    The restaurant touts the largest draft beer selection in Chicago with 114 unique local and global varieties and arguably one of the biggest outdoor patios downtown where you can enjoy them.

    Craft beer. Lots of it. And elevated bar food. Tempura spicy green beans, insane cheese curds, solid burgers. Def better food than the avg bar, but main draw is the insanely huge craft beer draft list

    Like beer? This place has a massive beer selection on tap!! The beer garden is also very nice. Definitely a great spot to enjoy delicious beer and food on Michigan Ave.

    Extensive beer menu and the servers will help you if you get overwhelmed. The food looked damn good. I'll have to try it next time. The outdoor seating is beautiful in the summer.

    Great location with a great beer selection but you pay for it. There are a few great beer places within walking distance that are cheaper.

    Over a hundred beers on tap. Good venue with outdoor seating below the Tribune Tower. Food is good too! Perfect complement to the beers on offer.

    The fish tacos are really quite good. Also, this place is known for their beer list, but the Whiskey selection is really quite good. See the last page of the menu.

    The Lamb Bolognese is made with a spaghetti-type pasta that actually has a hole in the middle (like a straw). This makes it cook evenly, adding to the deliciousness.

    Looking for 114 craft beers pouring from 360 taps? 120 of those on the huge patio? Most draft beer taps in Chicago? Sold!

    Definitely ask for a booth as it allows for better sound insulation or try to eat at the communals. Definitely front bar for eating/tasting, back bar for drinking/watching the game, volume on. Louder!

    Such a cozy restaurant, I mostly liked "around the world" beers on flights list and triple carmelite is the best one!

    Really enjoyed my English Ale and Remy Martin on the rocks. A little disappointed they don't stock my Martell. But it's all good.

    Great beer selection and outdoor seating, but my wallet was stolen out of my purse while I was eating dinner and the manager said they deal with things like that happening every day. Be careful!

    This place seats 900 people when the patio is open, food seems like typical bar food. Come for the patio and enjoy a cider! Then leave before the tourists flash mob you!

    Delicious salmon salad—fish was cooked perfectly, and the kale was made yummy with cheese and prosciutto.

    Very large outdoor patio. Food is just bar food, mostly, but the location makes it worth a visit. Service is excellent.

    Service was slow, and burger was more medium-well than medium-rare. However, points for a great patio and beer selection. Though I do wish they had Sours!

    Get a glass of ale and go with someone you don't need to talk to - it's so loud in here! But it's a good time.

    Thursday through Saturday, the kitchen stays open until 11, though you'd be well-advised to place an order by 10:45. Read more

    Service was spotty; seemed understaffed for the size. Fish and chips was good. The menu seems incredibly fish-heavy for a bar. Wouldn't mind a few more snack-type apps to go with all that beer.
