A reasonably sized beer bar, a bit more of a hipster vibe (especially from the staff the night we were there) than Green Lady down the street. They have food, but we did't try it. The beer selection is excellent, they were having a Perennial tap takeover of sorts the night we were there and we took advantage. Service was good, if a bit unrushed, and the beer quality was superb. Definitely a must stop in Chicago.

Relatively smaller tap list by today's standards (12), but packs a serious punch. FFF's, Mikkeller, Surly, Off Color all seem to have a big presence. Always an interesting selection with a lot of beers you don't often see on tap. Bartenders are knowledgeable and friendly without being pretentious. Food has sometimes taken a minute to get but is worth the wait. Love this place!!!
