9th stop on a recent trip to Chicago with my girlfriend.

VIBE: massive "open air" interior has a sizable bar with several flat screens and various dining areas dispersed throughout the restaurant. Two-seater tables off to the left, some communal tables and stools in the middle, and large booths toward the front. Windows were open on our visit, which we enjoyed. Downmarket atmosphere has a sports bar feel to it. Pretty cool vibe.

SERVICE: initially we were seated in the two-person tables section, but it was quite cramped and we could hear everything that the patrons beside us were saying, so the waitress agreed to move us. She was very graceful about it even though we moved to another server's area. The male waiter wasn't nearly as friendly but he provided timely service and decent recos.

SELECTION: I ordered the Dysfunctionale IPA and Flat Iron Stout and the lady scored a wine of her liking. The Stout was too malt-forward for my tastes; however, the IPA was one of the best that I've sampled in a while. House taps span a wide range of styles (Belgian Single, Kolsch, Rye Beer, DIPA) and the guest draughts come from top-notch breweries such as 3Floyds, Bell's, Half Acre, Sierra Nevada, and New Belgium. Although the bottle list is lacking for Chicago, it still includes a few gems like Saxo and Bahnhof Berliner Weisse.

FOOD: we went with a custom pizza (pepperoni, Italian sausage, tomato, spinach, onions) that was absolutely sumptuous. The "large" can feed 4 people and, at $13, it's dirt cheap. Also had a fresh mixed green salad to start. We couldn't have been happier with our dinner.

OVERALL: Piece is exactly the type of place that my girl and I would regularly visit if we lived in Chi-Town. They're doing the "beer & pizza" thing really well. A choice destination for its award-winning craft brews and flavourful, unpretentious cuisine.

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.

This was an awesome place to hang out, grab a beer, and eat some pizza. Stopped in on a gorgeous Sunday night and of course the place was packed but the wait to get a beer was minimal. The wait for a pizza was a little bit longer, but that's to be expected. And it was well worth waiting!

They have a nice selection of rotating beers on draft and they make some really interesting and enjoyable brews. The atmosphere inside was really cool, high ceilings with sky lights to let in a lot of natural light. The dining/bar area were a big open room that was very inviting. I'd definitely recommend stopping in and checking this place out, very happy I did.
