The Barrel


Located in the heart of Pilsen since the 1950s, The Barrel is a neighborhood mainstay with a modern approach to beer drinking. The corner tavern’s menu is chock full of craft beer, and focused primarily on local breweries. The colorful chalkboards display the current selection on tap, and in bottles and cans. The big names are certainly accounted for (like Half Acre and Lagunitas), but expand your Chicago craft beer prowess to the smaller, lesser-known locals that The Barrel has to offer.
