If you are a Chicagoan and love beer, you have been to Hopleaf Bar. If not, what on earth are you waiting for?! I used to live within walking distance of this stellar bar, which made for many a tipsy night. In fact, I hosted some couchsurfers from Vienna a few years back, and we decided to make a human train through the bar. Fortunately, I was invited back after such debauchery:)
The generous and notable tap and bottle lists never disappoint and will leave you wanting more. This is the place where I lean heavy on the Belgian beers because they have so many tasty suds to choose from. They also offer food to write home about, and I typically nosh on frites or mac and cheese. I would love to indulge in a full meal; however, there wouldn't be enough room in my belly for more than one beer.
Please note - no one under 21 is allowed in the venue (including infants) and you will be checked at the door.
Hopleaf is observing their 25th anniversary year, so hop on over and join the celebration. Prost!
