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.


Sadly the original home of Half Acre Brewery has closed down after 13 years and all the operations have be moved to the Balmoral facility a few miles north. The good news is that Hop Butcher Brewery will be taking over the space and opening their first brick and mortar facility.

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.


New location! Upscale brewpub with unique brews and food to pair with them. Worth the visit. Expanded and upscale food menu. Do not fail to order the chocolate cake. Moved from Pilsen to the old Baderbrau building in the way south loop, china town, mccormick place area. into Culinary Brewing: Culinary brewing rests on three principles: Sourcing the highest quality ingredients. Understanding how best to handle those ingredients to showcase flavors and aromatics. Knowing when during the brewing process to incorporate these ingredients


Neither brewpub or taproom a bottle shop with some of Chicago's best brews, both their own and others.


Taproom and event space. For me a bigger and better version of their Milwaukee Avenue brewpub. Big space with a lot of offerings on tap and it's byof. Order in or bring it in. Inside bicycle parking is a plus!

Formerly Urban Renewal Brewery is a growing entity that produces some very tasty brews. Over the summer of 2020 they had two small tables set out for onsite tasting. Now they have taken over Koval Distillery's space and opened a full Brewpub. Great beers and great people! Check it out!


Organic and Creative Brewpub out of the way but worth the effort. Pasties and pizzas, great beer with best can designs in the city -- think cats…..
