Half Acre has been a local favorite since they started brewing on Chicago’s North side in 2009. Head over to their taproom to try out their seasonal offerings or skip the samples and go straight for the Daisy Cutter Pale Ale. By far our favorite, Daisy Cutter is lush, dank, and a definite must-try for any Pale Ale lover. Plus, you can get it delivered any time!

Metropolitan Brewing got their start in the Ravenswood neighborhood on the North side of Chicago in 2009. With German style lagers that will leave you thirsty for more, we can’t get enough of Metropolitan Brewing!
Although there’s ample flavors to choose from, our favorite Metropolitan Brew is their Flywheel Pilsner Bier. A beautiful balance of hops and malt, get it delivered now!

We couldn’t talk about our favorite breweries from Chicago without giving Goose Island a shout-out. The craft beer pioneers over at Goose Island have created a delicious menu of seasonal and year-round beers that have found their way into fridge again and again.
We recommend trying their urban wheat ale, 312 (named for the local area code) for a true taste of Chicago.
