River North’s nightlife-oriented scene doesn't leave a whole lot of room for craft beer bars. Centennial sticks out (in a good way) as a two-story brew beacon with lofty log cabin feels and a salvaged steel bar. The spot offers 36 draft craft beers, sorted by style, as well as a list of bottle and cans. An upscale chef-focused menu comes from the mind of Ben Sheagren, a Hopleaf vet dishing his own PEI mussels, croquettes and a delicious mac and cheese. With suds from the likes of Shorts, Miskatonic, Begyle and 3 Floyds, this beer bar seems destined to become a happy hour haunt.

Vitals:

Atmosphere: Taking a page from the book on cabin shabby chic, this beer bar is outfitted in dark wood, reclaimed materials and steel touches.

What to eat: Mac and cheese or PEI mussels are no-brainers. 

What to drink: Beers rotate regularly, so if you’re not an aficionado, ask your server.

Where to sit: Small parties will be seated toward the front of the restaurant, but you can always belly up to the bar for happy hour.
