There are few better places in the country to drink beer than Chicago. From trailblazers like Goose Island (still making good beer under the Anheuser-Busch banner), to new-school game-changers like the Latin America-inspired 5 Rabbit Cervecería, the city cares about great brewing—and its people know how to throw down.
Recently, we sent Complex News host/turn-up specialist Sean Evans on a tour of some of Chi-Town’s finest brewpubs and bars to see what the local beer scene is all about. The highlights included the following:
