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

Behold, our 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).

Looking for something specific? Just click the box in the upper left corner of the map to see all the available types of map points. We broke out Breweries with Taprooms, brewpubs, bottle shops and more into their individual categories.

Want to know more about these breweries? Then you should subscribe to our emails and buy Karl’s book!

Finally, what are those “?”s floating in the middle of Lake Michigan? Well, many breweries and beer brands are currently contracting, itinerant or other, and we wanted to have them represented too. You’ll find breweries that don’t have a home location, or brew out of multiple locations there. Other contract and alt-prop breweries may have their listing at their address.

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

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

Craft Beer Map

*As opposed to the many, many other sites that have beer maps available also. We just wanted our own. We also like The Hop Review‘s, as well as the list of Illinois breweries on BeerAdvocate

**We try to keep this map as accurate as possible. That said, we recommend you doublecheck everything — address, hours, etc. — if you’re planning a visit.
