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.
