Paddy Long's is the kind of place that one stumbles on without much hope for as far as good beer goes, but once inside those thoughts are put to rest. outside it is truely a 'neighborhood' bar, with a worn in feel that blends right into its surroundings. inside, it's a typical english-feeling bar with a small patio out front containing a couple tables adorned with Hoegarden and Delerium umbrellas (probably the only indication of the solid beer list inside).

atmosphere is laid back and very relaxing (on a weekday evening). there was a comfortable amount of people there (around 15 to 20); most seemed to be watching one of two flat screens above the bar with sports playing.

quality and service are excellent. barkeeps that love beer, proper and clean glassware with prompt service. just what a great beer bar should be.

selection is great. a very well thought out list with a little bit for every type of palate. this BA had half of a Goose Island Juliet bottle (Thanks Matt!), a Metropolitan Kolsch and a Sierra Nevada Porter, both on tap. the tap beers were fresh and quite tasty.

food was solid. the regular burger was on special for $7, and was worth it; well put together, perfectly cooked, and the fries were good as well.

overall, this is a solid stop for beer on Chicagos North Side. it may be a bit different on the weekends, but weekday evenings are the perfect time to relax and enjoy a couple pints. keep an eye out though, because this place blends in well with its context. cheers!
