what a cool spot, with a couple of entrances, one for beer and pizza to go, the other for the main restaurant and bar. we did not eat, but the pizzas coming out looked and smelled sensational, and i will certainly be back to try them. the beers were really solid, it sounded like the brewer had quite the resume, and the beer, while somewhat simplistic in terms of styles on the menu, absolutely showed that experience. the porter was probably my favorite, but the pale and kolsch were also outstanding. they had some neat guest beers here too, so assuredly something for everyone. the space is big and warm, really long bendy bar with some great staff back there. our dudes were really friendly, happy to chat, and eager to share all their stuff. they also were full of information about the chicago beer scene, and enhanced our trip tremendously. the porter was the winner for me, lots of chocolatey layers, and a smooth full bodied feel. perfect for a chilly saturday afternoon. i look forward to coming back, gorging myself on pizza, and hunkering down for a nice long session. these guys are really worth checking out.

I've stopped here on a couple of recent trips to Chicago, usually after a session at Link's Taproom around the corner. It is always packed when I try to stop in (~9 or 10PM, both weekdays and weekends), so be prepared to wait or have a Plan B. Their beer is solid, but the reason to come is the New Haven style apizza. Highly recommended all around.

Good beer that you can't get outside the brewpub. A couple of the beers were 4/5 in my opinion. Others were average. Service was okay, but not great. Pizza (Atomic) was awesome--something different (thin crust) than the crowded deep dish places. Bottom line: very good beer and great pizza make this a place worth visiting when in Chicago.

My favorite place in Chicago for pizza and beer. I always thought the pizza was better than the beer, but since I've been going there, they've stepped up the beer game, both with the house brewed stuff, and the guest taps. They make a few great beers that go great with eating pizza- The Weight and Golden Arm come to mind. Great thin crust, New Haven style pizza bucks the Chicago deep-dish trend, but I'd rather be eating the thin stuff when drinking any day . Cool natural lit wide open room in the center/bar area, but the booths can be dim and dark. I suggest going during the day, or right when they open for lunch. Sunday Pizza and a Growler to go for 20 Bucks is an awesome deal. I go back every time I visit Chicago.

The beer is always second to none. The Wicker Park vibe is nice and laid back. My wife and I love the pizza. You just have to go during the day.
