Chicago Craft Beer

The craft beer and even craftier cocktail scene in Chicago is exploding. From hip microbreweries to trendy taverns, everyone is taking notice of Chicago perfecting the drinking game. But don’t take our word for it. GQ Magazine recently named Chicago the “Greatest Drinking City in America” and The New York Times even paid us a visit to taste the best of our Wood and Barrel-Aged Beer.

From downtown to its diverse neighborhoods, Chicago offers booze buffs a one-of-a-kind experience. Take a tour through some of Chicago’s deeply rooted historic pubs with History on Tap or sip on a cocktail made by the World’s Best Bartender, Charles Joly.

Below, check out a rundown of the city's top breweries with our Hops & Barley Itinerary, and see which craft beers are all the rage in our What's On Tap article, as well as a host of other features on our incomparable beer scene.

So if all things craft beer and breweries are your jam, get ready because Chicago is the place for you!
