Went here the day before DLD 2010. Didn't know what to expect from this place, but I was impressed!
This is a big-ass place, expansive with high ceilings and some second floor seating areas that overlook the main central area where the bar is. As big and new as it is, they pack the place. The scene is great - a fairly young crowd, without too many notebook-packing tickers (except me) or Jersey shore club types (again, except me).
They had seven of their beers on tap when I went, and all were good to great. I consider myself to rate a little tougher than the average reviewer, and I gave their beers scores from B to A. They really nail the more "sessionable" styles, as their golden ale and dark mild were phenomenal for the styles. There are also almost 100 (as a guess) guest bottles as well as several guest taps.
The food is excellent. I had a burger, which was awesome, and shared some mussels and some bacon popcorn. Prices are about what you'd expect for the area and the quality. Service staff was friendly from my experience.
Great place overall! I'll definitely try to come back if I'm in Chicago again.
