After Christmas set in, I ended up meeting a musician friend of mine and needless to say, this place is a blast.
The atmosphere feels like an old New England style log cabin set in the dead of winter. The people that gather here are very warm, sociable and all thoroughly enjoyed great beer Fountainhead definitely is an accepting place.
The quality here is great. The menu contains a ton of beers and they thoroughly researched and gave a description to each brew inside the house. Needless to say, these people know damn well what they're doing.
Service was top notch. The girl who served my friend and I recommended great beer to try (even after we thoroughly read the menu!) and kept good tabs on our patronage. Excellent service indeed.
Selection was beyond great. They've got so much brew on tap and in the bottle it's tough to make a decision since all of it's so great.
I only came for the beer. I haven't tried the dinner, but I'm sure it's great.
The beer here is a bit pricey, but honestly it's worth it. With this nasty Chicago winter setting in, you're paying for the warmth of a safe and great place, excellent service and fantastic beer. Definitely recommended for those who want a new chapter of beer dreams fulfilled.
