Small selection. I think the line may have had issues when I was there as none of my beers had any carbonation happening. I missed my bubbles. Over all their beer is good, and I know it.

Love Half Acre so much. The brewery can get very crowded and loud, especially during peak hours, but if you are able to grab a table, make a day/night of it.

PROS:
~ Warm feel to the bar
~ Bring your own food...they offer up some great suggestions on places to grab some good stuff from to enjoy while you're taking in some fantastic brews
~ The friendliest staff in Chicago
~ Firkin Fridays...always some great small batch brews worth checking out

CONS:
~ Can be a bit too cramped and loud during peak hours on Fridays and Saturdays
~ While I love Half Acre, I wish they'd offer up a bit more than only eight or so beers at a time...then again, with their current production facility they can't do much more, so I don't fault them.
