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


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!


Liquor store in a strip mall with an unassuming look that carries one of the best selections of craft beers in Chicago and elsewhere. I am talking about a selection even the big guys cannot match. Worth a visit!

Nice space with food and beer, affiliated with Corridor


Beer, Cider and Food. Interesting mix of cider and beer cocktails.


Loads of taps with an ever changing menu. Food is edible but beer list is great. Lots of local beers with a good smattering of harder to find not so local ones. Lots of sports on teevees. Walking distance from downtown chicago. If you are in town for a convention or just want to go one place to check out Chicago's beer scene this could be a choice.

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.


Brewpub by Horse Thief on far south side of Chicago with good collection of beer and foods.


Pizza and Beer Brewpub and does well at both. (started by a member of Cheap Trick)


Brewpub with great food and one of Chicago's favorite spots.


Very good beer selection / OK food. Lots of youth in a large space. Good for before and after a cubs game as it is right down the street.
