Haymarket is by far the best craft brewery and pub resturaunt in the city. Winner of several medals during the 2011 calendar year, Haymarket easily produces some of the best beer in the country. Master Brewer Peter Crowley is a genius when it come sto creating flavors using some of the best ingredients available. The wait staff is rock solid 100% when it comes to customer service. Everyone is friendly, and they treat every customer with respect and kindness. I will keep coming to Haymarket as long as they don’t change a thing!
Haymarket is great. Love the staff and Pete Crowley is a fantastic brewmaster. Their brews are always top notch. The food is great and a good value, however the menu could use a bit more variety. The best addition to the neighborhood last year! Definitely visit if in Chicago.
Went with a group, the selection of beer was really good, started out with about 10 of the 4 ouncers then graduated to big boy glasses. The wings were great and everything everyone else got looked good as well. I especially liked the sweet potato tater tots I was stealing off everyone, they were delightful. I plan to return to rate the beers I don’t remember details of since we were having such a good time, and the sausage plate I would like to try (made in house they say). Extra points for the Fred G Sanford looking truck parked out front.
Tons of in house beers (though some were rather pricey), mixed with about a dozen guest taps, mostly from the West Coast and local. I was really happy with the fact that they do beers in 4, 8, and 16 oz sizes, which are perfect for trying their massive selection. The bartenders were highly knowledgeable, and really added to the experience. Check this out if you are visiting town as it is well worth it, just be ready to sample tons of beer.
This place definitely has a sports bar vibe going on up front, but they also have a dining area, and a back area where they often hold performance art events. Thankfully it’s not too "bro-y" a sports bar, just more of a chill sports bar. The staff is friendly and beer savvy. With a smile, the bartender said "yeah, they ’force’ us to sample everything." They can be a touch slow when things get crowded - but then again, what bar doesn’t? If you’re offended easily by waiting an extra minute, don’t go if the Blackhawks or Bulls are playing a home game - this is a popular pregame / postgame dinner spot. Roughly ten of their beers are tapped, with an additional collection of guest bottles to choose from as well as wines for the non-beer visitors (who?). 4oz samples run between $1.5-$4 depending on the beer and full pours fall between the $5-$10 range depending on the style - roughly on par for city prices. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. Definitely worth a check.

Stopped by to drink some beers while we waited for Au Cheval. Really great selection of 15 of their own beers and many more guest beers. I can’t really complain about any of what they had to offer.
Showed up at 6pm on a Thursday and the place was starting to fill up. Easy train ride from Clark/Lake near where we stayed. 12 of their beers on tap! Various sizes pours - from 4 oz to 22 ounce! Solid burger options and kid options. I thought all the beers were great.
