I got off the plane at O'Hare and decided to hit up this place for my introduction to the Chicago beer scene before heading for my downtown hotel. Hard to detect at night when you're driving through a busy area with no navigator and no lighted signs. In fact I was convinced I wasn't really in the right place and was about to give up when I decided to circle the block to make sure. This is a fairly small place with a nice rustic pub feel. Probably 20 or so taps, including many on my Chicago must-try list, plus four cask engines. Bartenders loved talking beer with those of us seated at the bar and were quick with samples if we showed any interest. Nice lively (but not beligerent crowd) on hand and they were quite friendly. This place was a nice welcome to Chicago.

A great place for English style fare. Portions are generous and delicious. Beer selection is mostly UK crafts and American breweries that specialize in English Ales. They had Old Chub on cask which was awesome as you can imagine. It is a bit pricey but worth it. Parking isn't friendly.
