My first trip to Chicago and I wanted to see the Hopleaf, it is an old building with most of the walls still intact.

The first thing I noticed after showing the doorman my ID was all of the Belgian glasses and beer of different than clear colors. The back room looked like a great place to eat a dinner sometime, but for that moment I just took a little looky-loo.

The service was nice, he asked me right away, but sadly I didn't have time for a drink since there's a lot of stuff I needed to see and so much that I didn't.

I will enjoy another visit with money and beer and food and everything, probably at night to enjoy the suddle atmosphere.

Hopleaf in Chicago was recommended by a woman sitting next to me while at Russian River in Santa Rosa CA. Good thing, my wife and I really enjoyed it. Would get a 5 but they don't do flights. However, I have to say that the 2 bartenders who took care of us, spared no effort in serving us tasters of anything we asked for and some things they just thought we should try. Not very interested in bottles, we travel to drink draft beer from local breweries. In this regard, hop leaf was excellent. Had salad and venison meatballs at the bar, both very tasty. As usual, when we tipped with fresh bottles of Pliny, the bartenders were appreciative and bought us a round.

PS, went on Monday night, therefore not very busy. The bar was full, most of the tables occupied, but I'm sure that other nights it's crazy busy and we would not have gotten the service we did.

PPs. Many Chicago places used beermenus.com to advertise the beer on tap. Not always up to date, but it helped us decide which places we wanted to visit.

In town very briefly and here because I was looking for a great Chicago beer bar. The physical place is nice, the staff is very knowledgable and friendly (which in my mind can make or break a place) but the tap selection is just ok. Bottle selection is solid. Enjoyed the Stone Hibiscuscity, Bockor Cuvée des Jacobins Rouge and Three Floyds Zombie Dust. As for food, the duck reuben is excellent! Skål!
