3.7/5  rDev -12.7%
vibe: 4 | quality: 3.5 | service: 3 | selection: 4.5

This place has two thing going for it, and a few things against it.

For it:
1) The beer selection is really broad, there are a few stinkers on the list, but there are quite a few top-knotch beers. Most of their beers are bottled, and they've only got 10 or so tap beers.
2) It's a comfortable place. There was plenty of seating (even on a Saturday), and the music wasn't too loud to talk over.

Against it:
1) The service. The bartender wasn't rude, but he was inattentive. The first few times I ordered, I had to specifically ask for a glass. After a few times he figured out that I wanted a glass and provided one with my beer. Speaking of glasses:
2) They don't have enough glasses, at all. I fail to understand how a pace can go through the motions of developing a beer list as expansive as their while being unprepared to serve this beer in the proper manner.

All in all, I could see spending more time at a place like this, it was easy going and I did get glasses once I asked, but I can't say this is a must-see if you're visiting Chicago. It was close to the Map Room, so it's worth stopping by if you've got time, but if you're short on time, stick to the Map Room, their commitment to beer is much more apparent.
