Five Chicago bars made it onto Draft Magazine’s list of “America’s 100 Best Beer Bars 2014.”
What qualifies a bar for the top 100 has changed, the magazine writes. The focus is now on the overall experience rather than how many taps a place has. It boils down to “having well-cared for, thoughtfully selected beer with an eye toward variety, trends and tradition, in the kind of place you’d want to stay awhile, delivered by someone who knows their stuff.”
Here are Chicago bars that made the list:
1670 W. Division St.
1970 W. Montrose Ave.
5148 N. Clark St.
1102 W. Webster Ave.
1949 N. Hoyne Ave.
