Visited in early July 2015. Big Garage. 8 oz pour is the smallest, but they’re mostly $3 each so leaving half isn’t a big deal. No food so they encourage you to bring in from any of the many local places, and even have a list of local food places within the immediate proximity. Beers are good, service staff is friendly. Worth a quick visit.

I liked this brewery a lot. It was a bit small and incredibly packed, but the beers were solid and the service was admirable considering the number of people.

A slow Tuesday and friendly staff and friendly customers. Best thing- some of the tastiest fresh beers. Walked into the taproom first and thought the brewery was a bit small. Was pointed in the right direction. Worth going back and I hope I do soon.

A Saturday evening and the area around the Half Acre taproom was bustling. I walked in and I was in a small room with shirts, merchandise, taps and a fridge. People were having small samples of the beers and filling their growlers. I was a bit confused... is this all they have here? 14 beers on tap. I had a small sample of Juice Man. Really tasty. I bought couple of bombers and went back to my car. I told my wife that I couldn’t have a beer there. She asked what’s the restaurant looking place next to it is? Well, there it was, the taproom. How stupid was I? Maybe next time then...

Taproom within the brewery. Good selection of there own beers on tap & in cans. No guests. Very busy place. High quality beers. Prices not too bad. Even though there are lots of other places to go in Chicago on a short visit this is one to go back to for the quality of the beer.

A really nice taproom with a good feel to the place although it is almost always packed. Bartenders are friendly and know the beers well. The taps seem to rotate pretty regularly. Prices are on the better end for Chicago. One of the better Chicago taprooms.

Ive been here probably over a dozen times. You get what you get coming here, all of the beers have a similiar character and they hardly ever release anything stylewise aside from the dozen or so styles they specialize in. Which is good but makes it a niche place. I like Half Acre beers so its worth going to to see the new iteration of each beer. Its relatively cheap, pretty packed usually, i actually have not been there since they have served food. Service is always great.

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

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.
