Half Acre Beer CompanyNorth Center | Website
Half Acre's beers, including Half Acre lager, Over Ale and Daisy Cutter, are brewed here in this 9,000-square-foot facility. A North Center retail store floored with reclaimed wood from a Wisconsin barn stocks Half Acre's brews in bottles (as of late April, it'll be cans instead), as well as six packs from other craft breweries in Chicago (Metropolitan, Goose Island) and the Midwest (Great Lakes, Founders, Three Floyds). A half-dozen draft lines built right into the wall serve up one-ounce samples as well as 64-ounce growlers to take home. Call for details about tours.
