One of Chicago’s hippest areas is also overflowing with beer options. This stretch of Milwaukee — which runs through Wicker Park and Logan Square — is home to music venues, nightlife, boutiques, trendy restaurants, and lots of cool craft breweries that embrace the eclectic vibe of the neighborhood.

Stop 1: Piece Brewery & Pizzeria

First, a long-time favorite. Piece Brewery & Pizzeria, which claims the title of most award-winning brewpub in Chicago, has been making New Haven-style pizza since they opened in 2001. They’ve also been brewing lots of beer — everything from German-style Kolsch to barley wine to American IPAs. 1927 W. North Ave.

Stop 2: Revolution Brewing Brewpub

The largest independent brewery in the state, Revolution Brewing‘s Logan Square brewpub is a popular stand-by on the Milwaukee Corridor nightlife circuit. Grab a spot at the bar, where you can try one-off brews that aren’t available anywhere else. Oh, and the food is great too. 2323 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Stop 3: Hopewell Brewing CompanyHopewell Brewing

The taproom at Hopewell Brewing is bright, modern, and open, which happens to perfectly describe their beers too. This small brewery is always trying something new, so expect some classics and some experimental brews. They brew small-batch beers every season, including many that you can only taste on their taproom. It’s also in a prime location near the heart of Logan Square, so leave time to explore the area’s many bars, restaurants, and music venues. 2760 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Stop 4: Bungalow by Middle Brow

This funky space matches the funky brews. A few blocks off Milwaukee, Middle Brow’s brewpub is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Stop by in the morning for a brewers’ breakfast — fancy toast, coffee, and (of course) beer — or the rest of the day for thin-crust pizzas. The beer menu is focused on fermentation and experimenting with yeast, with hop-forward, dark, sour, and funky styles. 2840 W. Armitage Ave.

Stop 5: Solemn Oath

Just down the street from Middle Brow, Solemn Oath Brewery‘s Still Life taproom is a relaxed neighborhood hangout that just so happens to have excellent beer. On any given day, you’ll find locals enjoying Solemn Oath’s housemade beer and seltzers while playing pool or hanging out with their pup (the taproom is dog-friendly to boot). Still Life also has a regular schedule of culinary pop-ups and collaborations with local restaurants, food trucks, and more.

Stop 6: Life on Marz Community Club

End your craft beer tour at this unique taproom that’s home to Marz Community Brewing Company. This locally born brewery has become known for its flagship wheat ale, Jungle Boogie, as well as its sour series and more exotic concoctions. Their eclectic Logan Square taproom is an outpost for cultural programs, events, activities — and excellent beer, of course. Along with Marz brews, you can sample their line of CBD seltzers, nitro coffee, kombucha, and locally made snacks. 1950 N. Western Ave.
