Visited on Fox Night 2012...was some fucked up shit going on in there...

They had BCBS on tap, oh my! They had bottles of Drie Fontienen oh me!, they had great food, oh no!, and some good service! A really cool joint and I think we hit it on the right night. Not alot of foot traffic, so we were able to sprawl out with our whole group and crush some major brews. The bottle list is very affordable with some great surprises on it. The tap list is a bit more on the pricey side, but for the selection, WTF do you expect? Cough it up and drink something nice.

Local Option just moved up my list of favorite places in Chicago...it was at one time Hopleaf/Maproom/Fountainhead in that order, but Local Options vibe and variety has vaulted them past the three prior favs. Cheers for doing such a great job!

This is my favorite spot in Chicago. They usually have some rarer beers on tap plus they have some unique beers of there own. I love the Kentucky Common.

So I've been to Local Option twice, the first time was a great experience while the second time was terrible. First time I went was on a Saturday night and we went for dinner and drinks, the server was super nice and attentive, making some good suggestions on beer and food. Had a muffaletta sandwich that was good but there was seriously like an entire jar of olives on that thing..way too many. But had some good tasty drafts including FFF War Mullet and their tasty Blood ov the Kings. Second time, I went on a Saturday afternoon with a buddy and we sat at the bar. THe bartender did not even acknowledge our existence for at least 5 minutes, and it wasn't that crazy busy. We ordered a round of Zombie Dusts, and to our surprise they poured them into 10 oz mugs and charged $16 for the round ---- I couldn't believe it! I mean cmon a Pale Ale should be served in a pint, no exceptions. What a Fn rip off,
