Too dark to properly evaluate the appearance of your beer. So depending on how serious you are in rating, that may be an issue.

The glassware was pretty weak. Weird little small glasses. But they were clean.

Selection was pretty damn good, including lots of top self beers. Bottles of every Trappist brewery minus Westvleteren. Founders, Goose Island, Unibroue.

Service was a bit snarky, but after a few tips, lightened up and was helpful. Not the best way to do service, but whatever. They were nice in the end.

They offered free samples. Pretty decent place.

Open every day of the year with about 700 whiskers and a couple of hundred beers to go with. They have great events with verticals, rare and limited releases, and tastings. Mike runs a hell of a place that is my favorite bar in the country. If you visit Chicago or live in the area and like whisky, beer, good service, or just having a damn good time you should definitely check out Delilah's.

2/21/15 - Excellent variety on tap and bottles, great selection of whiskey, nice bartenders, a bit pricey but not for the neighborhood. Overall great place to meet some friends and down some good beer and whiskey.

Delilah’s is a Whiskey lovers’ dream. However, their staff and owner are also extremely knowledgable and into their beers. They run a yearly Barrel Aged tasting event and another that is dedicated to Sour/Lambic and I attended both for the first time last year. Good tap and bottle selections are usually available, with some unique offerings available across the board.

Went in on a Sunday afternoon. Prob about ten other people there, and they were pretty loud.
I had a 3F Pride & Joy, but came primarily for a peek at the bourbon selection. They had a full array
of Pappy Van Winkle, which was exactly what I was looking for. The 23 yr topped out at $45, which seems to be normal for Pappy at this entry point in the market.They also have the largest
collection of liquor bottles that I ever saw in my life. Bartenders were very nice, and even gave us a flashlight to look at the menus. Did I mention that the place is very dark?

It is referred to as a punk rock bar, but I really didn't get that impression. I am sure it gets rocking later in the evening, but
they had some decent music playing. They have a movie every night, which was Elvis Presley
during my visit. There is a black velvet picture of Elvis prominently displayed in the lounging area.Prices were mid range, but the ambiance is priceless.
