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.

Nice small spot with a handful of taps and a nitro line. All the beer was delicious! Bar area is clean and trendy with some cool decorations. Somewhat limited seating. Brewing area not visible from bar, but you can peak in if the garage door is open. Retail store with tasting connected. Very close to Wrigley Field.

Love HABC’s beers. The the tap room is pretty standard. They’ve just opened a kitchen, but I haven’t checked that part out yet. Long table seating dominates the place, bit on the noisy side but friendly. Worth stopping in for a pint if you’re up around North Center.

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 I’m concerned. Had some cans available as well for on-site consumption. Store next door had stuff for sale as well, though I didn’t 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 that’s 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 décor and I really liked my visit. Great tour and highly recommend if your anywhere near it. Don’t let my score scare you its probably low.
