I've been going to this Old Chicago ever since it opened. I'm an addicted Buzztime player and having decent to excellent beers on tap, in the beginning, was a pleasant by product.
Well, this place knows me well and I know them well. On a first name basis with most of the staff, I can always count on good to great food that *can* get pricey but there are definite bargains to be had.
The taps offer up everything from Bud Light, which must pay for a lot of bills judging from how many folks here in Casper opt for it, to beers from Wyoming that you can only otherwise sample by visiting the brewery/brewpub. Currently(at the time of this review) they have Snake River Pako's IPA and Wind River Black Ale on tap. Both are excellent brews and excellent examples of their respective styles. I've been drinking the heck out of both of them and feeling some local pride!
In the past, I've seen and had beers from the Lander Brewing Company, Sierra Nevada Celebration(Pleas bring that back!) and Harvest Ale, and also currently serving Paulaner Wiesn Bier that is a most delicious and drinkable Märzen / Oktoberfest.
By far, the OC has the best selection of beers in town and I highly recommend visiting if you are in my neck of the woods.

Have been to this Old Chi's a few times when visting relatives up near Sheridan. Before Colorado got the likes of Boulevard, Big Sky, and a couple others, this was definitely a stop coming home to Denver metro.
Typical Old Chi fare: good to great food (they do Chicago-style pizza pretty damn good), good to great selection of brews. First time I visited, they actually brewed one or two selections on site which was pretty unique; not sure if that's still the case or not.
Service I had at the rail was very good and on slower nights, the barkeeps will talk to you about beer, sports, etc. Only wish is that this location still offered up more selections that we don't get in Colorado Old Chicagos; it was great in the past to get Boulevard, Snake River, and the brewery up in Pinedale (forget what name WAS--now Wind River) on tap. Definitely worth a stop if you are passing through on I 25.
