Forbidden Root Restaurant & Brewery
1746 W Chicago Ave
Chicago, IL 60622
This West Town brewpub is Chicago's first botanic brewery. Its 18 taps are loaded with the four house flagship beers -- Forbidden Root, Sublime Ginger, Wildflower Pale Ale, and Shady Character -- plus seasonal brews. The industrial chic restaurant space includes a center bar and plenty of banquette seating, and the food menu is a mix of upscale bar food plates like crispy duck leg and pork schnitzel. Tours of the brewery are offered once a week, and there's Sunday brunch.
