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.

40 Taps

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.

Casual Patio

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.
