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 Open For Indoor Dining! 

Lillie's Q BBQ is now at District Brew Yards

Home to Lillie’s Q Barbeque and Chicken Shack!

Get all your Lillie’s Q favorites INSIDE the Brew Yards! 
We’re thrilled to have Chef Charlie Mckenna and his award-winning team with us at DBY. Order barbeque by the half-pound, delicious fried chicken and your favorite sides for pickup or delivery. 

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.

Please 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. THEN proceed to the patio.

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.
