About the brewery

October of 2008 was when we began our build-out, and by February of 2009, after countless hours of hard work, community approvals, zoning changes, moratorium lifts, permitting and inspections, we found ourselves with the exact scenario we had hoped to create: a production brewery & store, located smack-dab in the middle of one of Chicago’s great neighborhoods, where beer could be brewed, packaged, and taken into the world either by the truckload or by the growler fill.

Since then, we’ve come a long way and have had the chance to expand our skills and grow our brewing company. On August 10, 2011 we purchased our building and cemented our place in the mix of it all. At Half Acre Beer Company, we brew beers we want to see made, enjoy ourselves as much as possible, and encourage the interesting experiences this ride has to offer.
