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.

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.

One of my favorite places to have a beer. For the past year or so they have done an excellent job rotating the taps and have added a significant amount of bomber bottles. If your into variety, they have it, if your into quality taps, they have it. Word around the street is that they are adding even more taps, which means more reasons to stop in.

I love the atmosphere here, great live music, decent eats. The beer list is pretty big, though there arent really any super special beers, though there are many countries represented. A good place to hang out with friends.

one of Chicagoís hidden gems...best selection Iíve seen, behind Map Room and Hopleaf, but less busy and less yuppie...long list of beers, from many, many countries...juke box has good songs, and other patrons have good taste...photo booth is fun

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!

A great selection of beers on tap as well as in bottle and opposed to the maproom in chicago, you can actuallly walk around without getting stepped on or getting beer spilled on you. With a side room for music it is pretty perfect. They donít have the greatest selection when it comes to food, but they do have free popcorn. They also have water cooler where you can get water as you wish instead of embarrasingly asking for it at the bar. Itís nice to go to a place where they actually want you to enjoy the drinks instead of allowing you to walk away puking.

I have a bit of a biased to this place as it is my neighborhood bar. The selection is no Maproom and the ambience is pretty standard but for a bar within stumbling distance I canít complain. The food is excellent "bar food" type food and affordable (the nachos kinda suck though). The beer selection is good an is always changning. They recently started having live music and live band kareoke that is a blast! Good place for good times.

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.

I gotta admit I have a bit of a grudge against this place. I went once with a friend and got a round of 90 min IPA which was at least a dollar overpriced. More so than that, it wasnít even 90 Min IPA; it was some bland bitter not even remotely on planet DFH. On top of this, our server absolutely refused to believe we had anything but 90 Min IPA and wouldnít exchange them or refund us our money... So bugger this place because of that. There is a decent selection but it focuses too much on having crappy lagers from third world nations rather than just good beer. I find the staff is a little snotty and, as per my story, not entirely all there as far as beer is concerned.
