Took the family to Sunday brunch after a weekend visiting the Chicago area. I liked that the place was easy to find, free parking, no stress for someone not familiar with driving downtown Chicago, as the place is out of the way of the busiest downtown areas.

Seated immediately in the downstairs area, which was OK, but we felt a bit out of the way. The service wasn't all that great, and I'll cut a break to the waitress who seemed very new a bit flustered. Took as about 2.5 hours to eat and get out of there. That's really my only complaint, otherwise definitely looking to go back here our next trip.

The food was really good and they had some off the wall beers that were hit or miss. Next time, I'd like to like to get a sample platter to get a little more variety with the beers. Children had a good time and they had lots of options for them.

Finally, although they had bottled beer to go, the warehouse across the street had much better selections at 1/3 of the price.

Met some friends for V-Day 2014 here though arrived a little late thanks to chicago's amazing traffic system. The beer was really good Identity crisis was pretty well amazing I enjoyed the fish and chips with the several beers I imbibed over the course of the evening. The waiter's knowledge of the beer was great, it was really nice to have someone who knew what the heck was on the menu instead of "it's a dark beer" or "it's kinda a light beer like you know bud light". The menu itself did a good job of explaining what was going on in many of the brews which they had several made in house exclusively but as for the personal touch the waiter did a pretty good job of offering up his thoughts on the beers. The Identity Crisis was $10 for a small snifter of the stuff probably around 5 oz, really freaking good stuff I bought another egged on by my buddy AJ but still I thought a little steep for a sample size glass. In the end I would definitely go back the place was comfortable and the people were very hospitable to say the least and the beer....well the beer speaks volumes for itself, the other beers were reasonably priced for a Chicago bar. I'd go back that's for sure, someone else needs to drive. TAXI!

Everything was so good! The portions were a good size. Hummus platter and calamari salad was great. The calamari was cooked perfectly. It was like butter. They had a lot of great beers, most of them brewed on site. Waitress was very nice and funny. Always a plus
