taproom is tiny, just enough room for 20 people to stand (no seating) but still a good place (and often the only place) to sample some of half acreís stuff. 5 or 6 taps and a single cooler with some half acre 22s and some guests as well (some DFH and FFF). growlers are 64oz mason jars which they heat seal, $14 new with $12 fills. they also give you a punch card so the 11th growler is free.

Thought this place was a great visit. Nice looking tap room with a bunch of tables and a small bar as well. Definitely had a nice selection of beers at reasonable prices ($3-4 for 8 oz pours, $5-6 for 16oz pours, and $6-7 for 21oz pours). Great prices as far as Iím concerned. Had some cans available as well for on-site consumption. Store next door had stuff for sale as well, though I didnít get to check it out. Fairly busy for a Wednesday night, but we were able to grab a table. Bartenders were both really good, never took us more than a minute to order a brew. Great spot. I could see bring food in here an chilling for a while.

My favorite taproom stop in Chicago. Lots of beers on tap, busy but we got a table. Service was great. Tons of excellent hoppy stuff on tap. Different size pours which was nice for sampling. Really nice place, retail side was not open. Excellent beer!

Aw Hell Yeah, this is the spot. All they have is Half Acre Beers on tap, so if you have a problem wit that, then thatís your problem. Their prices are incredibly affordable, no flights but wit 8oz pours @ $3, WTF!!! Have all ten taps at an 8oz pour then hit up an Uber MoFo

Really cool tasting room with 6-8 great hoppy beers on draft. Bench seating with bar service, and multiple sized pours available. Average prices and great beers.

Timber ceilings with skylights, driftwood (?) side paneling, weirdo paintings. This is a cool space that channels fun and creativity at the same time. Fast, effective service. Eight beers on, all of quite high quality and available in three different sizes. Busy place, obviously, but I would spend a lot of time here outside of peak hours if I lived in the neighborhood.

This is a small tap room but did not need to be bigger, Nice dťcor and I really liked my visit. Great tour and highly recommend if your anywhere near it. Donít let my score scare you its probably low.

Had a nice time drinking a couple pints here on a Sunday morning. It is just a small tap room attached to the brewery, no food and nothing fancy. Itís clean, well lit and the staff is friendly. There are ten or so Half Acre beers on draft which includes most of what they can and then also a few of their draft only brews. Everything was available as single samples and as half pints, which is nice. I might complain thereís no guest taps but, really, I am visiting Half Acre to drink Half Acre so no big deal. The store next door offers growler (and half growler) fills and samples as well. This is a popular and small spot so try to come at an off time to avoid lines and crowds.

A really nice taproom. It was packed when I was there.. But I stood beside the íbouncerí and had a beer with him. You can get good delivered to the taproom and they had 8 of their beers on tap including a few seasonals. Great spot.

What a highlight from a boys beer trip. Beer is 1st class. Loved the gin barrel aged Pilsner especially. Food was available to order from surrounding restaurants - great idea. Very cool merch also

This place was fucking amazing. Very small for a brew pub but the right size given the comfort level. Great range of beers, awesome service and the ability to buy local take away and eat it in the bar. Nice feel about this place. Better than goose island
