About Half Acre Beer Co.

Half Acre Beer Co has two breweries on the north side of Chicago.  We brew classic american micro styles, weighted barrel offerings and wyld beers that traverse the landscape of mixed fermentation. Our aim is to brew technically raw beer for the collective odyssey.

Built in 2008, the Lincoln brewery is the original. It houses our retail shop, a tap room with a full kitchen and brewhouse. 

Our Balmoral brewery was built in 2015, granting us the opportunity to further our abilities. It is not yet open to the public, but we look forward to sharing it in the future.
