During a recent trip to Chicago, we rented a house about .3 miles from Sheffield's, so it was a quick walk which made it nice. But for some reason, even though we enjoyed our visit, we only stopped by once. So many other things going on.

As I walked in the front door, the first thing I noticed was how small and cramped the front room was. Without ever being there before, I was bit overwhelmed as all the tables were taken, and the only place to really stand was in the waitress station (never feel good about that). After looking around, and walking down the back hallway, we discovered there is much, much more to Sheffield's than the front room, including more beers on tap...

Upon arrival I purchased an Ommegang Aphrodite from the front bar, which was really tasty. They have a really nice well rounded tap list in the front room, but upon moving to the back "Beer School" area, I was blown away by what they had on tap. They had Angel's Share (aged in Brandy barrels), which was the bees knees. We hung out in the corner for a few hours and enjoyed our experience. We did not try any BBQ.

Great tap selection, and a real nice bottle selection. Definitely on the list of return stops the next time I'm in the city. (1,224 characters)

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. (432 characters)
