Hopleaf, Chicago: 3 reviews and 7 photos
Excellent Belgian Tavern/Bar on N. Clark, with suberb range of beer selections - over 200 in all, with and abundant selection on tap. I was introduced to the Hopleaf in Febraury 2006, after a VT meet-up with Dabs and David, dlandt, "it's fun having fun," and my friends Gerard and Janet. We had a merry time tippling. A Talking bar: it's an excellent place to pass an afternoon with a convivial social group. I like how they follow tradition and serve the Belgian beers each in its own particular glass. A beer for every taste, I would think.
In all, there were about two dozen beers on tap. Ten Belgian, about the same number American micros, and the others German or Canadian. I recommend the de Konick, a lovely pilsener style ale, or the Leffe Brun (Brown) ale - though you can't go wrong with the aptly named Delirium Tremens either.

They serve Belgian inspired food here as well, and there's a dining room in the back which is quieter and less beery than the very social front saloon. I'd like to try their mussels sometime.
