Half Acre Beer Company is one of the best breweries and bars in Chicago and has produced more than 25 year-round and seasonal brews. It is at this brewery that famous beers like their year-round Half Acre Lager or their specialty Baumé, an American chocolate rye stout, are brewed. Customers can sample beers at their taproom and also purchase Half Acre brews and paraphernalia at the store. If you are interested in learning more about the brewing process, visit this brewery on a Saturday and participate in the guided tour. Acquaint yourself with their equipment, which includes a three-vessel 15bbl Century brewhouse, battle axe bomber filler and 19 fermentation vessels! They only take 60 people per tour on a first come, first serve basis, so head here early in the morning. Half Acre also frequently sponsors events and tastings of new brews across Chicago.
