Craft Your Own Experience

Three breweries. 40 taps. Endless possibilities.

Our Story

Welcome to the District Brew Yards

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.

Our Recipes, Our Passion

From every beer we brew to each spoonful of baked beans, our recipes are hand-crafted in-house by our creative teams.

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.

Order Beer Delivery

From office lunches to family reunions, our smoked meats & BBQ are always a crowd pleaser. Order DBY catering for food, beer and all the fixins’. It’s almost too easy.

Gather a Group

Our communal seating makes us a great space of groups! Whether you’ve got 4 or 40 friends you can find space at the Brew Yards reservation or not. No splitting tabs, no pressure, just freedom. 


We keep it cool and casual at the Brew Yards but we certainly like to have fun. There’s always something going on. Keep up with us through our Event Calendar. 

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.
