Another new addition to the Brooklyn bar scene. This one is clearly oriented toward the Chicago immigrant missing a slice of home.

The great thing about this place is the selection. There are a large number of taps with a variety of beers although they seem to focus on the Goose Island brand. Maybe I am too much of a purist, but I try to avoid places with too many InBev beers.

At any rate, the food was good, in that greasy bar food kind of way.

The beers were a touch overpriced. I was surprised when a small glass of Southern Tier Crème Brulee cost me $9.50.

Nonetheless, one of the best bars in the Bay Ridge area of Brooklyn.

Great food, small pub menu, some authentic chicago based items, great brews 5 goose island taps and a two brothers tap to keep with the chicago theme, craft beer and sports go together well and this place proves it, and hockey is always on! if the blackhawks are on they get the sound but they do play all the other games from around the NHL.
