I’ll admit - I avoided Kumas for a long time. I hate lines. I had also heard bad things from others, and for some reason I listened to it instead of listening to my gut. After all - my boyfriend and I have a track record of taming some of the surliest bartenders (cough ** Toronado). Anyhow. Our friends were in town and had heard a lot about Kumas. We went expecting to wait a long time, but, realistically, the wait was about a 45 minutes on a Saturday afternoon and we got drinks from the bar during the wait. The draft list is small but well thought out. The bottle list is great. The burgers are incredible. The service is stupendous. Absolutely nice people. (Don’t believe the music and - not kidding - the Shining playing on the TV). Lovely people (ha, they probably cringed at that word). Great bar. If you haven’t been here, GO. But go on a weekday afternoon. The negatives of this place are summed up in our experience with a man who ran up to the hostess after our party of 6 was sat. He was insisting that he and his 5 year old son were there before us. Whether he was right or wrong, we were sat at a 6 top, and he only had a party of 2. F*** that guy for not only yelling at a really nice hostess but also yelling at other customers. However, when a place is this famous, crap like this happens. Go when it’s not busy so you can enjoy it. You ratebeerians probably know better, though.

Stopped here briefly while walking from the beer temple to some (blue?) line stop
The place was somewhat overflowing on a Saturday evening. Walking in I was given the wait time and handed a draft/bottle menu to skim through.. I was drawn to the 3 Floyds and half acre "seasonal" options on the menu, as I stood comfortably within the biker-bar, metal blaring, hamburger grease saturating bar scene. When I asked the bartender what seasonal options were on for both FFF/half acre, she stated they had (permanently?) stopped carrying both breweries (and the lines were currently vacant - no replacement options).
There were some decent local offerings regardless (and I could have gotten canned daisy cutter -unknown freshness), but considering the other beer bar options available in Chi town, this place wasn't even a competitive establishment and I passed on luxury of a near-screaming 2-foot conversation and the lingering beef stench I'd endure with a local pint.
