really dislike posting big chains but in this case Binny's does an amazing job trying to keep everything in inventory.


Hopleaf Bar  David Honorable Mention Full menu WiFi available Has an unusual or regional beer on tap. Specializes in Belgian Beers Specializes in Czech/Slovak Beers Specializes in German Beer Specializes in Italian Beers

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,,,,


Somehow have missed this place. Been in this off the beaten path(and down the alley) location for 8 plus years. It is a bottle shop and production facility. they make an IPA but the specialty appears to be wilds and sours, stouts and Belgian styles. I sampled a couple of their beers and all were delicious. Make your way over there and buy some beer. Also available in beer shops.


Local Option Bierwerker  Full menu WiFi available Brewpub. Has an unusual or regional beer on tap. Specializes in Belgian Beers Specializes in Czech/Slovak Beers Specializes in German Beer Growler fills available

Neighborhood bar/brewpub in a space where you not expect it. Specialize in German style beers but their guest list is well thought out with good variety. Kitchen closed on Monday. Menu looks great!


The Map Room  WiFi available Open 11am or earlier Specializes in Belgian Beers Specializes in German Beer Specializes in British Beers

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.


Une Année / Hubbards Cave  David Honorable Mention Full menu WiFi available Children friendly Closed Tuesday Brewpub. New entry in the Guide in 2020 Has an unusual or regional beer on tap. Specializes in Belgian Beers Bottle shop On the To Do List

Great Brewery, actually two in one. Une Année captures the essence of what Belgium beer is as good or better than anywhere I have been. Hubbard's Cave includes IPA's and Stouts to name but a couple. Always worth the journey and the journey from Chicago is about to get a bit shorter as the move to a new facility is imminent. This is the first brewery/taptroom included in this Chicago guide because it is worth the effort. In addition to the taproom there will now be barbecue centric food. Huge list of beers to go. Make the effort. You will be glad you did.
