Little hole in the wall place not very far south of wrigley. Came on a Monday late and it was dead. Bartender was cool as hell. They had zombie dust ontap which is why I came. The other taps were thoughfully chosen it seems. A beer and bacon themed place, which is awesome. Will definitely come back to try the bacon bomb sandwich. Bartender said there are long waits for the beer and bacon tastings. Was allowed to sample tasters of a couple taps that I was curious about. Cool little place and I will be back. Nice selection of glassware. Taplines and glasses clean.

This is one of my all-time favorite places to drink beer and have a good time. If you are interested in beer, this is a great place to go when you're in Chicago. If you are interested in bacon, this is the ONLY place to go when you're in Chicago. They have specialty bacon menu items that include a sampler, a sandwich made out of ground pork and bacon which is divine, and the bacon explosion, which will feed 7 or 8 of the portliest, hungriest Chicagoans you will find.
Back to the beer.
Their selection is quite good, with a lot of classics like Guinness, Delirium Tremens and Trumer Pils.
They do a good job of offering great local beers like Metropolitan Krankshaft and they host plenty of phenomenal events for Goose Island, Off Color Brewing Company etc..
Overall, if you are interested in Beer and are in Chicago, the only place I would recommend before this spot is The Map Room on Armitage Ave.
If you want to check out a soccer game, this is one of the better places to do so.
If you like eating hilariously unhealthy food and drinking a good selection of beer, come here! It is pure enjoyment.
It is a tad expensive, but I'd say it's worth every penny (I have been a patron of this pub while I was an intern as well as my present job, so it's a bit more affordable now.)

Home of the Bacon Bomb, in case you had not heard. Stopped in here with a good sized group for a business dinner (our owner loooves bacon). We were thrilled to go since the beer list is good too.
Nice place, rather small. We sat at a bunch of tables in the back. Servers were very nice. Beer list was quite good, heavy on the local and regional craft selections, which was alright by us.
The food, or at least the large portion of the menu we got, is bacon themed and, by and large, fried. The bacon bomb is a 5 pound meatloaf wrapped in bacon and deep fried. Sounded better than it was really but the other fried stuff was pretty good.
There are better beer stops and better food stops, and better beer and food stops in Chicago but I liked this place. And it's only a moderate walk from Local Option, a place we love.

Fun neighborhood bar with great beer and an awesome environment. I've spend many a day cozied up to the bar enjoying their always great line-up. I would put this up against any beer establishment in the city!
Paddy Long's seems to have also become a destination site for bacon lovers, having been featured on more TV shows than I can remember. So if bacon is your thing, there's another reason to stop in.
