Our Craft Beer Map is here to help you find the breweries, brewpubs, beer bars, tap rooms and bottle shops that make the Chicago area the beer destination that it is.

Behold, the GuysDrinkingBeer Chicagoland Craft Beer Map,* featuring a multitude places that brew beer, sell beer, package beer and pour beer.** Considering the ever-changing face of Chicago’s craft beer scene, this is about as up to date as you can get (we hope). We opted to keep this Chicagoland-centric to begin, but if we’re feeling energetic someday, maybe we’ll grow this out to the full Midwest. Who knows. No promises.

Between all the different places on the map (click on the box to see all the available types of map points), Chicago is certainly a busy place when it comes to brewing. Even though some of these places are currently contracting, itinerant or other, we wanted to have them represented as well, so that’s why those “?”s are floating around in Lake Michigan.

Want to know more about most of these breweries? You should subscribe to our emails and buy Karl’s book!

Note: If you represent one of these locations and want a physical address added or your contractor identified, let us know and we’re happy to update.

Second note: Things in Chicago move pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around, you may miss something. Also, things at all of these breweries and brewpubs and shops may have changed, so it’s always a good idea to doublecheck hours and availability before any visit.

Chances are good you’ve got something near you to drink. Get to work. Spot something missing? Email us!

*As opposed to the many, many other sites that have beer maps available also. We just wanted our own.

**We try to keep this map as accurate as possible, but you should always remember to doublecheck everything — address, hours, etc. — if you’re planning a visit.
