I love Chicago. I've lived in Chicago and enjoyed many of the great beer experiences that the windy City has to offer. This past visit was due to my daughter's volleyball tournament and we were forced to stay in a hotel out deep in the burbs. Due to rough weather we couldn't head into town. This place was in the area and the bright spot of our weekend.
The atmosphere was warm and friendly with a hip vibe to it. It's small and gave us a 30 minute wait. Not a problem with their beer list. On draught they had Chimay White, Duvel Green, Affigem Blond, Gumballhead, Napa Smith IPA, Burning River, Hairy Eyeball, Robert the Bruce, Two Hearted, Mephistopeles, Matilda and much more. I was quite lubricated by the time we got to our table.
The food was great. We had the goat cheese appetizer and the steak tacos and their special mac and cheese for dinners.
And to The Firkin, thanks so much for the hospitality and fine beers and food, because frankly it would have been a somewhat miserable weekend with the weather and the beatings my daughter's team took in the tournament.

One of my favorites. I go for all the amazing brews but the food is also awesome. They always have a wide selection of great craft brew. Definitely take pride in the craft. Always using proper glassware, and great tap maintenance. If your in the Libertyville area be sure to stop by.

Great beer selection fo a local bar. Friende them on facebook for the updates on what beers are tapped. I work around the corner so its nice to pop over and pick up a fresh pint they currently have bcbs and backyard on tap. The rumor is they have bcbcs and prop but will not confirm.
