No One Comes Between You and Your Beer
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. Now the exclusive home of award-winning Lillie’s Q, the Brew Yards offers Southern-style BBQ, chicken and sides along with homemade craft beer.
Lillie’s Q is Now at District Brew Yards!
We’re pleased to announce a new, non-brewery partner has moved in and is ready for business: Lillie’s Q, serving up world-famous barbecue from Founder/Chef Charlie McKenna. We’re thrilled to have this award-winning BBQ partner now available for pickup and delivery! Visit our food page to see the food selection!
The Patio is Open!
That’s right, buds! We now have a 90+ person patio that is open for business! Enjoy your favorite Brew Yards beers alongside our awesome Southern-facing murals.
To enjoy the patio, guests first need to enter through the main entrance of District Brew Yards at 417 N. Ashland Ave., check-in at the front desk to get a beer card for the pour-your-own taps, and use the new social distancing policies for accessing the beer walls or ordering barbecue, then move to the outdoor seating.
A friendly reminder, District Brew Yards is 21+.
Dogs are allowed on the new patio.
Please enter through the main entrance, not the patio door.

The Brew Yards invites you to create a completely unique, customizable experience. Discover your new favorite beer, pour as much (or as little) as you’d like, get the freshest comforts delivered right to your door. See what’s possible at the Brew Yards.
Everything in Cans
At the Brew Yards we can nearly everything we brew. That means you can take 16oz cans with you wherever you go or delivered wherever you are.
From everyday lunches to family reunions, smoked meats & BBQ are always a crowd-pleaser. Order Lillie’s Q for food, beer and all the fixins’. It’s almost too easy.
With 40 beers on tap, you’ll always find something to please your palate. Light lagers, pistachio cream ales, bourbon barrel-aged boozies; we’ve got them all.
Open Beer Hall
Our communal seating makes us a great space to gather! We have plenty of space and we’ve expanded our seating options for your comfort. No splitting tabs, no pressure, just freedom.
Our adjacent patio space is a sweet treat in the Chicago summers. Enter through the Brew Yards, pour your own and grab a patio table with your buds. Let’s day drink.
Take It To-Go
Gearing up for the big game or just having a few friends over? Stop into the Brew Yards to pick up a case of anything you want at any time. Get a few pounds of brisket while you’re at it & you’re party host of the year. Cheers.
