Great little neighborhood bar. While their tap offering and menu are both smaller than the Division location, I prefer this one. Less bros. Plus they have a small beer garden. Negative points for actually being so small it's not always easy getting a place to sit or even stand on the weekends.

This is my favorite bar in all of Chicago. Food is good for bar food and they've got food specials most nights of the week. Staff is super friendly and they remember the neighbors and regulars. But the Beer!! If you love beer, you should come here.
Parker, who runs the place, is a serious beer snob, and the selection shows it. Probably the best and most diverse beer selection I've had at a bar so far in this city. At any point in time, there's a little of everything on tap, taking account of seasonal preferences. There's 10-15 beers on tap at a time and a bottle selection that's killer. All craft brews all the time (though they might have a few cans of PBR for people who don't care what they're drinking). My favorite part is that everything is changing all the time. From week to week (or even day to day if it's popular), the draft list is completely different, though there's usually at least one beer from each of the major local breweries, and the bottle selection tends to change aprox. month to month with a few standards staying constant. The prices range from reasonable to expensive, but then that's the range of beers they've got. I think the most I've paid for a beer on draft was $14 for the anniversary bourbon barrel aged Old Rasputin. Probably the most delicious stout I've ever tasted, with an ABV of 12% before bourbon aging.
It gets pretty noisy in the evening, so if you like to go to a bar that's a bit quieter and enjoy your tasty beer, go before 730.

This place was the last stop on my latest Chi-Town excursion. It's a small little place a few blocks north of the Logan Square train station. It comes off as a strange combination of dive bar/cozy neighborhood joint (if that makes sense). Up at the bar, I watched a bit of one of the football games in progress and perused the chalkboard. They were out of the two I had ventured there to try (they'd kicked the day before, apparently...dammit), but the bartender, who seemed pretty knowledgeable about her offerings, was accommodating, and patient with me as I made my decision for a replacement. The drafts were pretty nice, with the standout keg at the time being Meantime's Naval College Porter, which is what I settled on and got served in a nicely appropriate snifter (and at what seemed like a nice temperature for it, too...). The rest of the taps weren't really anything hullabaloo-worthy, but everything was solid and worthy of m time (were I not such a damned ticker...). The prices seemed pretty much in line with any other Chicago bar I've been to. Overall, this a great little place in the LS area, one I'm likely to be returning to in the future.
