This is a great neighborhood bar with a great overall ambience and feel. They specialize in beers from around the world bottled. They have an excellent draft selection with two dozen beers on tap With plenty of craft beers. The food is regular bar food but thereís always popcorn ready for you. They also have a side room for live music. This service is great gives you a regular Chicago feel!

This place has gone through a lot of changes since Iíve lived in the area. On my last visit, they had a huge draft list and the popcorn was flowing freely. Iíd pop in here again given the opportunity.

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.

Very friendly place with lots of great beers, both in bottles and cans. Very unpretentious and much more spacious than the Map Room. Gets some things Iíve never seen before in Chicago. Very friendly bartenders and staff. They begrudgingly put sports on TV when something important is on, but youíre more likely to see the Discovery Channel or Nat Geo on the flatscreens.

Quenchers definitely has one of the largest beer selections in Chicago. While tap selections are generally very good, having so many things in bottles means that many are not very good. Cool old-timey wood coolers with glass doors. Live music/comedy/open mics every night. The bar is separate if you donít want to participate. Bar tenders are usually knowledgeable and accommodating. Food, when Iíve had it, has not been memorable. Cheap, though, so Iíll give íem that. A little grimy with colorful people watching and a ton of beer makes Quenchers a great place to stop.

My favorite neighborhood bar! Iíve been coming here since I first started going to bars (which is a long time), and Iíve always felt welcomed. They have close to 300 beers from around the world in stock every day, about 18 of which are on tap! They also have a friendly staff, daily specials, free popcorn and a room for live bands. They are open until 2am, 3 on Saturdays. They do have food, but I come here to drink and to chill. I suggest you try it. Youíll like it!

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.

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.

Purely a matter of taste, but the ambiance put me off from the start - I donít mind the occassional dive-bar, but Quencherís just didnít agree with me. Moving on to the important matters, the beer selection is quite large, but also contains a lot of forgetable selections (no offense to Guatemalans, but I really have no interest in their beer). It just seems that a bunch of random selections were thrown in just for national varietyís sake, as opposed to going for stylistic diversity or quality. Finally, the glassware is inappropriate (I had an interesting conversation with a staffer over what a tulip glass is), and the service can be very spotty at times, though largely friendly. Worth a visit if you live in the area, but if youíre just visiting stick to places like the Map Room, Hopleaf, Goose Island, etc.

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
