Haymarket's definitely picking up steam. When I arrived with a friend, it was after lunch rush. We sat immediately, and I had samples of the three house brews available--a dubbel, an American IPA, and I believe a Belgian pale ale. The last was underfermented, but the other two were perfectly serviceable, and for a five or six dollar pint in the West Loop, very reasonable. I won't judge the beer too much, because it's still their first batches, but it's good, if not great. The selection of bottles and non-house taps is growing, and well-chosen. Prices vary from inexpensive to absurd (i.e., some Belgians and less common Americans are in the twenty/thirty dollars a bomber range) but there's enough for the budget-conscious.

The food was nice, too. Sausage platter was three exceptional links of encased meat, an awful piece of baguette, and a side, cabbage in my case. Great portion of good food for an acceptable price, even inexpensive for the area. My friends had a rotisserie chicken, which was moist and interestingly seasoned, and an appetizer of the ribs and fries, which were fine. Fries are the skinny sort, with skin on, apparently house-cut, and serviceable if not stellar. Bread pudding was dense and burnt in parts, but a good portion for five dollars.

Service was accommodating, and the waitress knew enough about beer. She wasn't overly harried, so she stopped by and made small talk often enough, very nice.

Overall, so far, a great addition to the Chicago scene. Less scene-ster than Revolution, with a wide variety of beer and food for a reasonable price. Can't wait to repeat visits.

Located in the old meat packing district in Chicago. Cool space, actually feels like a bar. Each beer is better than the next, have plenty of cocktails available to. Food is amazing, definitely get the sausage plate w/ pretzels and the house mustard. Service was good, please leave your man buns at home. Can't go wrong with a trip to the market.

Good spot, about a dozen or so of their own offerings which were all pretty good and quite a few guest taps. Its nice that they have 4,8,12,16,20oz pours so you can do as you wish. Was here at opening on New Years Day so pretty quiet.

Went after lunch on a Wednesday and the place was about 3/4 full with 3 servers working. Had the worst service at any brewery I've ever been to. We sat for 10 minutes before a guy that was not our server came to our table. He took our beer orders and said he would pass it to our server who was supposedly swamped but able to carry conversations with some tables. Took another 20 minutes to get our beer after we had to remind someone to remind our server to get us beer and finally come by!. There was a good selection with 7 taps for Haymarket brews and the rest being guest taps. Beer was ok. Nothing stand out and nothing worth waiting 30 minutes for. Not coming back and I'd just recommend everyone go to Revolution or Half Acre instead for way better beer and service.

Haymarket is a gem in the West Loop of Chicago. Always a great selection of brewed-in-house beers along with decent guest drafts. The prices are extremely reasonable for the quality of beer and I love that you can enjoy 4oz pours of anything without any hassle whatsoever. The food menu is somewhat on the shorter side, but extremely solid.

Bottom line is that in a city like Chicago where bars and breweries are plentiful, this one still stands out as one of my absolute favorites. Anytime a BA beer is on the menu it's going to be a must have. GREAT SPOT!

Very nice tap list at this brewpub - about a dozen Haymarket brews and probably another 10-12 guest taps. We came for the Mathias DIPA, which was very good, but there are other quality brews as well. A good place to hang out while waiting for a table at the Girl & the Goat.
