If you live in chicago you need to visit. If you were like me and a traveler go out of your way and stop in. However before you go plan and make reservations the place was packed.
I went on a Saturday night and fortunately made reservations that day for 6 showed up at 5 to sit and the bar. boy was i surprised to see this place. I expected upscale and it met my expectations
we sat by the bar and had mussels to do with our two drafts. and were later showed to our tables. We spent almost 4.5 hours in there eating and drinking,
Food - i would say belguim/french style. Seafood I had both the mussels and the seafood stew . both were outstanding. My friend had the pork belly . everyone around was enjoying the food.
Atmosphere one long u shape table were you sit and meet your neighbors talk beer, and food. it was great fun. I could see spending many a night eating and drinking in here
Beer selection: the selections leans to belguims and belguims made elsewhere. the staff was extrenely knowledgable and made excellant recommendation. Ended the night with a Surly 3 (ok 2 surly 3s)
a great place to expiernce beer and food

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.
