Visited August 14, 2013.

I walked by this place on the way to Revolution and decided that I should stop in on my way back. This definitely has an old feel to it (both the decor and the help). Pretty good beer list over all but I went with a Lagunitas beer. I ended up sitting next to a guy named Bob who gave me the history of the place and the problems that theyíve had with opening the patio. Fun place but Iím not sure it will be on my list of regular stops in Chicago, though the pints were pretty cheap.

Iíve heard great things about this place for awhile so finally walked the mile and half up there, at too busy of an intersection, actually a bit tough to get too... the ambiance is a throw back to craft beer bars of 10 years ago, dirty and old, and full of people who just liked beer to be cool and trendy, a couple small tvs and a band room where someone was playing... 3 chalk boards show their drafts, roughly 20 beers, nice selection of locals and hard to find stuff (including $6 pours of Angelís Share, the best Angel Share version Iíve ever had), a huge tickerís dream chalk board lists beers from each country they have (Including not see easy to tick places like Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Greece, Croatia, and Slovakia)... service was meh, the bartender was quick to arrive but knew very little of beer, and had no idea what Cantillon was despite having several bottles listed on their bottle list... food wise, after bad reviews on here, and seeing food there I didnít try it(look disgusting) but they did have some overly salted popcorn to munch on...not a fan of the this older hipster wannabe crowd but I would come back... As a side they are CASH ONLY so come prepared

Big 2-room dive bar with eclectic decoration; I got lucky and went on a really slow, quiet night and really enjoyed the place but could see how it might not be so fun when packed. The beer selection is heavy on crap beers from third world countries, but unlike that at, say, Old Chicago, here youíll see 4 beers from Guatemala that youíve never heard or, Windhoek from Namibia and Zagorka from Bulgaria. And they do have some good beers, and prices that are competitive with other great Chicago beer bars. No, itís not on the level of Map Room or Hopleaf, and the service seems a bit distant, but itís a fun place.

Wound up here when they wouldnít let me into Map Room. Interesting enough lay out, though a bit odd. Pretty high quality tap list that is pretty extensive. They do keep them fresh, though I wasnít a huge fan of the crowd, but oh well. Iíll have to check it out again in the future.

This joint looks like, and is, a small neighborhood bar. But once you walk in, scan the locals drinking their lites and other piss-waters, your eyes are arrested by the blackboard on the wall in front of you. On it is a listing of over 100 bottled beers (everyone fresh, that Iíve had) from all around the world. On a smaller blackboard on the adjoining wall is a hefty list of available micro bottles. Pick out a designated driver, then dive into a variety of new beers. The folk behind the bar know their stuff, and theyíre friendly & helpful with questions... even should you tend to get a bit obnoxious as the night wears on. (Thatís never been my case.) On some weekends thereís live music, and after some heavy sampling, you find yourself in the middle of it, whatever the sound. A truly fun, flavorful time... albeit in a grungy kind of a place.

This place is nice. They have beer catagorized by the country so you could pretty much take a beer trip around the word. Diffrent beers than the usual belgium, german, american micros. Maproom still kicks this places ass!

Kind of a sketch place. Decent beer selection with a wall of countries and the beer from them. Free popcorn. Cash only was not fun but varying prices. Bottle of Abyss $20.

seperated into two rooms, one of which houses a band and the other a short bar with a right angle. pretty long tap list and longer bottle list, easy to read large chalkboards list all the taps and bottles with bottles broken down by country (with the USA being the longest and getting its own board). talkative bartender offered me the newest stuff he had and seemed to know what was happening. you wont get killed on a saturday night and acoustics from the room next door are enough under control so you dont go mad at the bar.

This place is really dingy looking with a small sized room attached with a stage for music acts. They have a huge international selection in bottles displayed in a cool wooden cooler. Their draft list has a lot of special things on it. Itís super neighbor-hoody, friendly, and charming, but itís not a place I would take a girl on a first date.

Iíd qualify this as a hipster bar - which isnít necessarily a bad thing. Itís got an old-timey "built with my own two hands" type feel to it. They have a tiny music venue attached which can be hit or miss. Great selection of taps and bottles - more so on bottles as they bring in beers from all over the world - which rotates regularly. Routinely busy, but youíll never wait long for a drink - their bartenders work well as a team to cover the patrons. Tough to say on the value, They have some good deals and specials, but at the same time have no problem charging a hefty fee for a 10oz or smaller pour. They do have food, mostly standard bar fare, but I didnít sample it. They also have a popcorn machine that patrons can use to pop there own snack at no charge - which is great from a snacking point of view ... although after my nose became flooded with popcorn aromas, all my beers started to smell buttery - so thatís a push, and I felt it unfair to judge them on food. You come here for the beer selection and maybe some live music.
