vibe: 3 | quality: 3.5 | service: 3.5 | selection: 3.5 | food: 3

When we walked in we were greeted with a sterile, clean... sort of stiff feeling brewpub. The bar was off to the right with high top seating and more seating off the main room. Clean walls, a few TVs about... it was sort of restaurant-sports bar meets brewpub. For some reason it didn't feel "beery" even though there was a huge chalkboard touting all the awards their beers won. Impressive and cheesy at the same time. The atmosphere wasn't cozy and it wasn't classy either... it was sort of just neutral.

We found a seat at the bar; it was around 2pm on a lazy Monday. I was not thrilled with the beer selection; it was heavy on wheat beers and lighter offerings. No stouts or porters, nothing too hoppy. I tried their ESB and it did nothing for me. However, the guest taps were great. Racer 5, two 3F beers and about 10 other tasty offerings... I had a Racer 5 with my pizza. It is a shame I needed to drink a guest beer at a brewpub...

The pizza was thin crust, simple, greasy and nothing special. The bartender talked us into getting the spinach dip and chips, it was far from great.

The service was above average but not overly noteworthy. It took sometime for us to get our check as one of the two bartenders/waitress seemed to have disappeared. But, overall, no complaints.

We stopped here because it was close to the train stop and a short walk to Map Room. Nothing about Piece was outstanding enough for me to recommend to others and I really have no need to return the next time I am in Chicago. Sadly, it was a forgettable brewpub experience.

Review from notes - Visited on a Sunday that the Blackhawks were in the playoffs, so it was extremely hard to get a place at the bar to eat...may have taken 15-20 minutes. Not too bad. I had a beer in hand so all was good. Tried the Marketing Ploy, Victoria, and Golden Arm. All three were well done and served in proper glassware. The staff appeared to be well versed in the beers that they were pouring, but given the situation, they were less inclined to really talk about it. Also had a pizza and it was really good, if you like thin crust pizza. While it is "New Haven" style pizza, and the crust was what I expected, it lacked flavor in addition to the sauce, as compared to those pizzerias in New Haven. Don't get me wrong, the next time that I am in Chicago, I will be back. Good beer, good pizza and a good vibe...what more can you really ask for?

I was so excited to try the beer and pizza here. The place is very nice inside and had an awesome beer list. I order the flight of beer and most of their beers were delicious. My only issue with this place was I ordered a Hannsens Gueuze and they brought me a St. Louis without telling me they didn't have Hannsens anymore. This annoyed me a bit because my waitress told me "it's the same thing" which I couldn't disagree more with. The pizza was great and I would def come back here to eat and drink their beers on draft.
