CHICAGO | Fatpour Tapworks is one of the many sports bars on Division, and from the outside, and inside for that matter, there’s not much to distinguish it from the competition. Multiple screens playing the game, check, lots of sports paraphernalia, check. It’s loud, and the food is average, so why would you bother coming here? Well it’s a sponsor bar of the Wisconsin Badgers, so that’s a plus for any Badger fans, but for the average punter, beyond being a good spot to watch live sports if you’re in the area, the key attraction is the beer list.
The center of the two storey venue contains a glass enclosed cool room that houses the kegs the supply beer to Fatpour’s beer taps, which feature 50 unique beers, many of which are craft. Beers from the likes of 4 Hands, Bruery Terreux, Almanac, Goose Island and Revolution can be found on draft, and on the 100 strong bottle and can list you’ll find even more great beers from across the US and further abroad. Even better, Fatpour often hold special events which sees the taps featuring all kinds of interesting beers.
If you do visit, make sure to ask if there are any special tap takeovers happening at the time as sometimes these aren’t advertised. For example, when Goose Island’s Bourbon County Barrel Stout 2016 was released, Fatpour had a secret menu that featured not only the 2016 releases, but several vintages on draft and in bottles dating back several years. The only reason we knew was through word of mouth.
