Somehow this opened up last month completely under our radar. In the upscaling West Town neighborhood just north of the United Center (I know itís upscaling because on the stoop of the empty building next door, someone left an empty Unibroue gift box instead of a paper bag of 20/20). We site says their "FotPour" is a 22 oz mug. FROZEN mug. I was there for a party for Omission, and they gave me bottles and a regular shaker, though. Stairwell to second floor wraps around a see-though keg cooler. Still plenty of BMC (it is posing as a Badger bar, after all), and there are tables with their own taps of Bud Light and 312, but also lots of labels like ATG, Brooklyn, Stone, 5 Rabbit, Evil Twin, and plenty of Belgians on tap, too. Prices ranged from $5 for the Bud family to $60 for a pour of Malheur or Bruery. This was a gluten-free event for which they had buffet dishes, including meaty Buffalo chicken wings, and a damn fine mac and cheese with pork butt, using GF pasta. I wasnít there on a "typical" night, but this seems like a good place to watch for.
