Begyle Brewing

Top choice Microbrewery

in Lincoln Square & Ravenswood

Tucked in a warehouse by the train tracks, Begyle's little taproom is a community hub. Friends play cards at one table, an old guy chills with his dog next to them, while work mates discuss business nearby. The blond and wheat ales are mainstays of the 15 beers on tap, but there are also some monster stouts and triple IPAs.

They come in 5oz pours and pints, and you can bring in your own food to eat alongside them. Brewery tours ($10) take place at noon on Saturday and include generous samples.
