Went to this place for "Beer Fistival 2011" and had a great time. They have a lot of really really good beers. I was most impressed with their darker beers like the Sodom (especially the barrel aged Sodom) and the Wee Heavy.

A-cool atmostphere centered around a 360-degree bar with several areas of taps. Lot of wood work, and nice-sized wood booths galore.

Q-the beer is excellent, and the food is great too if you're into stuff like pulled pork, brats, etc.

S-can't really say since i was here for a party. the staff seemed reasonably friendly, although one of their main brewers seems to be a little stuck up which is a bit weird. Dude your life is about brewing beer, you're supposed to be cool!!

S-good beer selection; not very good food selection. don't come here if you're a vegetarian, their "tofu hot dog" is universally deplored.

F-i loved it. ihad a pulled pork sandwich with jalapeno cole slaw on it. simple but very good. (940 characters)

A great place to check out in Chicago. I loved the beer selection and the focus on local hops, and sought after hops.
The place is family friendly, and I'd recommend going with a group to try most of the beers.
The food was good, and I believe they do some local sourcing.
Definitely worth a visit(s)! (301 characters)

Place was packed at 7 on a Monday. Got the only seat at the bar. Loud environment from conversation. 16 of their own beers on tap plus a solid selection of bottles and cans. Draft prices started at $5 a pint up to $7 a snifter for the high abv brews (249 characters)

Nice place with a long bar and lots of seating. Bartenders were friendly and pretty knowledgeable about the beers. Selection was pretty eclectic and there seemed to be something for everyone. (192 characters)
