    The Wrigley-area playpen has all the smoked meats and barbecue diners would want. But venture toward the back bar/smoker room and stay warm while sipping on a bar from Sheffield's rare beer cooler. Read more

    Plenty of picnic seating abounds, the center of the garden is anchored by a high-boy bar to set your beers and trees provide ample shade during the peak summer months. Read more

    The beer garden is legendary, as is the beer selection. Pros know that the best action can be found at "Beer School" -- the bar-within-the-bar inner sanctum offering its own epic tap list.

    This is a great place to take any craft beef geek. They have three separate bars with different beer offerings (I like beer school in the the back the best). Each month they feature a certainbrewery

    Great beer selection & environment. Includes several rooms/bars and an awesome beer garden. If you ever see them hosting a beer dinner, jump on the chance to go.

    If you enjoy loud dinners, that's for you! The big patio is a plus since the inside bar can be quite noisy. Food menu looked interesting and our choices were fairly good.

    Cozy bar that is actually a lot bigger than it looks! It has a few smaller rooms that have their own theme, including a smoker and beer school. Huge beer list!

    The nachos are really good. Try them with brisket. Also the white pizza. Good selection of beer. Went in winter so no beer garden. Will be back for it though

    For those 30 days when winter is gone, this place is as close to heaven as you’ll get—pint glasses of basic brew and a good plate of BBQ on a picnic table. It’s the simple pleasures in life.

    It's called Sheffield's because the bar is on Sheffield. Also, they have a large sign that says Chicago. That's because the bar is in Chicago. On Sheffield.

    Go to the back on your left. The beers are better, it's cozy, the staff is cooler, and the smoke makes every beer taste like Alaskan Smoked Porter or Stone Smoked Ale.

    This place is nothing special. They said its the best beer garden in Chicago, total BS. Its a backyard frat house full of pale skinned tank top wearing 23 year old backwards hatted quasi hipsters.

    Three bars with a diverse selection of craft beers. I prefer the 'Beer School Bar' which is between the other two areas. The 3rd bar is closest to the patio.

    Get the Pulled Pork Sandwich - Sheffield's Style (FKA The Pork Melt). One of the best things I have ever eaten.

    One of my favorite beer gardens in the city. Far enough from Wrigley. Shaded by an old oak tree.

    Make sure you get out of here before they close the patio at 11 in the summer. It gets uncomfortably packed inside shortly thereafter.

    you can get beer anywhere. what's unique about Sheffield's are the BBQ bites. if you don't like those, you're a fascist.

    Ask your server or bartender for the beerschool draft list. They keep the cool/ hard to find beers in back.

    Treat yourself to a glass of Dragon's Milk. It will get you buzzed fast! Only get it from the tap, not from a bottle. Read more
