Good pizza, good beer, well worth dealing with the yuppies. Prices are reasonable, particularly when they have deals. Rarely have the exact same lineup each week. Nice.

To me, the 6-hour drive each way to Chicago is totally worth it, if only in search of their world-class wheat beers. They also have some of the best [NY-style] pizza in the land. Pricy? Without a doubt. But trust me, itís worth every penny. Piece always boasts a good range of styles and plenty to choose from, so plan on spending a while here. Thereís no cask, unfortunately, which reminds me to start a petition, demanding they start. A few guest taps also appear here, ranging from macros to anything by Three Floydís and Capital, to name a few. I donít hesitate to say that Piece has slowly, but surely, earned its reputation in such a wonderful beer town, and will continue to do so if they continue to churn out such a quality selection. Much of their stuf is hit and miss (steer clear from both their "Kolsch" and "Pils"), which are dirty, "please the masses" messes, but upon each visit, youíre sure to find something to keep you grinning from ear to ear for at least a few hours. Iím boosting the ambience to a "4" due to the fact that all they played last time I was there, Iron Maiden, The Replacements, and The Velvet Underground dominated the stereo speakers loudly and clearly.

Overall, I like the place because not only do they serve their own beers but has some outstanding guest beers too (Kazoo Bells Two Hearted on tap for example). They are known for the pizza, but I am more a fan of thicker crust pizza. The service was good but the bartender seems to talk as if I know nothing about beer (It is like a Chimay if you heard of that...which I respond, which one Red, White or Blue...itís like Chimay...duh...finally she comes back and says it it like Chimay Red, now I got something to work with). Still overall, a good place to watch a game and enjoy above average brews. So thumbs up!

Piece was fine, and their brews were largely unremarkable, except for their massive hefe called Big íN Curvy, which had an immense wheaty nose. Well done! The bartender chick didnít demonstrate any knowledge of beer or have much to say about their offerings, which I thought was a bit sad. Nice enough interior - wasnít able to try the food.

Visited in July 2004. All the beers were good to very good (a nice kolsch, yeah!) and the pizza terrific. Like the modernist look for the most part, the waitresses were mostly very cute but seemed bored...Iíll definitely go back, but itís no Goose Island.

Was in there not long after it opened (I think). Though she didnít know a lot about beer, the woman behind the bar was quite friendly and let us sample some of the beers for free - which is a big plus in my book. If only there was more atmosphere there and a wider selection. I was impressed that the staff did suggest the better beers, so they either knew SOMETHING or had been well trained - the brief conversation tended to make me think it was training.

Piece brews some very respectable beers, and serves a great pizza alongside them. Located in the heart of Wicker Park, the clientele tends to be a bit trend-setting and pretentious, so itís best to avoid making a trip there on a weekend night (unless youíre into that sort of thing). The restaurant is nicely decorated, including some of part-owner Rick Nielson (Cheap Trick)ís guitars (ask marinaro500 about this).
