Another Chicago classic. The selection is as good as you can expect given the availability in the Chicago market. Killer tap selection that can include rare beers you may never be able to get at a retail shop.
As you walk in you'll find a rather large and long bar on your right. Tables against the wall on your left. Pool table in back. There is no kitchen.
Every bartender I've met there provides excellent service and they are cool as well. The music you'll hear there will be allover the place. Almost as random as Sheffield's. But always great quality for the style of music played.
The one thing I hate is the Friday and Saturday night crowd. I avoid the place on those nights. Sunday and Mondays are perfect. Free food on Mondays! Bars used to do this all the time, at least here in Chicago. Nice to see a bar providing that.

Opens at 6am for coffee and pastries. Starts serving beer at 11am. This place is absolutely lovely during the day with open windows during nice days. I, personally, avoid the weekends and nights. Too many amatuers. World class beer list and a very nice staff.
