For my last day in Chicago back in October I had decided to waltz around the city with just one objective in mind: Make it over to Half Acre! In the meantime there was a goal that I had missed on my first three visits to the city: Go to the Sears Tower! This being said on a couple of occasions I was told by locals that I should have went to the Hancock building and grabbed a drink. Well the Sears Tower is now the Willis Tower and they have the walk out to where you can actually walk over the city…
Scary…Yes, let’s hope the glass doesn’t break! After this it was off to Half Acre to see their brewery and tasting room!
Some wonderful shots on the inside:
The most important part of this is the beer:
This place was pretty chill and amazing at the same time. They had a few wonderful beers including the ever popular “Daisy Cutter” as well as “Lagertown”, “Space IPA”, and “Pony”
I was also also introduced to awesome bands like Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. and Tame Impala.
I ended up buying a 4 pack of “Daisy Cutter” as well as a t-shirt and tulip glass!
I was sad to leave but the artwork that Half Acre displays is some of the most cheerful artwork:
Until next time Chicago and Half Acre! Can’t wait to drink your wonderful beer again!
