Maybe (maybe) my favorite brewery and taproom combination of all time. The beers are certainly of a kind, more on the hop trail than the malt road, but there's very few beers they make that I cannot drink with pleasure. Daisy cutter was the conversion point, but Space IPA is my end point. If they have Golden Tuna, Vallejo, Tundra, or Big Hugs on tap, try those too. Great place, definitely "men with beards" country but the 20-somethings are tolerant of us older-timers, too. (477 characters)

Such a cool spot! Super friendly and knowledgeable staff with a great atmosphere. Sat at the bar, easy going vibe even when things got a little busy. Bartender suggested ordering Lou Malnati's from down the street and having it delivered (best deep dish in Chicago) so that was great. Lots of different beers available, some bottles to go....overall, the coolest brewery in Chicago imo. (386 characters)

Great place to go and try everything they are offering. Cool staff, cool merchandise, and cheap growlers. Love going on a Saturday evening, getting a growler and cracking it open on football Sunday. Oh and they give you a free growler for every ten you buy, or something like that.

Can't beat fresh daisy cutter (313 characters)

Chicago has A LOT of great breweries and beer bars. However, in addition to having fantastic beer, what really sets Half Acre apart from the other is its staff and customer service mentality. Great beers, great people. (218 characters)

Place was packed at 6 on a Tuesday. Came here as part of a beer vacation to Chicago. Best stop of the trip by far. Awesome and knowledgeable bartenders. Awesome selection. Every beer I had was impressive. They deserve all the accolades and ratings they get on BA (262 characters)

Such a kickass place. Taproom is so cool. Great selection of beers on draught. I also like how the retail space and tasting room are separate, it really expedites things. (170 characters)
