Ahh this place. I'd been here years ago, after driving by dozens of times and finally stopping to confirm there wasn't much worth stopping for. There's a cool old faded Old Style mural on the side of the building complete with a waterfall, ponder it's decaying image of purity while roaring planes bound for O'hare soar overhead. There's a heavy vibe of malaise here if you hang out in the parking lot long enough... just wait for it.

In recent years they've added to their beer selection and update on beermenus. Most interesting is a small walk-in cooler of all craft beer. After the first look, i'd missed it the first time, all the other cooler doors were macro, and the warm shelves were fairly limited craft offerings. Some Lagunitas, Founders, O'so, FFF, Rev cans. Once inside the walk-in cooler however, first impressions changed.

Rows of cold craft beer, around 200+ according to beer menus. 2013 cans of Deviant Dales, G'Knight, Old Chub, and Dale's. DFH Hellhound, Namaste, FFF bombers: Dreadnaught, Calumet Queen, Brian Boru, and an empty spot for Rye Da Tiger. A couple Bolt Cutters, Wild Onion cans, Uinta 750s, Firestone, O'so, and quite a few more.

Counter service was friendly, when I asked if they sold beer glasses, I got a free plastic cup. For drinking in the parking lot with the other schlubs I guess...

Fun mafia history trivia: The Chicago Outfit once held meetings in the office building on Lively Ave. across Higgins Road.
