Some Chicago Brewery Patios and Restaurants Reopen This Week:

In Beer News by Karl

Chicago brewery patios, rooftop bars and restaurant outdoor spaces are slowly starting to open this week. Even though not everyone was fully prepared to greet customers on the first day back, we’ve found a number of spots that are ready to get back to business and greet all their masked customers as safely as possible.

Here’s a few that we’ve spotted as open for business today or in the very near future. Do you feel ready to get back to dining out? If so, where are you headed first? Let us know on our socials.

And remember — if you think someplace might be open that we missed, let us know. You can find a full array of every brewery, brewpub, beer bar, beer-friendly restaurant, bottleshop and more on our Chicagoland Craft Beer Map.

Alulu Brewpub in Pilsen:

The new Burning Bush Brewery in North Center opens Friday at 3p:

Per their IG stories, Corridor and Dryhop both have their patios open but they don’t have anything I can embed here. Oh well.

Over in Old Irving Park, Eris Brewery & Cider House has a great looking patio open for 90-minute reservations:

At Fountainhead, the rooftop is open! They’ve got timed seatings and the windows are two hours so you’ve got time for a sandwich and a beer — you can book via Resy.

Just a little bit south of Fountainhead is Four Moon Tavern in Roscoe Village — they’re giving this patio thing a try as well.

Haymarket is working on getting their outdoor space ready and expects to be open by Tuesday, June 9th.

At the Map Room, coffee started at 9, drinks to go at 11, and the patio is open as of 1pm. Cash only, FYI.

Down in Morgan Park, mug club members at Open Outcry get first crack at rooftop reservations when they reopen on Saturday:

And one more rooftop patio we spotted — West Town’s Twisted Spoke is open for business:
