The tap room is clean and modern and has a really great neighborhood feel to it. The bartenders were very friendly and chatting about beer with us for nearly the entire time we spent at the bar. About seven wooden tables scattered around with one real long community table running along the brick wall. To borrow a tried old New England Saying, this bar feels like after a few visits… “Everybody will know your name.” And that’s what I really dig about it! Everything offered on draft was available in a 4 oz. taster for a real reasonable price. If I’m ever back in Chicago I will make it a point to revisit and stay longer. Cool place for sure.

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.

We attended the tour at half acre and really enjoyed it. Much different than other tours in that you don't do much walking around, but rather it's focused on learning about the brewery, etc and sampling the beers. The guide was excellent and very entertaining... Made it worthwhile. Beer was very good and for 10$ you get three pints and a glass. Well done half acre ... Keep it up

Low key tap room wooden tables and a decent selection on tap. Bartender was great and the beer was pretty good too. Spun some great tunes while I enjoyed my sampler.

Small taproom by the side of the brewery. 10 drafts of their own beer and available in any size. Service was fast and friendly and food could be taken in from outside as they didn’t have their own facilities.

A small half brick half wood tap room. There were ten Half Acre beers on tap when I came and no guests as far as I could see. Their own beers were pretty decent though. I recommend this place highly. The wifi worked flawlessly and they allow you to bring in your own food too.

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!

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.

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!

Visited on my first trip to Chicago with a guy named Joe1510.

The people working this place were great and they had all the Daisy Cutter you could handle for about $8/4pack. They didnt offer tasters of anything but who cares, just get a case of Daisy Cutter and drink that for a week or two. What I did find odd was the check out counters; I guess they are prepared for large releases.

Not much to say about this place really. Decent neighborhood, great beer, nice people. Now that they’re serving beer I’ll have to stop in again.
