2005 W. Division St. 773-698-8940
Basketball affiliation: Wisconsin
The digit: 52. The number of beers on draft at Fatpour.
This beer-centric Ukrainian Village spot has stiff competition from plenty of other sports bars on the Division strip, but it's managed to earn its own following with dozens of draft beers, plenty of burgers and bar snacks (including Wisconsin nods such as a Badger burger [$13] and fried cheese curds [$8]) plus TVs that guarantee an equally good view from the bar, high-top tables and wrap-around booths. The crowd leans masculine, but anyone can appreciate the signature Fatpour, 22 ounces of draft beer served in a frosty mug. Month-long specials include $4 Sam Adams drafts and $5 Big Gingers (2 Gingers Irish whiskey and ginger ale), and the bar will open at 11 a.m. for the Big Ten Tournament and March Madness games.
