Milestone 400th stop on my world brewery tour - and what a nice one it was.

What I would consider a mega-nano brewery operating a 10 BBL system with beautifully unique serving tanks directly behind the bar. Brewery behind and to the side of the bar. No room for expansion and from talking to the brewer/bartender around 3:30 on a Tuesday, they have no plans to take over the world.

From top to bottom very nice beers including a wonderful sessionable CA Common/Cream Ale blend. Serious props for a true craft light beer with flavor. Hoppy wheat and a hoppy white IPA both very well done. I think it was the hipster meats shark that really got me excited (galaxy hops).

Only problem was the brewer/bartender was so cool he made the regular server lady seem a bit uptight. Hard to add another brewery into my Chicago travels rotation but this one will find a way.

BTW, AWESOME Vietnam sandwhich shop a couple of doors down. UrbanSpoon it and totally give it a try if you've never had Vietnam food. Cheap, quick, and super fresh quality ingredients.

Visited at 7pm on a Monday. Place was pretty packed and I got the last seat at the bar. Nice space but rather small. They only have 6 of their own on tap and anther 6 guest taps. Price is $6-8 a pint which is a touch high but not crazy. Service was very attentive. I didn't have any food, but the menu is upscale gastropub fare. Neither of the pints I had was noteworthy. Overall a decent place to add to my Chicago rotation, but not my first choice.

DryHop is a cool place in the heart of Chicago's trendy near North neighborhoods. Not a large place which gives it a neighborhood feel. The quality of the beer and food were decent. The service was nice and easy to talk too once they warmed up a little. The selection was ok...they mostly had Belgium and ipa beer...not stouts or porters which I thought was weird given it winter. We tried the pretzel and the pork/kimchi sliders...both which were excellent. Certainly worth the stop if you're in the hood.

this place is really pretty cool. a fairly new operation from what i understand, long and narrow space, probably packed all the time, but it was shoulder to shoulder on saturday night. neat to see the vertical stacking of what appeared to be fermenters and possibly serving vessels right behind the bar, i had not seen that set up before. aesthetically cool, probably a lot of work for the fine folks making this beer. limited beer menu in terms of offerings, no more than six or seven happening, but what a diversity of styles, i wasnt wanting for anything. a pale, an ipa, a double, but then it got interesting. a hoppy farmhouse, a pistachio milk stout, and a wheat based ipa with galaxy, all were tasty and well done. looks like they mix it up quite a bit and brew some rather small batches, im sure a great spot to visit regularly. the food menu was equally creative and well executed. i only had the pork buns, but they were impressive (if a bit under-portioned). prices a little steep too, but this is downtown chicago, what do i expect right? really a glorious combination of food and beer and atmosphere, amplified by the bustling scene and the classy holiday decorations adorning the walls. great spot to bring a date. will be back next time for sure.

My fiance and I stopped in and had a flight while we were in Chicago on vacation. Small place, not much selection, but it was all brewed in house. The beers we had were fairly good. Service was good. Didn't try the food.
