AWFUL SERVICE - our DRUNK bartender ignored us the entire time. Losers galore at the bar. Not chill at all.

Always on point and beer is well chosen and vast, most of the staff is passionate about beer which really helps. Great beer community and superb chef who cares about what is in his food and tells you where it came from.

An awesome craft beer & eatery located near Chicago!
The place was hoping and there were not many open seats. Its located near the downtown area with many parking spots and walking activities.
The beer selection was great. Dogfish Head, Three Floyds, Stone and many Chicago options.
Food was very good and they source quite a bit of local foods.
The place is would be suitable for families, but it did seem to get packed more as the night went along. If you are within shouting distance of this place, check it out for sure!

Alright here's a place that was an amazing and I mean top 100 beer bars in America stuff. Well went back tonight and all i gotta say is, im not impressed at all anymore. Every single bartender in this place is drunk!!! I don't care if its a benefit or not, im sorry service still comes first and drinking comes last. Being a bartender myself there's no excuse to shitty service to other people, because you've been busy drinking/talking with other people from the benefit. Food was amazing as always and came quick, but no thanks to the bartenders (a food runner brought it to me) actually if I recall the bar back took my order, shit man he should be running the place.. time for new staff members.

Edit: NOV 2015

Fries topped with pulled pork and Stone Arrogant Ale cheese sauce, steamed mussels in garlic, and a few beers from the huge beer menu....all very good.
