Was in the neighborhood and made it a point to seek this place out after rave reviews from friends.

A: I must have went at an awkward time. There was a mix of students on laptops drinking coffee (cafe by day as well) and a good amount of others letting the suds flow. For this reason it was slightly off putting as I felt like I had to be quieter with people working.

S: One bartender working. A standard human being. He got us a beer without problems, which isn't saying to much. Not overly friendly or welcoming that you'd ask questions about selections.

Sel: This is what draws people to the Map Room. A good amount of tapped drafts with an insane selection of bottled beers. The beer on draft are great examples with some local rarities. Good luck picking a bottled beer as there are many.

F: N/A - Pretzels on the table were good though.

Map room consistently has a solid tap list and more than a few interesting bottles. Only issue is that they seem to run out of what you are looking for quite often. Not to worry! A quick chat with the bartender will result in you finding a new beer or even brewery that is just as good, or better, than the one you were originally seeking.

This is a good craft brew place to visit. Seemed to be set up like a coffee shop, but with craft beer. Meaning, ample space to set up your labtop and get some work done, while enjoying local brews. The service was fine, but slow, but that was mostly due to another patron and a long winded story. Selection was fine, and they had several local options. But the selection didn't blow me away. The place came highly recommended, and while not quite living up to hype, I'd still recommend checking out.

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.
