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.

This is a beer lover's paradise! They have an incredible beer menu with many beers on tap and even more in their bottle selection. We came here on a cold Monday evening and were welcomed by the friendly bartender who was very friendly and attentive. The special for the night was $1 off Belgians, although I didn't order any of...

This is a beer aficionado's must. Great selection, cool staff, and the vibe is chill. There are a few quirks, namely that it's cash only and does not serve food. It's an easy walk from the Blue Line, California stop, which makes it very convenient and safe (afterwards!).

We stopped here for one drink and stayed for a few hours chatting with the locals! The beer selection was one of the largest I've seen and there was certainly an option for everyone. The ambiance reminded me of an old-fashioned professor's office with dark wood, National Geographic magazines on one wall, and maps along the others. The bartender was... More

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.

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
