Visited for lunch on a Thursday. Bigger space with a large U shaped bar with tables all around. Seemed new and well worn at the same time, comfortable space. The place was almost entirely dead when I arrived. Picked up some as lunch progressed. Service was nice and knowledgeable. 11 of their own beers, nice selection of guest taps. They do 5 oz samples of all their beers in mini-nonic pint glasses, which I appreciated. I had the Italian Sausage pizza which was a little sloppy, though the sausage and crust were great. Nice place, would hit it a bunch if I lived nearby.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Fairly busy on a Monday evening, but still spots at the bar. Parking seems to be a challenged, but I just poached the lot for Vas Foremost, which worked out well. Really solid service; European style in that there really isnt a waitperson "assigned" to you -- they are all happy to help. Taplist was pretty solid; didn’t check the bottles. They ran out of Deth’s Tar the day before, which was a bummer. Everything available as 5oz samples, starting at $2, going up to $5 for some of the BA offerings. Food was actually pretty darn good. Definitely a place I would hang in if I was a local.

Typical larger brewpub ambiance. Good selection of beers covering a smart variety of styles. Guest taps were wisely chosen as well. It was hoppin but not too slammed and we got attentive service. The bacon fat popcorn looks amazing but I was so full I couldn’t think about eating solids. The beer I tried was solid. Recommended.

Fun, open air all wood interior with large round table wooden bar. Custom fist caryatid columns on the bar. Excellent gastropub level food. Pork belly and egg sandwich was excellent, pesto chicken sandwich was loved by the fiance. The fries here were dope. Service was quick, friendly, was able to keep sample pours organized unlike many bartenders I encounter. Atmosphere was relaxed. Fun place. Beers were above average but nothing was outstanding. Number of house beers on tap was large, enough to keep anyone busy.

I liked this place and recommend going out of the way for it. It was fairly busy on an ordinary weeknight, yet we were still able to get a nice table and great service. Though not fancy, the bar is a lovely three sided affair, and several tables are lined up differently to get some privacy. People were hanging out outside. The ceiling had unusual beautiful tiling. Some great guest taps, which only enhance the 60’s environment of sharing. Their own brews were very good Good bottle selection. I understand the food is pretty good, and superior to the other bars.Music was pretty loud

Very crowded place on a Tuesday evening. Nice selection of very good beers. Maybe this place could be paid a visit again. Close to our accommodation...

Visited here on Dec. 29, 2011. Tremendous spot! About a dozen house brews (which were excellent) and a few other guest taps. Extremely friendly and knowledgable waiter. Flights/samples available at $2/5 oz pour, which is great. Tried the margarita pizza and the cheddar ale soup - both were fantastic. I love this place.

Easy to find location with street parking. Went to the bar in the center of building with a rough wood interior and brewing equipment at the back. Got to sample all brews and a glass of water included. Good selection of brews that are average to above. Service is timely and attentive, with good knowledge of beers. Did not have food.

This place us usually jam packed. Very cool atmosphere, nice tables, very new look. At the back is big glass plane where you can see the brewery. They had 6 of their own brews, 6 or 7 guest taps and probably 30-40 bottles. Their own brews were all pretty good, I got a tasting flight a very good deal. The guest taps were ok, guest bottles were so-so. Decent amount of bottles but a lot of semi macro’s that I’m not a huge fan of, but some trappists too so pretty decent. The service was really good, server was nice, and sorta knowledgeable. He knew a lot about there beer but I’d venture to say not a ton about beer in general as he commented he thought our table of 3 BA’s were in the beer industry based on tableside conversation. The food was the downside of the place. Bar food galore. A really nice bacon fat popcorn appetizer but everything else was so-so. Great atmosshere for a local brew pub. There brews were really good and I will be going back soon.

We stopped in for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The space feels big and open, with a rectangular bar in the middle and lots of tables. They had 15 house brews and a guest tap. The beers were good and sample size pours were offered for each. Prices were fair. Most of us ordered burgers for lunch, which were really large and tasty. The staff was very friendly and accommodating of our party of 8. Nothing extraordinary, just a really good all-around brewpub experience.

A big fan of this Chicago brewpub as well. Food is very solid and so is the beer. Add in always interesting guest taps and good service there isn’t too much to complain about here. Never seems to get too loud and service has always been solid for me. It tends to be a bit pricey but another great Chicago brewpub.
