Our first stop on a recent trip to Chicago.
VIBE: dimly lit ambience, large bar greets you at the door with a couple flat screens playing the ball games, attractive open dining room with ample space between tables, casual cosmopolitan crowd that minds their own business, really nice patio.
SERVICE: Angie, our waitress on both occasions, was friendly, relaxed, and welcoming, and she answered all of our questions regarding the drinks and cuisine. When we left to flag a cab in the rain, she gave my girlfriend an umbrella and told us we could keep it. Truly exceptional service.
SELECTION: the brewpub beers cover a broad range of styles (pilsner, stout, tripel), guest taps and bottle list are particularly impressive. Over the course of two visits I had a Founders All Day Pale Ale, Haymarket Black Sox Porter, 3Floyds Arctic Panzer Wolf DIPA, Haymarket The Saison Also Rises, SKA Modus Hoperandi IPA, and Green Flash Summer Saison. While the house saison left something to be desired, their porter was fantastic and I was very satisfied with the draughts from other breweries.
FOOD: we each ordered a House Salad and split the Italian Sausage Pizza with tomato, basil, and pulled pork. Everything tasted great and paired well with our beer and wine. We also liked the fact that you can add extra pizza toppings for $0.75. Prices are quite reasonable as six drinks, two salads, and a pizza came to $55.
OVERALL: Haymarket is a benchmark brewpub with solid house beers, an insane guest draught lineup and bottle menu, appetizing food, outstanding service, and an approachable atmosphere. We came twice and will gladly revisit on future trips to Chicago.
