went at what i thought was an off time (3ish on a friday), and it was still crazy busy. managed to snag a couple barstools for the approximate 1 hour wait for a table. very small place and heavy metal themed. people waiting outside for tables. metal music blares constantly with a decibal level of a club at 2am. very, very loud. decor is dark and appropriate to the theme. tap list on a large chalkboard and also a separate beer list. half dozen or so taps, and a decent if not large bottle selection. no crap beer available excpet PBR for the hipsters. 3Fs and other good stuff available on tap. there were out of some of the listed bottle selections, so i don't know how up to date the beer list is. food is as good as advertised, great burgers with eclectic toppings available. my only complaint about the food was one of my burger ingredients was listed as wild mushrooms but unless i'm crazy they used standard white button mushrooms. big ass (10 oz) burger cooked medium rare as recommended by the stewardess. good, fresh beef is used on a killer pretzel roll bun. proper glassware is used, some of it branded. too bad they don't have imperial/nonic pints as opposed to the shaker pints they use for most beers though. service is very business-like and not too friendly-they want you in and out of there asap so they can turn over the tables. lots of rules regarding the tables in regard to this. don't go with too many people and make sure to avoid the busier times.

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.
