Hopleaf Ranks In Thrillest’s Top Choices For Both Beer and Bar Food

hopleaf-1Hopleaf located at 5148 N. Clark has been serving the community since 1992. The beer selection here is staggering. Their focus is on Belgian brews and many of the tap selections are served up properly in their own glasses specifically designed to enhance the beer’s unique qualities.

So it is no wonder that back in December 2015, Thrillest praised them in its ‘Top 10 Beer Bars In Chicago‘. But now Hopleaf is getting just as known for its unique bar food as well. Thrillest has honored the popular Andersonville hang-out again in its ‘Best Bars With Unbelievable Food‘ write-up.

Teaming up food selections with the perfect beer is taken very seriously at Hopleaf. The steamed mussels seem to be everyone’s favorite dish. In the Thrillest article, they said:

Honestly, you’ve heard about the food at Hopleaf. Haggard men living in caves on the shores of Greece have heard about the mussels at Hopleaf. It’s a fact, according to science. You’ve also heard about the beer selection, which includes a Tongerlo Blond Abbey ale that won the “World’s Best Beer” award. Actually, this is just a friendly reminder that you should probably visit Hopleaf soon.

Best to visit this local favorite on the weekdays, as weekends can get quite busy.
