One hundred-plus bottles and 30 taps—many locally produced specifically for this rowdy bar—liven up an otherwise quiet neighborhood stretch. The skull-centric heavy metal details and bearded craft beer geeks make for quite a scene, especially in milquetoast Lincoln Park. If your idea of heaven involves eating a hulking po’ boy while listening to Bloodbath and washing it down with an obscure Danish stout, welcome home.
