  1. That one picture looks like the Rock Bottom on State and Grand in Chicago, but that can’t be it… there’s no construction going on all around it!

  2. Ha! Yep that’s the one!

    I guess it’s a couple years old now? Maybe 2007 or 06?

  3. It’s a very interesting pix…

    Its a nice hang out..

  4. I love this poll. Anyone who has ever tried a decent micro brew should know a thing or two about good beer. Massive chains could not brew a good beer to save there lives. It would be accurate to compare all these establishments to Coors Lite. Nice poll but lets get real. These places and that is what they should be called, gave Miller lite a face lift.

  5. D.C. Chophouse and Brewery should have been on there!

  6. Woo Hoo

    179 votes, guess that preety much cements it.
    The fact that Brewpub and chain should never appear in the same sentence?
