I had a few drinks at this place whilst in Chicago as I was Holiday / Vaction. I had some really good beers the selection was great and great customer service. I must tried loads of beers due to me taking advantage of their 6oz pours which were priced at $3.50 - $4.00
Ate/drank here several times when in downtown Chicago for work for a week. Ambience is more restaurant than beer destination because it is a restaurant that offers a nice beer selection. Food okay; prices high but it is Chicago.
Visited a couple of times in February 2016. This is a big place and kind of industrial. Located at around one minute from my hotel, The Intercontinental. The selection was nice (114 beers), both local ones from Illinois, from other parts of the US and some international ones. Beer flights were available. The service was fast and polite. The best beer that I had was the Bells Hopslam, what a great one.
Bunch of brews on tap. Giant bar with a ton of seating and an outdoor patio overlooking a park/garden/bum lounge. Great selection. Ordered gumball head, stale. Ordered Grapefruit sculpin which was a touch better. This is the reason you have a tap list and not a shotgun. Prices are a bit high but you’re on the mag mile/river north. Servers were good for what this place is. Middle of the road brewpub food. Nothing terrible. Rare beer list with 3/5 out of stock. Ummm, not much else to add. It’s decent. Wouldn’t order hoppy or fragile beer here.
Very good selection of American brews, including a lot of local beers. But lack some great American breweries (Alesmith, Farmstead Hill, Cigar City, Maine Beer...) and some microbreweries surprises! Service is fine and it’s possible to order in small degustation glasses. Worth the visit according to me.
Visited on a day drinking trip, wings were excellent. The place is full of different beer, they had many of my favorites but I decided to sample 6 or 7 that I had not had before. The service was outstanding, very professional and friendly. Be sure to visit the Jack Brickhouse statue and wgn walk of fame just steps from the entrance.
