  • Flossmoor Station Restaurant & Brewery
    While most people saw a worn-out and rickety building when they looked at the old Flossmoor Train Station, Dean and Carol Armstrong saw potential. The duo had often dreamed of opening a brewery of their own and thought the Flossmoor building—with it's rich history, rustic wood fixtures, and lofty ceilings—could be the perfect venue. After months of scheming, toiling, and repair work, Dean and Carolyn opened the doors to Flossmoor Station Restaurant, inviting guests to bask beneath the sun on the lush outdoor patio, sample their handcrafted beers, and peruse their menu of homemade dishes. Today, Flossmoor Station has become a bustling gathering place, where locals and tourists alike clink glasses as passing Metra trains toot their horns in the distance. In the kitchen, chefs whip up entrees infused with beer from the brewery—such as the Station Master Wheat Ale-battered fish and chips, a dish that was lauded by reporters on Chicago's Best. Meanwhile, in the upstairs fermentation vats, skilled brew-masters fold pale malts and specialty grains into award-winning wheat beers, brown ales, and IPAs—including the refreshing Zephyr Golden Ale and the aromatic Gandy Dancer Honey Ale.

  • Bulldog Brewery
    Bulldog Brewery was born out of steelworker Kevin Clark's home brewing hobby. But founding his own brewery didn't mean Kevin was ready to quit his day job. And neither have co-owners, Bob Fausto and Jeff Kochis, a steelworker and a second-generation firefighter respectively. The hard work required of having two jobs is in keeping with the brewery's mission: to celebrate small town America and the blue collar workers who live there. One of the ways they achieve this goal is by providing a place for customers to relax after a hard day's work, whether it's with a grilled panini sandwich or a pint of flavorful lager, stout, or IPA. Their beer also celebrates the working man. The 1890 Stout, for instance, commemorates the year that oil refineries came to Whiting. Its dark, crude-like color conceals notes of vanilla bean and cherry, and it's best consumed while wearing an oil can jauntily perched upon your head.

  • Crown Brewing
    Crown Brewing’s statement light fixture isn’t like traditional chandeliers hung with crystals—instead, the amber light that filters down to the floor shines through an array of empty beer bottles. There are plenty of full bottles and pints to be found, however, as the brewery's boasts 12 varieties of brew, including award-winning beers such as the blueberry and Special Forces IPA, which Chicago magazine named one of the city's 36 best local craft beers. From the cozy bar, patrons get a view of the brewery itself, where brewmaster Steve Mazylewski is hard at work crafting batches of customer favorites and testing out his new recipes. Weekly specials include stein nights, discounted growler refills, and half-price pints can be enjoyed inside or on Crown Brewing's outdoor patio.

  • Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant
    Cooper’s Hawk Naturally, the chefs at Cooper’s Hawk have a sharp eye when it comes to wine pairings. Each of the restaurant’s contemporary dishes is crafted with a particular wine in mind, which makes plenty of sense given the fact that there’s a winery located just next door. Surrounded by oaken barrels and racks lined with glistening bottles, diners may be forgiven for thinking that they made a wrong turn and ended up in the winery itself. After your meal, see the real thing in the Napa–style tasting room, where you can sample up to eight different wines. The selection includes something for everyone, including graceful blush wines and cabernets whose flavors unfold like a novel scribbled on the wings of an origami crane.

  • Piece Brewery & Pizzeria
    In a spacious and bustling loft space, Piece's doughsmiths twirl crispy New Haven–style thin-crust pizzas to pair with house-crafted microbrews. A triad of pizza bases—red, white, and mozzarella-free plain—balance premium ingredients better than Italy's top runway models, with toppings that include mashed potatoes, clams, and ricotta cheese. Led by brewmaster Jonathan Cutler, Piece concocts award-winning beers, such as the rye-based Worryin Ale or the Top Heavy Hefeweizen, in gleaming silver vats next door to the dining room. Parties can intersperse crispy bites with raucous cheers as they watch one of 11 46-inch plasma TVs, which punctuate the walls with the soft glow of sports games or documentaries about uranium. Amateur vocal cords strut their stuff during standard karaoke on Thursday nights, as well as live-band karaoke on Saturday nights.

  • Goose Island (Wrigleyville, Clybourn Brewpubs)
    If you've ever raised a glass of Belgian-style Sofie or gotten lost in the oaky, chocolatey flavors of Bourbon County Stout, you may think that you know Goose Island's beers. But you haven't tasted the whole story unless you've visited one of Goose Island's two Chicago brewpubs. That's because the brewpubs?both of which are independently owned by Goose Island founder John Hall, despite Anheuser-Busch's 2011 acquisition of the larger company?specialize in small-batch beers that showcase the creativity and prowess of its brewers. Most of these beers are produced only once and can't be found in any beer store, corner shop, or on your roommate's side of the refrigerator. When guests visit the pubs, they have the chance to sip artful ales, imperial stouts, and IPAs that might never again be tasted once the keg runs dry. Brewmaster Nicholas Barron talked to us about the creative brews he's currently working on and what to expect during a tour of the brewpub. On the Exclusive Brews You'll Taste: "We?re able to create new batches very frequently?we have at least one new beer a week, if not two. We do a lot of small batches, one-off beers, exploring different flavors?99% of everything we make here is just for the pub [not the mass market]." On His Summery Farmers' Market Beers: "Once a week, we go to Green City Market, buy fresh local produce, and incorporate that into our new beers. . . you can follow how things ripen as the season goes on. We just did a strawberry imperial wheatwine. Next week, a hopfenweizen with sweet basil, mint and lemon balm." On the Double Life of the Brewpub's Tour Guides Typically, tour groups stand on the brewery platform so they can get a view of the brewpub's inner workings. The tour guides also provide a glimpse behind-the-scenes. "A lot of our tour guides are brewers and are excited about sharing. Bring questions.?
