Finally went here with my wife and several other beeradvocates. What a great place! The bar has large windows which open to the sidewalk, brightening up the inside of the place. They had a nice selection of local micros and Belgians on tap. Food was very good, and priced typically for this very expensive neighborhood. (Down the street they are selling cupcakes for $2 each, so what can you expect?) Very good service, we discussed homebrewing with the owner which is always nice. Can't think of anything wrong with this place. Very impressed.

I was in Chicago on business and a little research showed me this was definitely the place to check out. It absolutely delivered.

Not big place, kind of dark with a handful of tables and the bar. There's a real punk attitude to the place, which the giant skull logo on the wall reinforces. Some unusual neon beer signs (Mikkeller & Delerium) behind the bar and the specials board:

No specials, EVER. So fucking metal.

That's all I needed to see. The selection was incredible, I had Bells HopSlam, Founders Double Trouble, Mikkeller 1000 IBU, Ska Toasters 30th, some Three Floyds. ~25 taps of beer geek heaven. The bartenders were great, very knowledgable and friendly. Thanks Noah!
