America's Best Beer Bars

Slide 2 of 17

Hopleaf, Chicago

Located in Chicago’s diverse Andersonville neighborhood and named for a beer native to the islands of Malta (the origin of owner Michael Roper’s father), this large, airy gastropub specializes in both Belgian draughts and food, like mussels steamed in Wittekerke white ale. The upstairs lounge hosts private parties and events like Tuesday Funk, a monthly reading series featuring local poets, authors and essayists.
