Old Chicago is a national chain that serves up staples such as pasta and pizza along with 110 different brews. The Old Chicago on Campbell Avenue features more than 25 beers on tap, including ones you might not expect, like Arrogant Bastard Ale, a brew with 7.2 percent alcohol. Local-favorite Nimbus also is on tap. Outside of their wide selection of beer, the folks at Old Chicago also serve up a truckload of pizza and have pool tables. Old Chicago is good for a casual restaurant-bar experience and, especially, hard-to-find beers.
