Located just south of the Sears Tower in the loop, it can get very busy after working hours since a lot of people come here to drink after work. They have a good selection of 12 rotating taps and somewhat rare bottles. They occasionally have events where they can get hard to find local stuff such as bourbon county variants, etc. Service is good as long as it isnít crowded and prices are fair for the surrounding area.

This is a decent bar, with a decent draft list. It is clearly an after work spot for locals, and completely empties out once you get a little beyond happy hour on a week day. There were a couple of really nice beers on draft on my visit (including 4 Bells beers). I wasnít too impressed by the house beer from Two Brothers (Pale Frank). Iíd call this place a happy hour bar with a solid beer list, not a beer bar. My bartender was okay. The bar back (who apparently tends bar on other days) was extremely friendly. Food-wise, my bison burger was very tasty. Prices were also really good (especially because I was there on a Tuesday).

Enjoying a revolution anti-hero ipa on tap and six point resin imperial ipa served in proper glassware. Lisa the manager and beer coordinator is establishing good relationships with local breweries and the specials can't be beat. 2 dollars off all pints on Tuesdays with 16 beers on tap. Drinking an imperial ipa in the loop in proper glassware near the metra station for 5 bux? YES!! Please support this craft beer oasis in a virtual desert oasis of beer.

About half a block from the Sears Tower where I use to work, a great lunch place to go but its always super crowded, the food is really great for a bar... the beer selection is primitive, they are mostly a bmc bar, they have a few low tier craft beers (sam adams, blue moon, etc), but not a beer nerd destination

Was there for happy hour on a Thursday, but have been there for happy hour other days- same scene - almost every table full of after-workers getting drinks. Nothing bad, nothing good. Havenít tried the food. The beer selection was better than i thought it would be - a good 8-10 craft beers on tap, tried Daisy Cutter, Krank Shaft, and a Two Brothers beer I forgot the name of. Would go back, just because it is close to work
