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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

This is a nice brewpub brasserie with an upscale pub menu, good service, samplers ŗ la carte (1.25 to 3$ per 4 on. samples) and a great selection of offerings, from good to excellent, with around 10 guest taps thrown in, and loads of bottles. An excellent place, for those coming to Chicago for a beer hunt!

I stopped by here with all my BA buddies to check out the Founders event. Not a bad location over in the West Loop, a quick walk from downtown. I walk in and holly cow, this place is huge; a bar area to the right, a table area, then a huge bar in the back with more tables. Iím not really down with the decor. Modern, spacious, lots of wood and metal, not much decorations. Feels more like a regular Chicago chatch bar than it does a brewpub. I like more brewpubs with more personality, cozier environment. Iím just not totally feeling it...Service was decent but slow, granted it was a crazy release so I canít comment too much, I donít think they were prepared for the crowd that came...They had 11 Founders on tap, a couple other good things. None of their beer was ready, so Iíll have to come back to re-evaluate. They have a big bottle list, about 50. Iím not impressed though. BELGIAN heavy with almost exclusively Belgian and American Belgian style beers. Most everything that was there were staples I can get anywhere. They did have quite a few Lost Abbey beers but they were over 20 per bottle...I didnít have the food but it looked pretty good, above average bar food. Iíve got re-try this place when the beer comes out, but right now I can tell this isnít a haunt I will be frequenting much unless their beer is unreal. Just not the right scene or feel. Re-visit I came back they released some beers. Solid beers, nothing special yet. Iíll be back in a few months. Guest draft list was sick though, tons of awesome ipas (hop rod rye, dreadnaught, dc)

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.
