Best beer bar in Chicago hands down, one of the best tap lists in the world, lacking on bottles...25 drafts, always local fff, always something random from Denmark, always an awesome sour, sometimes a Cantillon... this is the place to go in Chicago... its never busy, only downside is so-so bar food, its also expensive

Unfortunately this joint is too swinginí! I missed out on Founders KBS the same day they released it on tap BUT they have such an amazing draught selection it didnt really matter. HIGHLY recommended to all beer lovers, local or non-local. Food menu reflects typical bar grub that may or may not accentuate your beer experience. You come to this joint for the BEER though! Ill definitely be back.

If you are into beer, and I mean really into beer, then you must visit this place. It helps if you like metal and loud music in general. Awesome tap list that is always turning over. The owner knows his beer like nobodyís business and will talk you head off about the subject if you get him going. This is the kind of place that almost feels like a dive at times, but never disappoints on the beer front. As for decor, think lots of Miller High Life neon signs and then a huge Mikkeller neon sign right above the bar. For the FFF event that they did in the fall, I think they managed to get the whole brewpub selection on tap (well, almost). Not the cheapest place to drink, but the quality of the beers more than makes up for that.

Good selection, but I was a little disappointed that they didnít have 2 of the 4 beers I was expecting them to have based on ther availablity list. But the two that I had were excellent. I was also expecting a nice bottle menu, none offered. 24 excellent beers on tap makes this place a top beer bar. Canít top Eulogy in Philly.

I visited this place on two separate occasions. Seemed pretty mellow and laid back. Lots of great beers on tap, so I didnít even see the bottle list. Pretty busy during the mid evenings, and a lot of people were enjoying the food. I didnít try any, but it looked good. The prices are pretty much in line with other area bars. Always worth a visit if youíre nearby!

Now this is a bar that I would be at every day if I lived in Chicago. 20+ taps of incredible beers. Bartender really knows his stuff. Great atmosphere and very laid-back attitude. Kind of small which I like. Jeopardy went on the TV followed by music of every genre. All around fun time. Menu looked great but we didnít have anything that night. Nearby, definitely check it out.

Been going to LO for a couple years now... one of the best taplists in the city. Staff is great, and offer samples even if you donít ask. Cajun side of the menu is good, some food is a little pricey. Draft quality is high, and the selection constantly rotates. An unlikely find in lincoln park, near Goose, Binnys, down the street are Kith & Kin, and Vrai Amour.

Find this place. Taps are the best you will see, very unique selection. Had 6 Mikkellers on while I was there. Staff was really nice.
Great food, had sword fish tacos. Went back more then once while on vacation in Chicago for a week. Will return when I go back. Located near the University, watch were you park.
