Went here late afternoon on a Saturday with my wife for a few slices and beers. Everything about this place was exceptional. We were immediately seated by a friendly host who gave us our choice of two tables. Within a minute of sitting down our server was taking our drink. She was very patient with my indecisiveness over the beer menu. I finally settled on the Belgian Blonde "Cuffs and Collars." Very nice selection of their own beers as well as guest drafts and bottles.

Our food was delivered very quickly and the goat cheese in marinara was fantastic. Our pizza followed and is probably one of the best pizzas I've had in Chicago.

If your in the area, or are looking to make a trip, this place is worth a stop.

As a side note, Piece has a "To Go" special on Sundays that allows you get a large pizza and a growler for $25.

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.

Came in on a Wednesday night and it was still busy. We got sat in 10 minutes and server was wonderful.

Piece Brews are absolutely delicious. The Pizza is great. Our server said that the pizza was burnt and they gave us a free appetizer and round of beers on the house. It wasn't necessary but greatly appreciated.

I recommend Piece to any beer lover as well as foodie.

Great place. Really good pizza and pizza dessert! Nice beer selections and friendly staff. Cool vibe overall. Tried a few of their brews and really enjoyed them. Wish they had a location closer to me cuz I would go back consistently. Anyone coming into town make sure to try this local gem out.

Definitely has more of the pizzeria feel than brewery. Lucky for everyone they're good at both. Pizza and beer are both great. Handful of solid beers with a strong good menu. Parking is typical north side(sucks), but worth a stop if you're on the north side.

Read the great reviews of this place before a trip to Chicago and decided it was a must-see. Piece did not disappoint. At first, we weren't sure we were getting in - the door jockeys said they were at "max capacity" even though I could see at least 3 empty tables for four through the window. In no less than 2 minutes, we were able to get inside. It was in fact packed, but we found a couple at the bar getting ready to leave and snagged their spots.

Now, this is where it gets impressive. I said this place was packed and I'm not joking, it was wall-to-wall people. But our service at the bar was fabulous. The bartenders weren't rushed to serve us at all and gave us their undivided attention when they were helping us. Beers ordered were delivered in a very timely manner, again, given "max capacity." Beers were great - no complaints there. Good variety, well-described by the staff. I stuck with the Full Frontal Pale Ale; husband had the Veda Belgian Black and the You Will Fail IPA. We were both impressed our choices.

The pizza - I don't even know where to start with this pizza. Good, great, amazing... there aren't enough adjectives to describe how good it was. Thin, crispy, fresh toppings. We ordered a medium "Plain" with chicken, sauteed mushrooms, and fresh basil. By the time my husband and I were completely stuffed, we still had appx 3 or so pieces left, so the medium is a good-sized pie.

If you're planning a trip to Chicago, do make the trip to Piece!

I stopped by Piece with some friend while on the way home from Dark Lord Day. I really liked the atmosphere. It had the perfect combination of modern, hip, and old fashioned. The music was eclectic (jazz, elvis, hank williams, indie rock). The people were eclectic (bohemians, Japanese business men, hippies with dreds so long they have to put their hair in their coat pocket). The service was very good. It seemed that our waitress was covering half the brewpub, but she still managed to be friendly, and prompt. She was also able to give good descriptions of the beers. The beer was as good as I've had at other great Midwestern brewpubs like Minneapolis Town Hall, or The Great Dane. The Top Heavy Hefe was the perfect antidote to a weekend overdose of RIS and DIPA at DLD. The kolsch they had on was one of the most flavorful I have tasted. The Egyptian Pale Ale reminded me a lot of Bell's Hopslam. While the Big Black Maria was a very well balanced coffee porter. The pizza was some of the best I've ever had. Great toppings with the perfect crust. My sister lives a couple blocks from Piece so I guess I will be visiting her more often to give myself an excuse to hit up the brewpub.
