    Re: Binny's Is Expanding.

    Dang. I held my breath while quickly reading the opining post. I was hoping for something in Peoria or the QC area.

    Re: Binny's Is Expanding.

    I think this is great news. I live in Madison, WI. I hope that Binny's will bring extra allocations of the limited whiskies into the state.

    No longer using a trip to Binny's as an excuse to go to Chicago is a drawback. Now, Giordano's will need to expand into Madison. Yes, I know they're in dire financial straits.

    It won't, unless Binny's figures out how to drastically increase the sales of everyday Sazerac products, the amount of BTAC that WI is allocated won't really change that much. (And you can always find BTAC sitting around this state, if you know where to look.)

    And Julian ain't gonna have more Rye for us, either.

    I can only see other WI retailers lose some of their allocation as Binny's steals their market share. You'll see a shift, but not much total increase. So Maybe Riley's and Steve's get less, as Binny's gets some of their cut.

    I am looking forward to their barrel purchases. Having a wide selection of FR1B will be fun.

    When you use logic, you crush dreams.

    The single barrel selections will be a fantastic addition. I hope they bring in more of the single malts for which I am always driving down to Chicago. A lower price on Ardbeg Uigeadail would be nice, too. It's always around $90 in Madison, and Binny's South Loop usually has it for $70.

    Also, I asked @BinnysBev about their Madison expansion plans, yesterday. This was the reply: "It's a plan, but a long-term plan with few specifics."

    Just out of curiosity, what does Binny's bring to the table that you're not getting from Ray's/Sendik's/Discount/Otto's, besides the wide array of 4R single barrels?

    I'm not sure if this is the case with the other 4, but binny's is a big proponent of the hand picked/personally selected barrel program.

    Elmer, buffalo trace, tons of 4 roses bottlings, rock hill farms, blantons, elijah craig, knob creek single barrel, weller, willett and eagle are all available in bottlings that were personally selected by binnys. Usually, but not always, the binny's bottling is better than the standard bottlings you find at the store.

    just another place to go really. Rays is by far my favorite, but it is always fun for me to stop by the others.

    I agree. The private bottlings are the one plus.
