Pretty darn close to your perfect beer bar. Ton of bottle selections, pretty overwhelming in fact. Right around 24 taps, split pretty evenly between European and American brewers. Everything was poured in the appropriate glasses and the servers were top-notch. I loved sitting there with two buddies, all of us drinking unique beers from unique glassware and busily trying to figure out what we were going to try each. This is what a beer bar should be about.
If you are in the region, make the trip, you will not be sorry. This place is the Taj Mahal when it comes to beer bars. (580 characters)

My kind of spot. Relaxed, easy-going, focused on the beer while still letting you enjoy the game if you want to. Had told myself I wasn't leaving Chicago without stopping in and I'm glad I persisted. Grabbed a bottle of Bo & Luke, and checked out some 3 Floyds offerings on draft. Just a great experience at one of the country's top beer bars. (343 characters)

My kind of place: laid back with plenty of good Midwestern, east and west coast taps thrown in. Recently made my 1st visit on a biz trip to Chicago and will certainly return. Note: as other reviewers have observed, this place can get busy as it was on my visit on a Sunday afternoon, but the wait for a pint was well worth it. (326 characters)
