This place is alright but the beer is definitely the main attraction. They make some great American style beers and Belgians. Their guest taps are great and they have a good bottle selection too. I could not see a beer geek leaving this place disappointed. that being said, the atmosphere is just sort of generic and brew-pubby, which I suppose is a hard thing to complain about in a brew pub but is definitely not a plus to me. I didnít eat but the menu is pretty standard pub fare as well. (A friend who did order food told me it wouldnít be worth going back just to eat.) One thing that was quite nice was that you can get all their beers in 4, 12 or 16 ounce sizes (and some in 20 oz) for the same price per ounce so you donít pay a premium for smaller servings. Our server was quite nice and seemed to know about the beers and there are a lot of good restaurants in the area so eat somewhere else and stop in for after dinner drinks.

Been here several times. Beer and food is great. Selection and service are always on par - several of their own with an occasional guest on tap, but loads of guest brews in bottles. Worth a stop if youíre in the area.

Surprisingly small, typical American brewpub vibe in an area that is essentially downtown - obviously extremely popular, as it was packed on a Monday afternoon - however, the service was incredibly efficient and attentive - they know how to handle the crowd and keep beer in your glass at the bar - good selection of house brews, with an even split of Belgian and American styles, plus a dozen guest taps that are mostly local, plus some well-selected, semi-rare craft beers from around the country - really nice selection, really - with the exception of some of the stronger beer, all of e beer is available in 4, 12, 16, or 20 ounce pours (for mostly reasonable prices) - cool beans - did not try the food - quality of the house beers is inconsistent, but their pils is solid, so the brewer does have some skill - overall a very solid spot.

Pretty good atmosphere, food is great, I recommend the bratwurst. Their guest drafts are alright. I had a couple of their beers, but nothing special.

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.

Great place in ChiTown, great beets in tap with a healthy dose of guest beers, nice touch. Lots of seating, good beer, excellent service.

This place definitely has a sports bar vibe going on up front, but they also have a dining area, and a back area where they often hold performance art events. Thankfully itís not too "bro-y" a sports bar, just more of a chill sports bar. The staff is friendly and beer savvy. With a smile, the bartender said "yeah, they íforceí us to sample everything." They can be a touch slow when things get crowded - but then again, what bar doesnít? If youíre offended easily by waiting an extra minute, donít go if the Blackhawks or Bulls are playing a home game - this is a popular pregame / postgame dinner spot. Roughly ten of their beers are tapped, with an additional collection of guest bottles to choose from as well as wines for the non-beer visitors (who?). 4oz samples run between $1.5-$4 depending on the beer and full pours fall between the $5-$10 range depending on the style - roughly on par for city prices. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. Definitely worth a check.

Huge place, fairly loud & rowdy, but not intrusive. Split into two areas that could each be restaurants of their own. Haymarket makes some great beers with a big selection of their own brews. Had the Thirsty Ale on tap (barrel aged raspberry stout) and it was incredible. The grilled chicken salad was great as well. Good service. All around an awesome stop in Chicago, very underrated beers, I think. Iíll be back.

Went with a group, the selection of beer was really good, started out with about 10 of the 4 ouncers then graduated to big boy glasses. The wings were great and everything everyone else got looked good as well. I especially liked the sweet potato tater tots I was stealing off everyone, they were delightful. I plan to return to rate the beers I donít remember details of since we were having such a good time, and the sausage plate I would like to try (made in house they say). Extra points for the Fred G Sanford looking truck parked out front.

Strong selection of house brews, especially if you like a Belgian influence. Good selection of guest taps. Not especially excited about the food. Fairly typical bar faire.
