Cruz Blanca Cerveceria
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
In addition to some of Chicago's most delicious Mexican restaurants (including the indespensable tortas he serves in three terminals at O'Hare), chef Rick Bayless is also behind this brewery and taqueria, directly next door to his Leña Brava restaurant on Randolph Street. The menu at Cruz Blanca Cerveceria include tacos piled with pork belly al pastor and crispy shrimp as well as more interesting options like the Oaxcan-style tlayudas, which are giant, shareable tostadas topped with beans, cheese, salsa and your choice of protein. The beer ranges from solid lagers and pale ales to more experimental wild ales and rich, chocolate porters inspired by Mexican ingredients and flavors. If you like to have a great meal while knocking back a few brews, you can't go wrong here.
