Welcome to District Brew Yards (aka “the Brew Yards”), the first of its kind in the nation to house a production brewery collective, pour-your-own beer hall, and shop under one roof, right here in Chicago’s Brewing District.

The permanent home to Burnt City Brewing, Around the Bend Beer Co. and Bold Dog Beer Co., the Brew Yards is a creative partnership that brings small breweries together to share resources and knowledge—where we can embrace the pioneering spirit this industry was founded on. We also feature beers on “The Fourth Wall,” a place for radical experimentation and collaboration.

Craft beer fans encounter a one-stop shop to sample a wide variety of beers across 40 taps—like a brewery crawl without having to leave the premises. We serve a menu of smoked meats and other snacks in the beer hall. Our facility is located in a renovated warehouse at 417 N. Ashland Ave. in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood.

We’re creating the ultimate craft beer experience in the Windy City, and we can’t wait for you to come be a part of it.

Around the Bend Beer Co.


Around The Bend Beer Co. takes classic styles and imbues them with an experimental edge. Some of their beers are a little goofy. Others are delicate and refined. But all damn delicious.

Bold Dog Beer Co.


Bold Dog Beer Co. was built on one couple’s shared love of craft beer and bulldogs. They focus on Belgian and American style brews and never fail to #bebold.

Burnt City Brewing


Burnt City Brewing creates dynamically drinkable and experimental beers. They find the balance between times you’re chillin’ on the stoop and times you wanna melt your face off.

The Fourth Wall

The Fourth Wall is the Brew Yards’ brainchild. This place for radical collaboration and experimentation houses a curious compilation of beers you won’t find anywhere else.

At the Brew Yards, you pour your own, which means nothing can hold you back. Our comprehensive menu screens will tell you everything you want to know about the beer before you pour as much, or as little, as you want.
Just set, tilt and pour. 

House-Smoked Meats

Everything you eat at the Brew Yards has been hand-crafted, in house by our amazing team. We slow-smoke our pork, beef & chicken until it melts in your mouth. Add any of our delicious sides for a mouthwatering experience you can pair with any beer you want.
