SmallBar Division Street has been on my radar for many years now, and I finally made the trek off the blue line to check it out, glad I did.
It's a small thin restaurant/bar with wooden floors and bar stool style tables. It was around 1:00 in the afternoon when we arrived and there was one other gentlemen in the bar. The bartender was very attentive and knew his stuff. We got to chat quite a bit and he definitely knew his beer. After a bit of a conversation, we realized we had me at the Northdown Tavern about earlier this year...
The tap selection is about a 3.8 or so compared to some of the other beer bars in Chicago. A nice, diverse list with a bit for everyone. The bottle list is probably about the same. Some nice stuff in a bottle, but nothing that really stood out to me, and not much that wasn't available at a few other stops along my journey.
We shared the cheese plate which had 3 components that when together very well. It was a nice, small app, but again, not the best cheese plate I sampled last week. The lunch menu is small and concise, but the cheese plate is all we sampled.
Definitely worth the stop, and they definitely have a great grip on their business (beer). They also featured quite a few craft cocktails, which one member of our group sampled and they were very original and tasty.
