Olga tracked down this place is a great recommendation to hit up after FoBAB. Great location on Division, close to my house and other hot spots. The inside looked new and very modern decor mixed with folksy cabin in the woods art (metal art and stuffed animals. The bathroom is very cool as the wood is so new it smells freshly cut. A decent amount of drafts and bottles, however the selection and quality isn’t the greatest. A ton of basic staples beers but I had a difficult time spotting stuff I either hadn’t had or wasn’t easily available anywhere else. The highlight of this place is the food; high end sausage joint. Deluxe offerings such as a foie gras corn dog, and ham peanuts. All the food was tasty and there several options that I would come back to try. The biggest disappointment about this place was the service. Our server seemed totally disinterested in helping us and didn’t know a damn thing about beer. She could not offer basic suggestions as to what was tasting good on tap right now, or even have suggestions. If you want to be a beer place gotta have better service.
This is a must stop for a meal and decent beer, probably wouldn’t come just to get a drink though.

Was thoroughly impressed when I stopped in here. My girlfriend moved right down the street and will be frequenting here when ever I visit. Haven’t tried the food yet, but the ambiance is nice and laid back although a bit dark at night. A great outside seating area if you can grab a seat... Selection was top of the line and two dollar samplers of any beer if you have the urge to tick. Service was a bit slow but still a great bar IMO.

Finally made it down here and gotta say, was impressed by the draft list. Pretty heavy on imports, kind of reminds me of the list at Local Option. Also has a fair number of locals as well. Food is definitely solid and worth it. Ambience is a bit meh as it was full of tools when I showed up and the service could use some work. Still, pretty solid overall and worth it for the beer. The $2 samplers and the 6 pack of samplers are a nice touch.

Stopped in on the way to FoBAB and was so impressed I made a point to stop in again on the way back to the hotel. A very nice tap selection and even the bottle selection seemed to have something new to try as well. We had a brunch in the morning with Kevin (Pailhead) and both of us thought it hit the spot and then some. My pigs in the blanket was very good. In the evening I had the Venison sandwich that was okay (too much fig and black currants) but the plate of onion rings rocked. Kevin liked his German sandwich and plate of fries. Timely service and good vibe. How did I not know about this place before? Easy access from the Blue Line... I am adding this to my list of places to must go in Chicago.
