Visited Half Acre numerous times in the past to try non-publicly released offerings of their craft. This trip was the first since they established their food menu and wasn't let down. Menu isn't large as its captured on essentially a bifold pamphlet but captures all...More

If you've had Half Acre's beer before then it is worth a visit and if you haven't it's a great place to try it for the first time. Food selection isn't super expensive but everything is great.

I like beer, and I go to beer places. Breweries, bars, restaurants, and any additional locations that may fall into that bracket. We hit a few spots in Chicago, specifically to check out beer. A Binny's, Eataly, Lagunitas, and Myths & Legends Brewing. Out of...More

Very down to earth, but informative explanation about the history of Half Acre was provided. Clear and concise description of the brewing process was also presented. They also gave us a pint glass souvenir and three pints of their beer to sample. I liked that...More

Great beer and the best beer tour I've ever been on! You have to show 45-60 minutes early to be guaranteed a spot on the Saturday tour, but it's well worth it. For $10 you get a glass, 3 full pints, and, on our tour...More
