Bottle Shop Questions... Answered.
Our bottle shop opened in February 2016. It's a straight forward retail space inside our Dickens Ave. brewery where we sell our packaged beer to go. It's small. It's industrial. It's not a taproom, sorry. But we do have one of those four miles east at 1460 N. Kingsbury in Lincoln Park.
BOTTLE SHOP HOURS OF OPERATION
Kegs and large pre-orders can picked up Monday-Friday by appointment
WHAT'S ACTUALLY HERE?
Beer to go! Apex Predator, Troublesome, Very Very Far, and Tooth and Claw for sure. We'll also have a stash of current seasonals and one-offs listed on our "Release" page. Best advice: follow us on BeerMenus for up to the minute inventory. We will often post updates to the Bottle Shop Twitter account as well. What's not available? Lots of samples, sorry.
You'll find our humble bottle shop in the brewery at 3925 W. Dickens Ave in the great city of Chicago. It is not a bar or tasting room and there are no growler fills. We do not accept cash; just credit/debit cards. Oh, and there's no public restroom, so please plan accordingly. If you’re making a delivery, we are here Monday-Friday, please read this page.
RETAIL KEG AVAILABILITY
We try to accommodate advance keg orders based on our production schedule. Half- and sixth-barrels of Apex Predator, Troublesome, Very Very Far, and Tooth & Claw may be available depending on when you need them. Please utilize our Keg Request Form to start the process. Requests are managed on a Monday-Friday schedule. But if you need a keg in a pinch, we have 1/6bbls of Apex Predator on-hand at Mousetrap! And the taproom is open 7 days a week.
ARE THERE TOURS?
Not at this location. But our taproom in Lincoln Park hosts free tours every Sunday @ 1pm & 3pm. Make reservations on our Tours page or try your luck the day-of by checking in with the To Go Counter!
Public Transportation: 1 block north of the Armitage bus; 1/2 block east of the Pulaski bus; and 1/2 mile from lots of things: the Healy Metra stop (MD-North) with its Divvy bike station, plus North Ave, Fullerton and Kimball bus routes.
Biking: Armitage (one block south) is a designated bike route. Pulaski has some crazy drivers but it's definitely wide enough to accommodate bikes. Other north-south streets to the east of us are calm and generally bike-friendly. The western trailhead of The 606 elevated path is 0.6 miles away. Please feel free to bring your bike inside!
Driving: Street parking is free and (usually) easy. In normal traffic, the brewery is about 15 minutes from both the Kennedy (I-90/94) and Eisenhower (I-290).
