18th Street Brewery  David Honorable Mention Full menu WiFi available Children friendly Brewpub. New entry in the Guide in 2020 Dog friendly Bottle shop

Just a short ride outside of Chicago in NW Indiana is 18th Street Brewery. Super talented brewers with a kitchen to match. Close to 50 breweries in Chicago proper but if you choose just outside the number almost triples. Next door is their distillery. I believe Sour Note Brewing, also in Hammond Indiana is related to 18 St. Make the trip, you'll not be disappointed. Can also combine with a stop at Three Floyds in Munster, Indiana. Fairly close by.


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.


Alulu Brewery and Pub  David Honorable Mention Full menu WiFi available Brewpub. Dog friendly Bottle shop Growler fills available On the To Do List

One of the best breweries to visit during the pandemic(and summer). They have engineered outdoor drinking and eating to adapt to Chicago winters. Enormous, expansive outdoor seating area, reasonable safe protocol, and a large menu of beer and food. As they share the area with a sushi restaurant, the food choices double. Make the trip, it's well worth it. Small two storied brewpub in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago. They make their beer onsite on the second floor and for a small operation they make some great lagers, saisons, IPAs and others. Food is very good with daily specials. As with many breweries, time has made Alulu a great brewery as they have gotten beer brewing down to an art.

Bottle shop with a small pub built in. Very good selection. Dog and child friendly


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.

Half Acre Beer Co - Balmoral  David Honorable Mention Full menu WiFi available Children friendly Closed Monday Brewpub. Dog friendly Bottle shop Growler fills available On the To Do List

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.
