I learned about this place from a newspaper column - not being from Chicago I guess it isn't surprising I hadn't heard of it through this site or other beer circles. I had high hopes, but somehow after Piece and Goose Island it seemed a disappointment, although there is certainly nothing wrong with it. Quite a few taps, a beer engine, and a decent bottle list. But for a city with a ton of great beer places (Sheffield's would certainly rival the best of what Columbus has to offer), it doesn't really stick out as superlative. Service was OK, but not really beer savvy. Tap list had some nice beers on it, but nothing really notable or outstanding. And the beer on the beer engine (Arcadia IPA) was a little weak.

A nice place, but I don't know that I'd go as far out of your way as I went out of mine to pay a visit.

My favorite bar in Chicago. The taps rotate at a decent rate and they have a lot of great Midwest beers at very reasonable prices. They also make sure to have a very strong representation of Chicago breweries on tap, which I appreciate.

Food is great. The crowd definitely skews younger during Cubs games and weekend nights.

Overall, it is a place that anyone can enjoy, so it is very easy to convince non-craft beer fans to come.
