We’ve been brewing craft beers in Andersonville since 2009, making us the oldest operating “nano-brewery” in Chicago (basically, that’s just a fancy term for a really small brewery).
What started as a hobby in the corner of a sports bar has turned into a 200+ barrels/year (400 kegs) operation, with as many as eight of our brews on tap at any given time. So whether you are in the mood for a golden ale (like our Blonde Bombshell), something hop-heavy (try our rotating IPA), or a barrel-aged or sour stout… we have something to satisfy all tastes.
In addition to the beers we brew on site, we also offer more than 40 other beers and ciders in bottle and draft, with a primary focus on local Midwest brews. Our food menu comes from Hamburger Mary’s Dining Room next door, and has a wide variety of gourmet burgers, salads, sandwiches, entrees, appetizers and desserts… many of which contain beer ingredients from our brewing process (like our Bootlegger-BBQ sauce, and the fresh-cut Poutine fries with beer-gravy!)
Andersonville Brewing is also the neighborhood’s premier sports bar. No matter what the season, we’ll have the big game on… NCAA and NFL football, March Madness, Blackhawks, MLB, NBA… even college wrestling! Though there’s a special focus on the home teams, Auburn Football (War Eagle!) and Big10 basketball, we’ll always have the “big game” on and try to accommodate special requests.
