Welcome to Chicago’s South Loop Brewery

Want to know what’s happening in the taproom this month? Among some of our fun plans we will be re-releasing our customer favorite saison, the Sarah Meloncholy, tapping a limited release beer in honor of the Chicago Craft Beer Week, hosting the official after party for the Chicago Beer Classic, tail-gaiting at U.S. Cellular Field and continuing with some of our monthly favorites like the Neighbors Night, Speakeasy Sunday, and run club. Check out our calendar for an at-a-glance view of our events or delve deeper and see what’s happening in May.


Vice District Brewing has joined Chicago’s craft beer revolution with our south loop taproom right on Michigan Avenue. Stop on in and sample our ever rotating taps of our on-site-brewed craft beer. We’re a small brewery started by two local home brewers whose wives finally kicked us out of our basements and into the the world of professional brewing – we’d love to meet you and show you the brews we’ve come up with. We’re BYOF, so feel free to order your favorite cuisine right to our door.  And we’re also pet friendly, so you’ve really got no reason to not stop in and try a pint.  Of course, if your pet is larger than a motorcycle we might ask you to leave half of it outside.

We have board games available for when you are feeling playful and outlets around the taproom for when you are feeling work-ful (lame!).  Our TVs are tuned to your favorite Chicago sports team and our awesome bartenders are always looking for some conversation.

We are located blocks away from McCormick Place/McCormick Square, Soldier Field, Grant Park, Millennium Park, and the Museum Campus. Whether you’re from out of town visiting, or exploring the city you call home we are nearby waiting for you to join us!

So come on in, have a beer, and make yourself at home.  We can’t wait to pour you a glass.
