Metropolitan Brewery on the North side is crafting German Lagers with Chicago style. Learn about them here, then check ’em out in Andersonville or at your local bar.
The 2nd in our Chicago Brewery series, Three Floyds is grabbing hold of the local beer scene. And maybe even a reason to head to Indiana.
You might say Goose Island has made Chicago fit for these other small time bottlers; sowing the seeds of good taste for fellow breweries to graze. I, for one, salute that big fat bird. It’s recognized products like theirs that compose the fabric of Chicago’s image and formulate the lingering consistency of my Chicago pride.

If the craft breweries of Chicagoland are a family of misfit siblings then Two Brothers Brewery strikes me as the middle child; pensive and often overlooked but as talented as any of the others.
