Finally got around to this place. After hearing rave reviews, I have to join the bandwagon.

A: A "metal-bar" with loud blaring music and crazy gore movies playing on the television above the bar. A long bar with a smoked out and foggy dining room. This place looks like something out of a movie. However, don't feel as if you wont fit in; there are people of all sorts here from businessmen to young adults to actual biker looking dudes. A friendly, yet intense setting.

S: The service here is excellent. The waitress/bus crew/ and bartenders are friendly and quick.

S: A good selection of craft beers both on tap and in bottles. I noticed a lot of local breweries ranging from New Holland to Three Floyds to Great Lakes. They have good seasonal brews and you will surely find something you like or have never tried.

F: The best burger in Chicago, bar none. I had the Led Zeppelin burger which was loaded with bacon, pulled pork, and cheese. Words cannot explain this heart-attack on a plate, you will just have to try it. Otherwise, I noticed they have pasta/mac n cheese, and other things to try.

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.
