Wow this place is terrible.
Worst bar I have been to in Chicago.
I would normally love a place like this but the bartender refused to let me sample a beer that ended up sucking. He was a total jerk about it too. I asked for a sample and he said "what do you want to know" I said I want to know if I like it before I buy it. Then he proceeded to explain the style to me. I cut him of and said I would have a Gumballhead. The Gumballhead was stale.
I did end up getting a full pour of the beer I asked about and it was terrible.
There is a 25 dollar minimum credit card charge but that's easy considering the beers are 9 bucks each for 10 oz pours!!.
Zero cell reception and no Wi-Fi. Of course all the employee used Wi-Fi all night playing on their phones.
All the bartenders had very dirty facial hair and the food server kept twirling his fingers in his mangy unkempt beard.
I guarantee someone decided to open a brewery/bar after visiting 3 Floyds, saying to themselves "I can do this in Chicago" and having no idea what they were doing. So bummed this place wasn't better. (1,075 characters)

This is a metal craft beer bar. If you don't like metal, you probably won't have a good time. (93 characters)
