Beer Quality Beer Selection Food Service Overall
Good So So So So So So So So
This place is under new ownership and management, and it shows. It used to have a decent beer selection. Now it has three tap handles: Goose Island Honker's, Three Floyds Alpha King, and Buttwiper -- in other words, three beers you can find together at about 3,872 other bars across the Chicago area. Except that there wasn't actually anything on the Three Floyds and Goose Island lines, leaving Buttwiper as the only tap selection. Exasperated, I turned to the bottle selection where I found the most exotic selections to be Leffe and Hoegaarden. I ordered a Leffe and the bartender opened it and placed it in front of me as if I were to drink it out of the bottle like it was Miller Lite. I asked for a glass and she gave me a shaker glass even though they had La Chouffe tulip glasses there; plus, the glass was filthy. It became quickly apparent to me that these people know f#*k-all about beer, so rather than explain to her that you don't serve a Belgian abbey ale in a shaker glass, I simply asked her to bring me a clean glass. Food was mediocre -- I had a barbecue burger that was served with luke-warm tater-tots and the cheapest barbecue sauce imaginable -- something akin to Open Pit. If you're going to be that cheap, at least spring for something halfway resembling actual barbecus sauce like KC Masterpiece. While she was flaky and knew nothing about beer, the bartender was actually pretty nice and so was the clientele. I don't want to be too hard on this place because it actually seems like a pretty decent little neighborhood corner bar; but the point is, that's all it is any more. This is no longer a "beer bar" and it doesn't look like they're trying to pretend otherwise.
