If you like beer, and you must like beer if you are even considering going here, then I highly recommend Half Acre. Chicago has a lot of good options for craft beer, but Half Acre is really special. Small batches, great brews, especially IPA's...such a fun way to spend a day at this tap room. The beer is brewed by a team clearly passionate about their brews and having fun while doing it. We sampled all of the beers on tap during our recent trip to Chicago. It was awesome to head out of the city and experience a true, local, neighborhood establishment. We met wonderful people while there - the tables are community tables and board games are offered to play as you sip away. The neighborhood is really cute, a quieter part of Chicago, but worth heading out of the main drag in Chicago to experience a true gem. Talk to the people at the tap room and store next door - they know their stuff, they love it and you will learn so much about beer when you are there! Further, they are all local to Chicago now, so they have great recommendations for other places to enjoy while in town. I picked up some hot sauces they sell at their shop & tried them when I got home - delicious! They don't make the hot sauce, but they sell some great little gifts and items in addition to beer which highlights their focus on community. Lots of respect for these talented brewers - head out to their tap room - you will not be disappointed! They don't serve food, but you can bring sandwiches in, which we saw some people doing & looked fun! it gets busy here, as anyone in the know understands what a gem this tap room is, but as I said, talk with those around you & meet new people & have fun!

If you are a lover of beer this place is a must. If you love your IPAs then Daisy Cutter is for you. Even better if you are able to grab some Double Daisy Cutter when it is available. They rotate their stock and what is on tap based on their small batch brews. Always something for everyone.
Great group of folks work here. Worth a trip on L from downtown. TheTap Room is a great addition to this local establishment.
