young meat market crowd on a busy neighborhood corner. inside was sports on a dozen different televisions and the bar area was pretty crowded (Friday night) with a mix of young professionals and d-bags and a lack of hipsters (a good thing or bad thing Iíll leave up to you). decided to sit on the patio and away from the headache-inducing noise and the crowd. beer quality was decent, probably 6-7/10. 4oz servings are nice to see. vibe is shit and is the only reason I wonít visit again.

A brief stop on the abbreviated Chicago beer tour with TheAlum and deyholla.

Nice patio area, but since it was pouring down rain, nobody sitting outside. Kind of dark inside on a late night, but still a pretty decent number of people. Kind of lax service at that point, more of a seat yourself situation. Larger restaurant with plenty of seating in the bar and main dining area, as well as a second room in the back.

The server was good. Though he did seem a bit surprised by my request to try ALL of the beers, though.

Beer quality on the whole was above average with a few winners and no real bad beers. Had a hot dog while we were here and it was quite good, though a little spendy at something near $10.

Overall, a good place and Iíd probably come back the next time Iím in Chicago.

Visited on Sunday 4th November at 11.45 for just over an hour. Pretty busy for a Sunday lunchtime I thought, perhaps this is the norm, but we grabbed 2 of the last 3 or so seats at the bar. There was a Chicago Bears game on the box. Around a dozen of their own beers on tap and a dozen or so guests, plus the best part of 100 bottles in the fridges behind the bar. All draft beer both home and guests were available in 4, 12 or 16 oz pours (16oz excluded on some of the stronger beers) which helps for rapid rate building! Appearance wise it comes over as a sports bar type affair. Service was excellent and we never had to wait on the next beer. Food sampled was just in the form of chicken wings which were fine but only warranted a 6/10.

Haymarket is a nice brew pub in Chicago. The brew area is enclosed in glass, making it very viewable. There is a great selection of house brews alongside some really nice micro bottles and taps. Our server seemed to not want to be at work, but the hostesses and others seemed very helpful. The outdoor seating is rather cramped, so we opted for inside despite the longer wait. There was a band, Environmental Encroachment, that warmed up throughout the place, by marching around (they were a marching band of sorts).

Haymarket is located in a large brick building in downtown Chicago on the corner of West Randolph and North Halsted. Metered street parking is available in the surrounding area, as is some free parking in front of the stores on Randolph.

The interior opens to the bar area, with a small space by the host stand devoted to merch. Beyond that is the bar on the right, with a view of the tap handles behind it. The left side of the room has table seating, and provides a view of the brewing equipment behind windows. Hanging lights, burnt sienna colored walls and TVs placed around the bar.

Haymarket has around 20 taps, including 16 of their own beers on my visit. They offer different serving sizes including samples. During my visit they had a Kolsch, Pils, a couple Pale Ales and Belgians, and a few IPAs, Barley Wine and a Smoked Porter. All of the beers were decent with a couple standouts.

Service on a weekday evening at the bar was good. The bartender was knowledgeable about their beer menu and made recommendations of other spots to visit in the area.

I did not have any food on my visit.

Overall this is a solid brewpub to visit in Chicago.

Visited for lunch on a Friday. Easy to find on Halstead and Randolph, good public transport access. Big place with a bunch of seats at the bar as well hightops and a more restaurant type room beyond. 17 house beers on draft with an impressive mix of styles and 9 guests. All beers are available as 4 oz and 12 oz drafts with lower abv beers also available as 16 oz and 20 oz. 32/64 oz growlers are available for the house beers. Also had a nice selection in cans and bottles with a Belgian focus. Friendly prompt service at the bar. I enjoyed my visit.

82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

The Haymarket is an absolute stop if you are in the area, anywhere near downtown. They are brewing up a storm, with about a dozen beers on tap, so I had to be selective. Their bottle selection was decent too. Very attractive environment inside, huge bar, very good service. They were brewing some unusual styles here, hoppy Belgians and the like.

Visited here on Dec. 6, 2011. Great spot! Beers were better than I was expecting, and anything on tap (house or guest beers) can be purchased in 4 oz sizes ranging from $1.25 - $3. Great way to try several beers in a single visit.

Easy to find location on corner with street parking, best to go by cab. Went to the bar on the right of building with a rough wood interior and tables and brewing equipment at the back. Got to sample all brews and a glass of water included. Good selection of brews of their own and good gust taps that are above average. Service is timely and attentive, with good knowledge of beers. Good bar food. Second time here and I will return when in city.

Very nice place in downtown Chicago. Quite a big place with a long bar on your right as you enter. Not very crowded and we got to seats at the bar right away, maybe since this was the first spring day in Chicago. Beer selection was very nice with 11 of their own beers on tap, plus 8-10 guest taps from Allagash, Port Brewing and more. They did not serve actual flights but all beers were available in small sampling glasses. Service was really good and the burgers were really tasty. A very nice experience and I will visit again if I come back to Chicago.
