Hundreds of travel books and guides line the shelves of this globe-trotter's tavern. Peruse that tome on Fuji or Antarctica while sipping a pint of one of the 20-odd draft beers available.

No frills, no food, just an unbelievable and rotating beer menu that rivals any bar and any city.Every bartender is super friendly and a beer guru and has a full know;ledge base of styles, flavors and ingredients. This is not a bar, its an experience and journey through complex beers and basic ales. They have an engine and if your... More

I stopped by this place on the advice of my 21 year old nephew and I was really happy I did. They have a Beer Menu that's beyond anything I've ever seen before in Chicago and an updated daily featured beer specials of the day. In total they have about 200 different Beers with about 15 or 20 specials on... More

Great local bar that also has a nice morning cup of coffee to kick things off. Relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff. The beer selection is usually pretty good and they will have some hard to come by brews available. Get there early on weekends because i does fill up.

This is a wonderful dive in bar if you are in Chicago. They have great beer collection of ales and IPA's. Plus the fun part is the Map part of the bar. The bar has lots of NATGeo books, travel books, and nature books to look into. Its always a fun experiences here. Outside all the bling and glimmer of... More

I dropped by for a foreign language event on a Sunday afternoon, so I can't really say anything about the service or the drinks, but I did really like the atmosphere. It was really chill (almost didn't feel like a bar, it might be because I was there during daylight house) and the decor was very nice. The table tops... More

I'm usually a beer snob, and this was one of the few places that had even more of a selection than I could ask for. It was recommended to me by a Chicago local on Localfu - I had no idea it existed but it was well worth the trip! Great place to kill a night with friends and tons... More

Killer draft selection in Bucktown. Great neighborhood bar you'll enjoy hanging out in. We sure did! A local favorite and you can see why.

I stopped here on a Saturday morning looking for a place to grab some coffee and maybe breakfast and work for an hour or so. They had a small selection of pastries from a local bakery that all looked delicious. I had a (very reasonably priced, for Chicago) latte and a savory pastry which the bartender kindly offered to toast... More

You know, there are some places that you go to and say it is what it is. This is one of them. It is located on North Hoyning. They do not serve food when I went, but lots of options nearby. I love this city, more reviews coming. The service was top notch, they knew their beers. But it was... More

The greatest bar ever. Period. Great beer, friendly staff, interesting patrons. I love this place and pay a visit on every trip to Chicago. They only take cash, so be prepared.
