I'm back in Mississippi, just now checking back on this thread, and did not go to Binny's. It's at the top of my list when I come back to Chicago, though.
I did, however, manage to score the last bomber of 3 Floyds Imperial IPA at Jewel Osco last night. I brought it home and had it tonight with dinner and absolutely loved it. I see what you guys are saying. It's on the same level as Stone Ruination.
All in all, over the past weekend, I had around 10 new beers that I've never tried before. Not a bad haul.
I definitely returned to the south with the inspiration for a few new batches of homebrew.
