Named for the Haymarket Affair of 1886—a violent confrontation between workers and police in Chicago that lead to the establishment of the eight-hour work day—this brewpub has been serving cold beers and hot grub in the West Loop for more than a decade. The cavernous space houses a couple of bars and a kitchen that churns out standard brewery fare (think burgers, tavern-style pizzas, fried cheese curds and the obligatory giant pretzel). Adventerous drinkers will love digging into Haymarket's stylistically diverse beer list, which runs the gamut from blonde ales to barrel-aged barleywines (and even a couple of hard seltzers). It's a reliable spot for a couple of beers while you wait for a table at restaurants that line Randolph Street and Fulton Market.
