Oh man was this place sweet. No swill to be found here. Awesome selection of strong beers and good belgians on tap. The West coast profile was a bit lacking though. Still, ambiance and value were great and everything tasted wonderful on tap. Met a nice guy there who was in BJCP and had a good time drinkin with him

This is quickly becoming my favorite beer bar in Chicago. Though, around here it can be kinda hard to chose. Great selection on tap. Great bottles. Great specials. The atmosphere on weekdays and Sundays is great. On weekends, every now in then it turns into an overcrowded sports bar but even then the staff will be patient and helpful. They are, every last one of them, knowledgeable beer geeks and they never get snobbish as they do at some other bars in town.

One of the best beer palaces in the gosh darn state. I especially like the Mendocino California beers available in bottles - Red Tail Ale and Eye of the Hawk.

Enjoyed the selection. Agree that it's a bit cramped and can be smoky. I was lucky to be by one open window. That was both good and made for a funny story as the wind picked up sending crap flying across the bar until it started raining and then it was hilarious. Had some mighty good beer there.

Corner bar feeling with world-class beer selection. Always crowded, but i've never had trouble getting a table. Incredible beer selection, proper glassware and temperature usually; live music unnecessary and annoying if you ask me. Sad to see so many people drinking Lite and Corona, but it IS a neighborhood bar I guess.

Great tap selection that is always rotated to bring in the freshest and latest beers. It can get a bit smokey, which is a detriment to any beer drinking location. Good selection of bottles too. I also had a Pauwel Kwak served in its trademark glass.

probably my fav beer bar in the country! has a great selection, good staff that knows what they are talking about and they give free beers if your nice(got a Rogue IMP ipa on new years for free!!!) my only complaints are that it should be a non smoking bar and a little larger.

Great place. Nice selection of imports and local micros on draft, served in the proper glassware. Kind of a cramped location but with a little bit of fun (not-too-cheesy) character to it from the maps and atlases decorating the walls. Service can be very good but can be a little condescending as well. Free pool table and live music occasionally, and this place gets really damn crowded most of the time. Also lacks air conditioning (from what I can recall), and while they open the doors and windows in the summer, it still gets hot as hell in there.

Lots of beers served in proper glassware. Great selection and reasonably priced. Gets very crowded and could be larger.
