Like other reviews it's not on the main drag, a little off it. Delicious beers, great stouts. They do a good job of serving, the staff is knowledgeable, the pale ales are numerous and we'll made. There's a see ball lounge upstairs and you can hear the balls rolling. Not a big tap room, but I enjoyed it. Highly recommended if youre in chicago check it out!!

Interesting spot with a unique layout. There was a private party happening (or it seemed) while I was there, but not a ton of lines of demarcation to know when or where I was supposed to be. Service was helpful, steering me into what I was looking to drink from the more many options.

A very hipster place with not a ton of things going on In the place, but it is all about beer and people working the place were experts. Extremely friendly with 10 taps going. Dog friendly. Went there after a wonderful day at Wrigley. I would go again. Imperial Pajamas was perfect. I picked up a bottle of 2016 Barrel aged.

On my visit to Begyle Brewing I could smell sweet wort from outside the building, but inside all that could be smelled was wet dog. Dogs were everywhere. They were laying in the walkways tripping people up, and sitting on the tables. Dog owners being dog owners, most of the dogs were being let do whatever they wanted in spite of other patrons, including myself, not wanting to be licked, brushed up against, and tripped.

As for the beer, it was solid. The coffee porter I have was well done. It was very coffee forward, but I was feeling that at the time. The three beers in the flight my brother-in-law ordered (which consisted of a two IPAs and a saison) were drinkable too (the saison being the best out of the bunch). I wouldn't hesitate to drink Begyle's beers again, and did, in fact, order a cask pour of their ESB on our next stop. It wasn't very good, but that was probably caused by how the people at Fountainhead had treated the cask (I got a bit too much oxidation which probably meant the cask had been on for too long, and I can't blame Begyle for that.).

The service at the beer counter was very fast. The beertenders were friendly, and knew their beers. My complaint (and for me this is a major complaint that I have had with many taprooms) is that none of the staff were policing the dog situation. They should have at the very least been telling people to keep their dogs out of the aisles so others could walk through unimpeded, and off the tables so that others could drink off of clean a surface (my sister and I both had allergic reactions (hives on our forearms and hands) due to a dog, or multiple dogs, clearly having been on the table we sat at.

Overall, the beer was good enough that my group would have stayed for another round if my sister and I wouldn't have gotten allergic reactions due to the poor cleanliness standards of the taproom staff.
