If you love traditional beers from their respective countries, served at the proper temperature, in the correct glassware, this if the ultimate place to be. Love the hard to find beers, traditional beers, and classic beers served here. Take in 5 or 6 beers and then go to a Cubs home game by way of 4 minute cab ride. Can’t really express how great a place this is. Just bring your VISA, things can get real ugly real fast in terms of $$$.

Venerable stalwart of the Chicago Beer Scene, along with Map Room. Additions of the next-door space, dining rooms, and kitchens over the years have only improved the destination. Bartenders are also less surly than back in the day when this was a one room space. Easy to get to off of the Red Line. Strict no kids and carding policy. You will be carded even if you are obviously over 60. You make me feel so young! Acre and Jerry’s are closest other destinations to Hopleaf, but on a crawl you could also consider trying to hit Half Acre, Bad Apple and Fountainhead. The Damen bus actually ends in Andersonville.

Probably my favorite bar/restaurant in Chicago. They might have the best selection of beers in Chicago. Food is great, and staff is friendly and helpful.

Easy to get there from downtown. Epic Belgian and local selection, also featuring and off-menu menu. Nice food and ambiance make it a must stop in Chicago!

Really awesome beer bar with a focus on Belgians. They also had fresh zombie dust on tap when I was there. Tonnes of taps, great service and really good food. This is a good one.

This place is sick. Crazy amount of beer available, including plenty of really hard to find beers. Generous with tap tastings. Awesome beer drinking atmosphere. Just go here.

Small bar with great city feel. Servers were a little cold, but that’s the big city. Food looked really good and people raved about it. Most importantly they had great beers on tap that bridge the gap between Ohio & NE and west of Chicago. Of course they also had the great Chicago brews and great Belgiums.
