Lake Effect Brewing

This small, Portage Park brewery makes beer in a retrofitted garage situated behind the Chicago Costume Company. Lake Effect is best known for its collaborations with Superdawg, in addition to year-round beer like the Falcon Dive IPA and Bitchin' Blonde Belgian. The owners are currently working on installing a permanent tasting room, but visitors can take a free tour the brewery each Saturday.

Small local brewery hidden away down an alley. Great beer, tours on Saturdays, bottle shop sells cans, bottles, and growler fills. Very welcoming!
