Links Taproom for...links. I got a chicken link with stout mustard and Dragon's Milk onions that was delicious. But the main reason to go is for their beer list.
Lagunitas Brewery has a great menu, and you guessed it--beer.
Three Floyds Brewing is about an hour outside of Chicago with an interesting, fairly eclectic menu. And beer.
Jimmy's Bar and Grill in Downtown Naperville has some good bar food. And beer. It's also a cool little area to walk around in. Lots of restaurants and shops and a river walk.
Goose Island Clybourne has a good menu. Once again, beer. Also, there's a Binny's behind it that has an amazing selection of liquor and beer.
If you haven't picked up on my theme yet, well, read harder.
