This place is a legendary Chicago beer bar. With their expansion last year, they have undoubtedly vaulted themselves into a top 10 beer destination in the United States. Their food menu is very solid, high end pub food with Belgian flare (eat mussels, drink beer). Their beer menu will blow your face off. With the expansion, I believe I counted 62 drafts. Even among the "good" beer bars, though, their list is very special. Few bars can fill more than 30 drafts with truly interesting choices. And then there’s the 22 page bottle list.

If you’re visiting Chicago, this is a MUST. MUST. Visit. If you live here and haven’t been, shame on you.

Hopleaf hosts great beer classes in their upstairs room. They range from classes for newbies to relatively advanced (cicerone tasting/sour beer/regional beers/etc)

Disclaimer: these guys get BUSY. The staff is extremely lovely, so go at a time when you can actually talk to them.
