6/16/18: Have picked up bottles from the adjacent store in the past, sat down to have a 20 ounce Beer Hates Astronauts. Small room, I sat at the bar, tables are spread in the tight room. Nice crowd for early Saturday evening. Excellent service despite the crowd, about a dozen draft offerings available in a sample and also in a small or large beer size. Very good selections, beer reasonably priced. Overall nice taproom and looking forward to a few more pours down the road.

Nice enough place, decently sized, with good ambiance. Good enough tap list, and a fair amount of stuff to go. Staff was friendly.

Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon as a pit stop during our german pub crawl. Medium sized taproom. Sampler flights available. Around 12-16 beers on tap when we visited. The five beers I tried were all good quality. Overall, a really nice stop - good quality beer, nice atmosphere, nice location. If we weren't hellbent on keeping our german pub crawl going, I would have liked to have stayed here for a couple hours. Definitely worth a stop.

We ordered some food from the menu, this may be a new feature- pretty good food considering this. We went on a busy Sunday after the Cubs game, so it was a full house, the service was a bit busy. But the beers were solid and the bartender was helpful with beer selections. Worth a visit

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.
