A Full List of Chicago Breweries, Craft Beer Makers, Beer Bars, Restaurants & Bottle Shops throughout Chicagoland:
Our Chicago Brewery Map is here! We want to help you find the breweries, brewpubs, beer bars & bottle shops that make Chicagoland such a great beer destination.
Our Chicago Brewery Map covers the hundreds of places that brew craft beer, sell craft beer and properly pour beer. We do regularly review the list of available breweries and beermakers throughout Chicagoland. Considering how quickly the craft beer scene changes here, this is about as up to date as you can get (we hope). Don’t forget to sign up for our free emails to know exactly when things change.
What are we calling Chicagoland?
Good question. We’re kind of going by our geographic instinct, backed up by some boundaries. Our rough estimate of what we consider “Chicagoland” includes Cook County and the collar counties, plus Lake County in NWI. If it’s got an address in there, we want it to be listed here.
Looking for something specific? Just click the box in the upper left corner of the map to see all the available categories. We broke out production-only breweries, breweries with taprooms, as well as brewpubs, bottle shops and more into their individual categories.
Spot something missing? Email us! We’re happy to make changes if you see a spot that’s closed — or newly opened — without us knowing about it. It happens more often than you might want to think.

What Else Can You Tell Me About Chicago Breweries?
Well, we’ve been on the beer beat around Chicagoland for over a decade. In that time we’ve tried a lot of beers and written plenty of words about them. While you’re here, why not take a look at some of our past coverage of:
- Goose Island and their annual Bourbon County Stout release
- Half Acre Beer Co.
- Revolution Brewing
- Three Floyds and Dark Lord Day
- Metropolitan Brewing
- Lagunitas Brewing
- A variety of Vertical Tastings and Experiments with Cellared Beers
- Our coverage of the Great American Beer Festival through the years
Chances are good you’ve got something near you to drink — time to get to work! And yes, we try to keep this map as accurate as possible. That said, we recommend you double check things through Google, Facebook and Instagram. Hours, menus, addresses (yes even addresses) all change without warning. Just a heads up if you’re planning a visit to any of these many breweries.
There are many other great sites that have a brewery map available also, though we can’t vouch for their accuracy. Another great resource we use is the list of Illinois breweries on BeerAdvocate.
