CHICAGO BREWERIES & CRAFT BEER

The craft beer scene in Chicago is exploding, with over 60 craft breweries and counting. With so many hip microbreweries and trendy taverns, everyone is taking notice of Chicago's ever-evolving drinking game.

But don’t take our word for it. GQ Magazine named Chicago the “Greatest Drinking City in America” and The New York Times even paid us a visit to taste the best of the best at the Festival of Wood and Barrel-Aged Beer — aka FoBAB. 

From downtown and beyond, Chicago offers beer buffs a one-of-a-kind experience. Take a tour through some of Chicago’s deeply rooted historic pubs with History on Tap, sip on locally crafted brews at our Incredible Taproomslearn all about seasonal creations at not-to-be-missed Chicago Craft Breweries, and check out a year-long schedule of Chicago Beer Festivals & Events.
