Stopped off here while my fiancée was at class at Depaul as I needed some place new to go other than GI Clybourn.

Overall, this was a nice small bar tucked away on a corner on Chicago's North side. The bar has the aforementioned sign that you need 3 photo IDs. When I saw this, I thought to myself who actually has that many, but I think that is up more to scare away underagers than anything else as the guy took one look at my one Id and then let me in. The main sitting areas has a few booths, a few small tables and the bar. Outside in the back they have a beer garden that has picnic tables and another bar. This bar also has some different brews that the one inside so it is worth looking outside to see what they have. I was there at the time a cubs game just ended so on the whole, the crowd was yuppie, north side cubs fans, but given the neighborhood that is what I would expect to see most of the time.

I didn't try the food but they have a limited menu which revolves around a BBQ pit. Check it out on there website if you are planning to go. I didn't really see anyone eating there; only drinking. The one thing that I did like was that they had a little book that they called their beer almanac that described all of the beers that they have on tap and gave their ABV and country of origin. They also had about 15 taps and when I was there they had 3 New Holland beers on tap, Surly Furious, Allagash White, PBR, North Coast Old No. 38 Stout, SN Porter, Redhook ESB, and Laguintas Brown Sugga and Pilsner. Overall, I'd say this is a good place to stop by and have a drink with a friend since it is a relaxed atmosphere and has some good brews.

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.
