Half Acre Beer Co.
Half Acre Beer Co. makes future-forward beers, not to be big but best. Founded in 2007 by Gabriel Magliaro, the company has evolved from a 15-barrel brewhouse on Lincoln Avenue in Chicago’s North Center neighborhood into two breweries producing about 50,000 barrels annually; two Taprooms serving comfortably elevated, plain delicious food; a workshop for custom tap handles; and a direct-to-consumer Store that brings the communal Half Acre experience full circle.
Its diverse portfolio ranges from the decade-old flagship Daisy Cutter Pale Ale, which kickstarted the canned craft beer wave, to taproom-only wyld beers. Half Acre is a culture of humans that respects one another, considers integrity a benchmark for success and appreciates your interest in what we make. In 2018, the company ranked 13th in Craft Beer & Brewing’s survey of best medium-sized breweries in the U.S. Half Acre is at 4257 N. Lincoln Ave. and 2050 W. Balmoral Ave.
