These Chicago breweries and bars have reopened their patios

Patios and beer gardens have reopened, allowing you to sip a drink outdoors.

Chicago restaurants were given the go-ahead to reopen outdoor seating at the beginning of June, welcoming back diners for the first time since the "stay-at-home" order went into place in March. Now Chicago bars and breweries (including those that don't serve food) have been given the green light to reopen patios, rooftops and beer gardens, making way for afternoons spent sipping a beer as the sun beats down.

Naturally, the reopening is accompanied by a list of safety guidelines and restrictions to keep guests and employees safe. Tables must be spaced at least 6 feet apart, groups cannot exceed six people and face coverings must be worn when patrons are not at their seats. There's also a two-hour limit on seatings and an 11pm curfew on the sale of alcohol for on-site consumption.

We've put together a rolling list of Chicago bars and breweries that have reopened for business with access to patios, rooftops and beer gardens. It's by no means comprehensive, but we'll be updating it regularly as more businesses confirm reopening details. Keep in mind that many bars and breweries are operating with reduced hours and requiring reservations—call ahead if you have any questions.

Don't forget to bring along a face mask (to protect yourself and others), maintain social distancing when possible and be patient with staff (they're learning new procedures and adapting to changing conditions). And, it should go without saying, make sure you tip generously.
