Its not easy to describe a place that is really like no other I have been in. It appeals to me in many areas but unfortunately as a suburban dweller I don't get down there as much as I would like, besides before and after the ballgame.
There are 4 separate bar areas, each with quite an exciting supply of American craft beers within. Monthly specials offer a variety of tap beers that usually aren't normally available, so this allows for special tastings at a discounted price, plus the seasonal selection is always huge and usually on tap.
The main bar in front may be a little cramped, but it has the best selection overall, but as you move through the place, towards the rear through a little hallway will put you into the Beer School Bar, which offers its own selection of taps and has an impressive beer can collection, as well as unused taps all around. As you move south the next bar shares the wall with the barbecued meat smoker, and it too has its own beers too. And don't forget the fourth area, the beer garden, resplendent with taps too.
They serve Memphis barbecue and they do it well too.
This is a place worthy of repeated visits, if not to see how well they adapt to the seasons.

Hey now...this is a fine beer spot! Perfect to hit up after a Cubs game, which is exactly what we did....multiple rooms, and areas, plenty of out door space...several bars, all with high quality craft available and flowing....truly a great atmosphere and a fine place to hit up if ya find yourself in the area .... didn't try any of the food options, so really cant comment on that aspect of this establishment.

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.

Excellent service, outstanding food (try the grilled cheese), and a phenomenal beer list. I don't drink when having a business lunch, but I make an exception when visiting Sheffield's. Love this place.

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.
