This taproom is a MUST visit. Half Acre has been my favorite Chicagoland brewery for quite a while. The people are really great. The new taproom is BEAUTIFUL. They always have a lot of special things in the taproom, and they have Firken Fridays! Visit this brewery if you visit Chicago.

This is a review of the Brewery store I have not had the pleasure of the brewpub as of yet a review of that to follow.

It may intimidate the uninitiated but please feel free to come in and taste and hopefully buy some of the best beers being brewed in Chicago. A very eclectic and knowledgeable staff will help guide you to the correct beer for you. Stock up on some growlers and get them refilled on Tuesdays for $2off each growler, I'm sure most people coming in if they have heard or drank anything from Half Acre it would be the Daisy Cutter which is an excellent brew but just the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to beer selection here, if they have Double Daisy Cutter on draft make sure to buy as much as you can carry. Great place, great service, great beer, shitty parking. (park at Jewel and walk) also Bad Apple bar at least used to serve a lot of Half Acre beers(this was before the brewpub) and have an amazing Poutine (actually the only poutine ive had but still)
