    I am going to be in Chicago for the Super Bowl with my wife and another couple. Looking for a Craft Beer Bar that will be showing the game that is not going to be crazy. We are all craft drinkers going down there to have dinner at The Publican on Friday and hit up a couple other places.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I'd be all over Haymarket if I were you. It's reasonably close to Publican, it's BIG and has TVs everywhere. Best of all, they are turning out some of the best local craft brews around right now and always have a nice variety of guest taps going.

    I thought the SB was in New Orleans this year.

    Haymarket is a really good call. They have a well priced and curated beer list (home & guest) and decent food. They have plenty of TVs too.

    If you're looking for an event, Chicago Beer Geeks is hosting one. It looks like Lagunutas is sponsoring so my bet is that it will be mostly their beer (and the reference on the info page to lemon drop shots does trouble me...). But if you want an all inclusive night, this would work.
