This come-as-you-are sister to the stalwart Lake View brewery DryHop is a breath of fresh air on an increasingly yoga-pantsy stretch of Southport. Its six flavorful drafts steer clear of becoming total hoppy blowouts. Try to vulture a stool (seating is limited) and settle in at the nabe’s comfiest spot. 3446 N. Southport Ave., 773-270-4272
