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.
One of the best breweries to visit during the pandemic(and summer). 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.
Michelin Starred Restaurant and unusual but excellent brewery
Friendly neighborhood brewery on what they call Chicago's Malt Row. 100m from Dovetail Brewery and many others in the vicinity. Bring the dog, lunch and/or friends.....Lots of seating..
Bottle shop with a small pub built in. Very good selection. Dog and child friendly
Large rooftop deck makes this an option in these times. I have read that a brewer from Three Floyds has taken over the responsibilities. Will report back. 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!
German themed brewery in what is known as Malt Row. Steps from Begyle Brewery, both with different focuses makes the trip to one better when you also visit the other. A super short walk from Brown Line stop on Irving Park. Close by Jerry's Lincoln Square, Bad Apple and Half Acre Lincoln Avenue.
Nice space with food and beer, affiliated with Corridor
Dog and kid friendly taproom, byof and they sell their own beer to go in bottles, cans, and growlers.
Botanical Brewery with eclectic food. Seem to do a lot of collaborations especially with Collective Arts. Really good beer and in a neighborhood loaded with restaurants, shops and other places to get a drink. Across the street from Alcala's one of the best western shops you will find that is not in the west. Want boots and beer.?
1st brewpub in Chicago now big beer but still good.
Taproom at the production brewery with lots of space and tours. In the same sphere, walking and shouting distance are Great Central Beer, Finch's(production only), On Tour, and All Rise. Industrial area.
CHICAGO'S FIRST CRAFT-DEDICATED CONTRACT BREWERY Looks like a small, stylish German beer hall. They have 4 of their own brews, German style and a dozen client beers.
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.
Brewpub off the beaten path but worth the ride
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!
Taproom/Gallery/Event Space. Great beer no IPA's
Brewpub with creative brews and a great space well worth the extra effort to visit. Lots and lots of creative beers with an emphasis on combining interesting ingredients. In the vicinity of White Sox Park in the Bridgeport neighborhood. Good light menu as well. In the process of opening a Bucktown location.
Taproom with really nice space, specializing in German style beers.
Taproom with a variety of their own brewed on premises beers. Near McCormick Place Convention Center. Bring your own food.
Taproom and event space with a good collection of brews
Since Pilot Project has opened they have upped their game considerably. Great and unique brews, successfully have dealt with the pandemic so far, and retained a great staff. Support local beers and make sure Pilot Project is on your list. Can't make it? Find their brands in stores. Pilot Project, Brewer's Kitchen, Dutchbag Brew Co., Lunas Bay, plus collabs and more.

Taproom with great beers and around the corner from Half Acre. Always worth the trip. Not so sure how to find their tap list but I will.
Brewing facility with a very tiny 2 table garden out front. Will report back on my impressions of the beer.
