This was our final stopping point for craft beer on our penultimate evening in Chicago - and we enjoyed ourselves so much that we ended up dining here as well. We opted for quesadillas to share for starters, and I followed with skate wing, both...More

We were out in the Lincoln Park area and decided to quench our thirst. We had a friendly accommodating bartender that served us ice cold beers. They have a great craft beer selection. We tried the wings and tater tots and they were excellent. The...More

Friday afternoon 5pm and this place was totally empty. Strange. Anyway there were couple of new American beers for me. They also had some beers brewed for them. Beer list was quite nice but European beers are not that rare for me. Dark and somewhat...More

A classic Chicago beer spot with great beer and great staff. Constantly changing draft list and knowledgeable staff. You don't feel like a snob hanging out here though plus the music helps.

Went here on a Saturday night and sat at the bar for a pint. Staff is very nice and friendly but the atmosphere is certainly rough...In a fun way! The rotating craft selection is huge! Overall a very fun time.

Had this place on my list of brewpubs to visit on a trip to Chicago. Chicago is such a friendly city but we walked in this pub and felt so unwelcome! A blackboard full of interesting sounding beers but no information on the beers, including...More

Of course the beer is incredible, and varied. Lots of international choices, as well as the 'local options'. ;) What makes this place special is the atmosphere. Sort of ambient metal and filled with friendly people. We went when it wasn't too busy (mid-afternoon), so...More

We stopped here for drinks after dinner last week and what a cool little find! They have a nice beer list, including some of their own. We tried a few different kinds and enjoyed them all. We bought a couple of bombers to take home...More
