Stopped in here a couple weeks ago, after checking out Blind Robin again. Lockdown probably has the better selection of the two, provided they have the beers listed on the menu. 3 beers weren't available... all FFF stuff that was still on the menu.

We sat out on the patio, next to some crusty pseudo biker club with matching jackets, chatting about serial killers. Edgy! They had a couple of flatscreens outdoors, playing the Bears game. Inside it was all blasting metal and burgers with funny names... huh sounds familiar. Chromed bar panels, "industrial" decor. Metal hipster sports bar? Sure I guess...

Outside there were a few patio tables that made up for the lack of character inside. We had some wings and housemade chips that were pretty good. Didn't try any of the crime/prison themed burgers, such as the "Punk Bitch".

Got a pic of the beer menu...

Drafts ($6 average): Oberon, 2 Hearted, Bombardier, Green Line, Matilda, Daisy Cutter, Lagunitas Czech Pils, Hop Stoopid, Left Hand Milk Stout, Schlitz, Stella, FFF seasonal (out).

Cans: Burger, Guinness, Heineken, Iron City, Okocim, Old Style, PBR, Wittekerke.

Unibroue: (Why it gets it's own section, who knows) Blanche, Ephemere, Fin Du Monde, Maudite, Trois Pistoles.

"Domestic bottles": A few macros, Clown Shoes Brown Angel, Barnwood Blonde, Lil Sumpin Sumpin, Napa Smith Lost Dog, Dead Guy, FFF P&J (out), FFF Gumballhead (out).

Imports: Chimay Blue, Delerium, Duvel, Hacker-Pschorr, Hoegaarden, Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout, and a few macros.

Overall a decent selection for the Uk. Village area, right across from the Empty Bottle. A pre-game spot for a show, or a Western Ave pub crawl candidate. Also near Blind Robin, Rich's Deli, Andrzej Grill (next door, great Polish food, closes early), Puerto Rico Liquors, Rootstock.
