Drinkin' On the Chain Crawl-- Part 5

Continuing listing on commenting on the 38 bars on the Chain of Lakes here in northeastern Illinois that took part in the 2011 Chain Crawl. A great idea and it gives you something to do and new places to go. there were several downriver ones I'd never been to before.

Hitting Places on Nippersink Lake.


I am a member of the Sons of the American Legion here at this post. Great beer prices: 50 cent 10-oz drafts on Monday and $1 all other days. One of the few American legions in the US on the water. We hang out here a lot. I used to deejay here as well.

It was a boat company back in the early 1900s and the beams from which the boats were suspended during building can still be seen.

Across the US-12 from a 1930s art deco gas station.


It's been a bar at least since the 1920s. For a long time it was the Old Style Inn, named after a favorite local beer. Still has an old tin ceiling and recently expanded a walkout area by the road overlooking the lake. Advertise the lowest drink prices on the Chain. One of their drafts is a 32 ounce Mason Jar for $3.

More to Come. --RoadDog
