I figured I should check this place before I order several rounds of Daisy Cutter next door. In retrospect I would probably scroll past this place and just go straight to Half Acre, or Bad Apple, or Fountain Head, or where ever. The service was nice enough and the tap selection was decent but it isnt very impressive compared to the places surrounding it.

not a place worth stopping at all, even if at Half Acre... a typical regular bar that tries to be trendby by having a few regularly available craft beers... scene is terrible, the music is so loud you canít think... PASS

Prices are reasonable, staff was welcoming, selection is okay but can be topped by walking across the street. The food is only slightly better than standar bar food. A decent option if you want to catch a soccer game.

A cozy corner bar on Lincoln Ave. The bartender was pretty nice, but the beer selection was less than impressive. Lots of macros and taps that are pretty common for the area. Prices were about average. The burger I had was mediocre. With the number of good beer bars within walking distance, this one should not be very high up on your list to visit.

This bar is a complete waste of time. Bad Apple is across the street, and Fountainhead is also a few blocks away. Beer selection is mediocre and no better than your typical corner bar. Last time I was in here, they were *out of Half Acre on tap*. Words cant describe the utter fail of that situation. SKIP IT!

Surprised this wasnít in the database yet. Located next to Half Acre, might be average in terms on Chicago bars, but I dug it. Pretty open, good amount of seating, standard decor, maybe 10 tvs or so. Decent selection overall. Had roughly 20 or so craft taps. 30 or so craft bottles. Service was good, server had a decent amount of beer knowledge. Decent pricing. Probably a good place to catch the game.
