Updated: List of Beer Bars of Chicago

Places you might see us...

Below is our best effort to comprise a comprehensive THR-approved "List of Beer Bars of Chicago." Mind you, there are certainly plenty of places in Chicago not on this list where you can get a decent beer. In fact, they're all over the city. However this list is curated to those spots where not only is the variety impressive, but the staff is knowledgeable & the atmosphere is unmatched. And, sorry suburbs – city only, this time.
