Don't know how i have avoided this place for so long. Sunday at 11 am, place is full. Cool atmosphere, great selection of Revolution stuff on tap as well as a good bottle selection of others. I thought their Paddy Wagon stout on tap that I had was just a bit too cold; could just be my personal taste there. They DO have a kids menu, although it's not listed on the website menu (basically burger, pizza, chicken tenders ... standard kids fare). Food is high-end bar food. I had some really nicely breaded fish n chips. Quality cod there too, not the cheap stuff. Good fries. Service was a bit spotty and indifferent for my liking, but still pleasant. A few big, well-placed TVs showing the Bulls game. Street parking is in relatively decent supply, for Chicago.

Did not have anything to eat. No flights, but "samples" offered at 2 to 4 dollars per pour. Good music and friendly vibe; neighborhood feeling and lots of friendly folk. Knowledgeable staff. Oh yea, tasty draft beer!

The beer was great first time having it. The place had a great garage/factory type feel. The tour guide was new which she pointed out and I've been on several so it wasn't a big deal. The girls behind the counter had plenty of info and wereally very chatty about the beers and it was one of my better brewery experiences.

Good food, good beer. Their taproom at the brewery is excellent too. One of my favorite brew pubs/breweries in the Chicago area. Getting a lot better at their barrel program.
