Why not celebrate dad more than one day of the year? We have a fantastic week planned full of tastings, events and bottle engravings at several Binny’s locations. Whether you’re looking for something to do or looking for the perfect gift for dad, we have you covered.
Here’s a great Father’s Day gift idea. A limited edition wine has been bottled commemorating the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field! And this Saturday – only at Binny’s – is your chance to get this special bottle autographed by Hall of Famer Fergie Jenkins. Fine Print after the jump.

Binny’s is excited to join beer enthusiasts across Chicago in celebrating Chicago Craft Beer Week. We’re joined by old favorites including Deschutes and Central Waters, new friends like Vancouver’s Parallel 49, and more! Dates and times after the jump.
Last night, Binny’s hosted World of Whiskies 2014, the best whiskey event of the year, and it was a bigger success than ever. You know the story: we get a bunch of the most innovative and exciting spirits producers (no, it’s not just whiskey) together under one roof to show their latest and greatest.
One very special feature of last night’s event was the release of Four Kings Bourbon. You’ve heard of it, right? It’s a collaborative bottling from Few, MRDC, Journeyman and Corsair. This limited edition whiskey is only available at a handful of Chicago hotspots including Fountainhead and Delilah’s, and only available for purchase at a Binny’s location near you. This stuff won’t last, so head in and grab your bottle soon.
The other real star of the night – if we can be so bold – is the newly expanded Binny’s Lincoln Park. Guests were blown away by our newly expanded location, including the Champagne Depot and Lincoln Park Tasting Room. We knew we had something great, but there’s just something special about witnessing honest reactions to the location. Binny’s Lincoln Park – Seeing is Believing.
Pictures tell a better story than words, so click through for more pics of the event, and check out even more pics on this gallery on the Binny’s Facebook Page.
Bourbon Women Night was a fantastic evening of education, networking and of course, oodles of bourbon!
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.
