Now Cultivate which is an offshoot of Forbidden Root Michelin Starred Restaurant and unusual but excellent brewery
Friendly neighborhood brewery on what they call Chicago's Malt Row. 100m from Dovetail Brewery and many others in the vicinity. Bring the dog, lunch and/or friends.....Lots of seating..
German themed brewery in what is known as Malt Row. Steps from Begyle Brewery, both with different focuses makes the trip to one better when you also visit the other. A super short walk from Brown Line stop on Irving Park. Close by Jerry's Lincoln Square, Bad Apple and Half Acre Lincoln Avenue.
NOW CLOSED. Neighborhood pub/restaurant with great selection of beers and Scotch whiskies. Great rooftop deck.
Taproom at the production brewery with lots of space and tours. In the same sphere, walking and shouting distance are Great Central Beer, Finch's(production only), On Tour, and All Rise. Industrial area.
Sadly the original home of Half Acre Brewery has closed down after 13 years and all the operations have be moved to the Balmoral facility a few miles north. The good news is that Hop Butcher Brewery will be taking over the space and opening their first brick and mortar facility.
Before you could get a selection at most places Hopleaf was the place to go. Started off as one the best beer centric bars in Chicago way before the craft beer thing. Specializing in Belgian beer they then opened a Belgian restaurant which ultimately expanded to another open storefront. Good food, great beers. Belgian beers rule here. Do not bring the kids because they do not not allow them at anytime. Still as good as ever,,,,
Now closed. Was a Grateful Dead themed sandwich shop with a great collection of beers. shawarma!
Taproom and event space with a good collection of brews
Pizza and Beer Brewpub and does well at both. (started by a member of Cheap Trick)
Excellent sandwiches, burgers, salads with tasty vegan and veggie options. 25 taps which change with good consistency.
Travel themed pub. One of the first to have a giant selection of domestic and foreign beers going back to the 90's, that would be 1990's. A cafe in the morning. Alcohol served after 11am. Use to have free food on tuesdays each week focusing on a different country. Worth the journey.
Bar and Restaurant with great beer selection and good food. Nice comfortable place to drink and eat well. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. Plenty of parking. Local sports on TV
