Hopleaf has a great reputation, and in most regards, it lives up to it. in appearance, the bar is like most good beer bars, with various memorabilia around, a wall of bottles above the bar, and a variety of tap handles that gives the bar a great character.

the atmosphere is laid back and very condusive to drinking great beer. this BA visited on a monday evening, around 4pm to 6pm, and the conditions were decent, with around 15 to 20 people around the bar, all drinking great beer and no drunks to speak of.

quality and service are great. correct and clean glassware, knowledgeable barkeeps, and friendly & prompt service.

selection is solid. a wide variety of styles with a bunch of less common styles are available on tap. the bottle list is extensive (this BA stuck to the tap handles); expect a good proportion to be Belgians, with a healthy selection of american craft brews as well.

food is available, albeit a bit pricey.

overall, this is one stop in Chicago that should make it on any visitors list, provided a trip north of the city is possible. cheers!
