It's nice to have a place like this in the West Loop. Good and easy location to get to.
The layout is nice with a long bar divided from a dining room area. The bar gets crowded at busy hours with people trying to move and you find yourself dodging people if you can't find a place at the bar. The actual dining area is great. A nice comfortable place to sit with a group and enjoy some beers.
The service is good. A host is awaiting you to try and find you a table. I usually check in and have a beer from the bar while I wait. The service is kind and quick.
They have the essentials in terms of selection. They have nice examples of beers and carry many good beers. However, if you are looking for a surplus of selection, you can find places with a larger beer menu.
The one downfall of this place is their food. I have had multiple things from their menu, and each time I have not been impressed by the food. I would be content getting their chili as my meal from now on.
Overall, a good feel, selection, and service. Good beer, mediocre food.

One of my favorite places to go in Chicago. Great food (The Riot is amazing), great beers on tap all the time, and their barrel aged beers are phenomenal. Claire’s Thirsty ale is one of my all-time favorite beers, followed by Acrimonious & Indignant.
They’ve won a number of medals at multiple beer festivals and they are well deserved.
Pete is constantly pumping out quality brews, but one of the tried & true staples is Mathias Imperial IPA. It is absolutely amazing, but at 10%, it’ll sneak up on ya after a couple.
Easy walk from Ogilvie Metra station and not far from Union Station, if you haven’t gone before, I’d definitely recommend going.
