A long bar type set up with a few tables in the back of the bar. Staff is experienced with their beer knowledge but can be slow to take orders. Constantly rotating tap list and they can have some very rare finds throughout the week (if you are lucky). Can be crowded during peak hours but its to be expected for the area. Worth stopping by, especially if you are looking for Three Floyds.

100+ bottles, and a good tap selection. Not just a focus on American craft brews, but imports from Belgium and elsewhere. Nice relaxed atmosphere. No food, unfortunately. Reasonable prices, but not cheap.

As others have said...this place has a really nice atmosphere...great decor...and a laid back attitude. All of which are perfect for enjoying their great beer selction and hanging out with friends. Iím glad I was able to squeeze this into one of my 8 craft beer visits in the 5 days I was in the Chicago area on a business trip. This was easily my second favorite beer bar of the trip (second only to Hopleaf). I highly recommend a visit here.

A superb bar in a residential area just out of the town centre but easily reachable by the CTA and not far away from Revolution. The ambience was perfect for a bar like this. Nice and dark and fairly quiet. Plenty of locals and tourists alike. The tap list contained some whales and nothing disappointed. The staff were helpful and friendly. I will return.

Ended up here by accident with some friends on a Friday. Loved the relaxed atmoshere, was the first place I had ever been too that let you order food in and loved that they had a selection of menus you could choose from. Tap selection was pretty good as were the bottles but overall its just a great place to chillax with friends.

Visited twice in 2010 and again in 2012.

Really down to earth nice place. Enough seating for the most part. Kind of dark which is kind of strange as they have a bunch of random magazines laying around.

Full bar with lots and lots of bottles with some interesting taps. You can always find something you havenít had but just like with any bar that has a ton of bottles you need to be wary of certian bottles (IPAs).

The service is really nice as well. The prices are about what you might expect for a place that knows their beer.

Would definitely visit again, but more for a place to hang out with friends than to try new beer.

I wasnít sure about this place as I emerged from the cab. It looked like a neighborhood dive bar populated by demonic hipsters. Well thatís what it is. The service is a bit to beerier than thou and the water glasses are essentially urine sample cups. Didnít have any food not with Pequodís delivering a notched box of pure deliciousness. The ambiance is awesome. Very laid back very comfortable. Itís the kind of environment beer was meant to be enjoyed. And the tap list. Very editorial with lots of stuff like Three floyds you canít find everywhere. I would definitely go back and not talk to anybody.
