Walked over to Delilah's from Local Option on a snowy winter's night. Love Chi-town and appreciate the hospitality.
Itinerary assistance from many BA's who provided suggestions and comments.

Old west-style facade with "Delilah's" in large letters.

Walked into small vertical room, bar on left and tables along right wall.
Excellent "classic" punk tunes and Army of Darkness playing on the flat screens.

Brew selection was deep and varied, including sampled 3Floyds, GLBC, and Daisy Cutter from Half Acre.

Pool table upstairs, friendly bartenders, who, though slammed on a Saturday, were helpful and efficient.

Top notch, recommended, with the caveat that if you are adverse to punk music and Goth in general, find another locale.

What a helluva beer joint in the city!

Somewhat out of place in the mostly yuppie stronghold of south Lakeview/West Lincoln Park, this is the kind of beer bar ya want to hit if you're of the slightly punk, rockabilly sensibility musically-speaking, but with a palette for great brews.

The bar consists of two levels: the downstairs contains the main bar with enough Belgian/English/German bottles, American craft draughts and a stellar hard-liquor selection to satisfy the most fickle of drinkers. And they keep a quality selection of wines, too. The physical layout downstairs is one of dank, dark nicotine-riddled walls that support local artists' work on them. The jukebox is chock full of local, national and international punk, rockabilly, hard-core country and 80's Brit rock. The focal point of the downstairs is the long bar, and the awesome staff are ready to serve up some great libations, and usually equal good tales.

The upstairs contains a smaller bar, with just a few draughts but still a nice bottle selection, plus there are pool tables and an 'Adams Family' pinball machine (yes!).

I think that the off-the-beaten path beer tourist would do well to seek out Delilah's. I know that other good beer oasis' get more press, but that's OK. Delilah's is sort of the dark horse great beer joint in the city. Going in with the mindset that you may encounter some slightly seedy, but good-hearted and interesting patrons, you'll have a wonderful time. This place is a spiritual kin to the Toronado in San Francisco in my opinion.
