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. Bad apple is across the street. Fountainhead is 0.3 miles away. Make a day out of it!

Stopped in briefly to sample some beers and get some beer to go. I love the design of this place. so cool and hip looking, beers on tap were all good and the staff really took their time to chat with us. Prices were very fair. they gave me a sticker which was listed as a 50 cent cost.

This was may favorite brewery on my latest trip to Chicago. I had some of their beer around town before visiting the taproom and it got my expectations high. Half Acre delivered. The tasting room is on the smaller side, but not tiny. I’d say during peak hours it gets nuts in here though. There is some really cool artwork on the walls. I like the beer drinking bear and trouble on the farm paintings. The beer is absolutely stellar. This is an example of well-executed, painstakingly created beer. Every detail is given attention from appearance to mouthfeel. Next to the taproom is a large storefront selling to go beer and schwag.

It doesn’t get any fresher than here. Gets a bit crowded sometimes, but worth the trip.

Tasted all available beers with a detailed explanation of the nuances of them. Lots of locals dropped by for growlers.

Update: Now the actual tap room is open. They have 10 taps (I feel like they should have added more) that run the gamut. Will be tap room only beers coming along. Really great space, great prices and great staff. Pretty awesome stuff. Not sure I understand the ragging of the other reviews. It’s a store front for the brewery. If the shop is open, they pour growler fills and sell packaged beer of their own and other small breweries, as well as swag. Service is decent and the brewery is always open in the back if the store is. Nice vibe and good for the scene.

This is a brewery with a storefront to sell growlers and merch... To the tourists with false expectations, Half Acre is one of the most creative brewing operations in the city. Try supporting places that are really doing something for the local craft beer scene. "Almost-cocky" what does that even mean? Staff are laid-back and super friendly. Ive been going here since they opened, and its a solid place to get an ever-rotating selection of fresh craft beers in growler form, some are brewery-exclusive. Their bottle/can selection rotates weekly, and is different everytime I go. If youre looking for a bar, there are plenty of walkable options: Bad Apple, Fountainhead, Tiny Lounge, etc.

I thought this was a pretty sweet place. New feel, but at the same time a comfortable feel. I sat at the bar and the service was great. They offer samples of everything. The selection was good, I guess the downside would be only 10 offerings. Wish they had food, but not a deal breaker for me.

Absolutely cool tap room next to brewery. Had four or five beers not bottled or canned (to my knowledge) on tap. One 22 ounce bottle available in both taproom and brewery (no variety there). Very nice looking inside. Took the train from River North/Loop area and arrived a few blocks away. Friendly service. At 1pm on a weekday, plenty of room to sit with the kids and have a few beers. I want to go back!
