This place is a landmark for me. Perhaps the best beer bar in Chicago. Since the day theyíve opened they have been busy and for good reason. 32 rotating taps and hundreds of beers in bottle. The food is good without being to expensive and they often do special pairings. The cicerone, Ria, always makes chooses an excellent selection for their arsenal of beers.

Like dining in a mountain lodge, except this lodge has foie gras corn dogs among their other delectable entrees. Great beer selection, a target rich environment and a cool name, where else would you spend Friday night?

Iíve been to bangers&lace several times now and really enjoy it. They usually have around 25 beers on tap with the beers being pretty wide and diverse. Their bottle list was really good and the prices were very fair. I was able to get a bottle of bam noire for $20. The draft list is a bit more on the expensive side, but Iím more than willing to pay since the selection is so good. The service has generally been pretty good when Iíve come here. I havenít been here when itís real busy, but Iíve never had a problem getting a beer when needed

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.

This place is great. The ambiance is great with a casual atmosphere. I have never been there when it is super busy, but I could imagine that is pretty comfortable as well, as the layout seems to make a lot of sense. The bartenders are quick, and seem to know what they are talking about. As far as selection is concerned, there is always at least one draft that I have never seen in the city before, and the bottle selection is not massive, but of very high quality and well priced. I havenít tried the food, but I hear that it is pretty solid. Oh yeah, it is awesome to be able to try all of the beers with the smaller pours. Overall, I believe that this is on par with the best beer bars in Chicago.

Heavily seasonal rotating selection of both small and medium production European beers and American microbrews. Not much seating space, dominated by one long communal table in the middle - donít go here for privacy. Food is high quality sausage inspired bar food. I particularly recommend the truffle grilled cheese and the gourmet corn dog which, at $3 is one of the best deals in town.

Was thoroughly impressed when I stopped in here. My girlfriend moved right down the street and will be frequenting here when ever I visit. Havenít 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.
