Help with Chicago beer scene?

I'm visiting Chicago for three nights and looking for a good outdoor beer scene. We're staying at the Hyatt on East Wacker, but willing to take the El as needed.

In a search for beer gardens, I found the Landshark Beer Garden on Navy Pier....definitely not what I had in mind. I'm primarily looking for something that has more of a neighborhood focus (that doesn't mind an out-of-towner). While a great beer selection is great, it's not necessarily a must - I'm looking for a great atmosphere/experience.

Already planning on a weekday Cubs game and will be exploring that neighborhood after the game.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...and I can always reciprocate for anyone visiting Boston.

Many thanks in advance.
