Don't come to the Whiner Beer Company taproom expecting extremely bitter IPAs or hefty stouts—co-founders Brian Taylor and Ria Neri are more interested in more subtle sour and Belgian varieties. Very few other brewers in Chicago are making an apple-infused Kölsch (Et La Tête) or a Biere de Garde that uses experimental Hüll Melon hops (Rrubrique a Brac). The small taproom is housed in the Plant, a non-profit net-zero energy food production space situated in an old warehouse in the Back of Yards neighborhood. If you wholeheartedly embrace funky and singular brews, go ahead and grab a flight.
