. That would make a heck of a gift. More info after the jump…
It’s mail time! Veuve Clicquot is touring the USA in a specially branded mail truck, and they’re making a stop at Binny’s in Lincoln Park!

Plus games, including but not limited to humongous Jenga. And because this is a mail truck, you can even write a letter and mail it to a friend. You remember how to write a letter, right?
