Cruz Blanca

Microbrewery in West Loop & Near West Side

Revered chef Rick Bayless opened this quirky West Loop brewery inspired by beers people were drinking in Mexico City in the 1860s. Quaff fanciful renditions of German doppelbocks, Vienna lagers, wheat beers and wild-fermented sour beers. There are 12 brews on tap and several creative seasonal cocktails (heavy on tequila), as well as a small menu of foodie tacos.
