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.

Attached to the Cobra Lounge. Lots of events including Bikes and Burlesque in the warmers months. Sponsor a three day motorcycle oriented fest each summer. In an area that includes several other breweries. Haven't tried the food but I have seen people eating it and they looked happy! Nice pub food menu.


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 decent lagers, saisons, IPAs and others. Food is very good with daily specials. Outdoor seating in the warmer months. Three great places in Pilsen. Try them all.

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!

Botanical Brewery with eclectic food. Seem to do a lot of collaborations especially with Collective Arts.
