This place is a really awesome restaurant that also has a great beer list. It's definitely a destination restaurant, and with food and drinks you're looking about $80 a head. I f***ing LOVE their house made pork rinds. They also have a house blended lambic. Crazy. You could definitely take your lady here and not even mention the beer to her (if she's not into beer and is a bit sick of you only taking her to beer places), but you could sample some great stuff. She might notice, though, if someone orders a boot and the entire communal table chants him on to finish (which happened while we were there). This might be a schmancy restaurant, but they really care about their beer. I jokingly pointed a mistake out to the server where the menu said that Jolly Pumpkin was from Vermont, not Michigan. Instead of waving me off, she got wide eyed ,exclaimed "you're right!", and ran off to tell the beer director. This place is seriously awesome.

This place is outstanding. It has a great combination of outstanding beer list, menu and bourbon line-up.
When I went there were probably 30 different beer selections including a one off collaboration with Three Floyds and their own lambic. If you can't find something to like you aren't looking hard enough.
The food is served small plate style so you can try some different options and all of the options were outstanding. Prepared perfectly and each delectable. Definitely try the charcuterie option.
The bourbon selection included all vintages of PvW so you know you can get a treat. They were pricey, but for a special occassion splurge.
The service is impeccable and you will not wait or want for anything.
Definitely make this a stop if you are visiting or live in the Chicago area, you will not be disappointed.
