Named Draft Magazines Top 100 Beer Bar’s

Firkin
Libertyville, Illinois

“Though it lies in the Windy City’s shadow, this beer bar’s anything but suburban. Thirty taps and 55 bottles comprise a refreshingly tailored mix of American crafts (think Surly Furious and Great Lakes Nosferatu), Belgian imports, and Trappist classics. A well-edited spirits menu lures even beer loyalists with several Polish and Ukranian vodkas and nearly 30 tequilas. A simple yet delicious Asiago sourdough pretzel begins a menu that’s as eclectic as the décor — grilled Wahoo, Carribbean pork sandwiches, and escargot all make appearances, leaving no shortage of beer pairing experiments.
