Holy crap - the walk from the Red Line station to Hopleaf in a near-blizzard was way too cold - had to stop at the CVS and pick up hat and gloves. Got to Hopleaf around 5:00 pm on a Friday afternoon (Feb10) and the place was moderately busy but filling up quickly. Everyone I talked to was all about the beer and great beer it was. Approximately 40 taps featuring a nice selection of local Chicago brews (including Three Floyds Zombie Dust during our visit!). Servers are very beer knowledgeable and very in tune with the current inventory. Didn't eat there but noted several delicious looking dishes passing by. Great crowd, great beer, great service - a great place for beer in Chicago!

This place is awesome. They have a bunch of not only American craft on tap but plenty of Belgian beers too.
Food is great and reasonably priced. It's a great neighborhood too.
Only ten minutes away from Half Acre. Get the oysters they are the best I have ever had.

Atmosphere: nothing to special here. mostly has the feel of a fancy restaurant.
Quality: fairly good to great quality but I would assume this isn't too out of the ordinary in Chicago.
Service: good service, didn't need much help making my selections but he was there when needed and fairly quick
Selection: pretty good selection, I'd hope for nothing less with the distro and quantity that chicago gets. I had zombie dust and heart of gold from perenial. it didn't look like the most rare and unique beer but there was a good variety
Food: very good, probably the highlight, I had good mussels and some tasty fries
Overall: if your in the mood for mussels and beer you can't go wrong. Definitely worth a shot but unlikely to be the very best of chicago
