If you find that the winds are blowing you in a certain direction in the Windy City, they might be pushing you to one of the many breweries in Chicago.
Indeed, the home of the White Sox and the Cubs is also where you will find some of the best pure drinking options around.
Since you might be a little tipsy, we have broken down some of the best choices and here’s our list of the Top 5 Breweries in Chicago
1. Piece Brewery and Pizza
(1927 W. North Ave.)
If you find yourself in the Bucktown/Wicker Park area, trying a slice and brew from the Piece Brewery is a must. The beer choices are endless and particularly recommended is the “Camel Toe” and the “Dark-n-Curvy Dunkelweizen.” While the names certainly leave a lot to be desired, we promise that these bevvies are worth at least a sip.
2. Atlas Brewing Company
(2747 N. Lincoln Ave.)
One of the primary features of Atlas is the taster sizers that it offers. They allow visitors to take a taste of what they want to drink before deciding. Atlas is primarily known for its spectacular service and its staff is particularly good at offering recommendations. Make sure to try the Andromeda Milk Stout which is particularly poignant.
(2323 N. Milwaukee Ave.)
Located relatively close to Piece, Revolution is known amongst Chitown locals as being the best place to grab a burger and a beer. Like Atlas, $2 tasters allow customers to get a sense of what they like before purchase. The Eugene Coffee Porter is simply incredible.
4. 5 Rabbit Brewery
(3304 N. Knox Ave., Chicago IL)
The only Latin-American owned microbrewery in the U.S. and one of the newest additions to Chicago.
5. Goose Island
(1800 N. Clybourn Ave., Chicago IL)
Known as being one of the one of the oldest Chicago breweries in Illinois, the selection at Goose Island is unparalleled.
