I learned about this place from a newspaper column - not being from Chicago I guess it isn't surprising I hadn't heard of it through this site or other beer circles. I had high hopes, but somehow after Piece and Goose Island it seemed a disappointment, although there is certainly nothing wrong with it. Quite a few taps, a beer engine, and a decent bottle list. But for a city with a ton of great beer places (Sheffield's would certainly rival the best of what Columbus has to offer), it doesn't really stick out as superlative. Service was OK, but not really beer savvy. Tap list had some nice beers on it, but nothing really notable or outstanding. And the beer on the beer engine (Arcadia IPA) was a little weak.

A nice place, but I don't know that I'd go as far out of your way as I went out of mine to pay a visit.

Place is hopping before the second Phish show at Wrigley. Expansive place that looks equipped to handle all types of events and crowds. Legit beer selection of local, regional and national craft brands. A lot. Food we had was really tasty. Service is great considering huge crowd. Would definitely make a habit of this place if I lived in the area or visited again.

A brilliant bar. Actually three bars in one - each with its' own feel to it. Haven't had chance to check out the beer garden but the inside bars are outstanding. Great service, varied taplist and top notch BBQ on offer. Went during a quieter period so can't speak for Cubs game days but this was an outstanding experience.
