Children friendly

Bring the kids, children are welcome at the following places.


friendly in many ways. staff is cheerful and informative, children are welcome and your dog is welcome. cats? maybe..... The beer is not quite my style but that does not seem to hurt business. A lot of malt forward beers that are well constructed but not my thing. Probably yours or at least someone you know. Check it out.

BiXi Beer  Full menu WiFi available Children friendly Open 11am or earlier Brewpub. Has an unusual or regional beer on tap. Growler fills available

Have not tried the food but on a recent bicycle ride stopped in and they were nice enough to let me sample many of their beers. In wine and beer reviews you see ingredients and flavors that we never taste. Bixi's beers showcased each and every flavor and ingredient they advertised in the beer. If they said cardamom, you tasted it. I will make it a point to go back and do some serious tasting!


Brewpub from celebrity chef (Rick Bayless). great beer, great food


Near westside or West Town, right by Grand Central, Goose Island Taproom, All Rise and On Tour. On Cinco de Mayo the place was absolutely packed. Must be doing something right. Pour your own concept with three breweries showcasing their beers along with a few guests. Wristband kind of thing if you are in to that. Burnt City is resurrected in time for Easter. Bold Dog Brews and Around the Bend


Few places where you can sit steps from the beach and get some food and a good drink. Not the best beer selection but you will find something you want to drink and the food is edible. Super nice staff. Open in the spring summer and fall meaning it it closed most of the year. Let's call it May thru September. Lots of times music in the evenings.

Larger facility than Lincoln Avenue with extensive menu and great beer. Address is for the front of the building but entrance is around the back. Big outdoor garden for the summer months (dog friendly)and comfy child friendly inside for all year round(not dog friendly). Right around the corner from Spiteful. A favorite brewery of mine.


Eclectic burritos with some of the best beer in Chicago. Super friendly staff who will guide you to the right beer. Bottle shop next door. Always worth the journey.
