Time Out says

Half Acre outgrew its original brewery in Lincoln Park years ago, moving most of its production to a warehouse just west of Andersonville. It took a few more years for it to open up a taproom in the space, but it was worth the wait. More than double the size of Half Acre's Lincoln Park taproom (which is still open for business), the Balmoral location contains a large indoor bar with plenty of seating and a garden patio with picnic tables—perfect for sipping a fresh Daisy Cutter when it's warm outside. There's also a kitchen on site that serves a menu of roasted meats and veggies that you can eat yourself or share among a group. Plus, there are beers on tap that are exclusive to this outpost—if you're a local beer completist, you'll have to drink at both Half Acre taprooms.
