Overview
Half Acre Beer Company is a brewery in Chicago, Illinois. The company was founded by Gabriel Magliaro in 2006, with its office located in Chicago. The recipes for the beers were developed in Chicago and the beer was initially brewed at Sand Creek Brewery in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. Half Acre's first beer, Half Acre Lager, debuted in August 2007. In March 2009, Half Acre Beer began production in its own brewery on Lincoln Avenue in the North Center neighborhood of Chicago. Building upon their growing popularity, a tap room adjacent to the brewhouse opened in 2012. Due to its continued success, a kitchen was added in January 2016, completing the transition to a full service brew pub. In 2015, the brewery expanded by opening a second, larger brewhouse on Balmoral Avenue, approximately a mile and a half from the Lincoln Avenue facility. In 2017, the brewing facility on Balmoral added a tap room with full kitchen service. Both locations offer 1 brewery tour a week. At Lincoln it is held at 11am on Saturdays, at Balmoral it occurs at 11am on Sundays.
