Its not easy to describe a place that is really like no other I have been in. It appeals to me in many areas but unfortunately as a suburban dweller I don't get down there as much as I would like, besides before and after the ballgame.
There are 4 separate bar areas, each with quite an exciting supply of American craft beers within. Monthly specials offer a variety of tap beers that usually aren't normally available, so this allows for special tastings at a discounted price, plus the seasonal selection is always huge and usually on tap.
The main bar in front may be a little cramped, but it has the best selection overall, but as you move through the place, towards the rear through a little hallway will put you into the Beer School Bar, which offers its own selection of taps and has an impressive beer can collection, as well as unused taps all around. As you move south the next bar shares the wall with the barbecued meat smoker, and it too has its own beers too. And don't forget the fourth area, the beer garden, resplendent with taps too.
They serve Memphis barbecue and they do it well too.
This is a place worthy of repeated visits, if not to see how well they adapt to the seasons.

A brilliant bar. Actually three bars in one - each with its' own feel to it. Haven't had chance to check out the beer garden but the inside bars are outstanding. Great service, varied taplist and top notch BBQ on offer. Went during a quieter period so can't speak for Cubs game days but this was an outstanding experience.

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.
