Half Acre Beer Company sits at 4257 N. Lincoln Ave. A 12-minute walk from the Damen Brown Line stop, the company itself sells clothing items, glassware, local coffee, music, and hot sauce. In the brewery store they also, of course, sell their very own freshly brewed beer in various size growlers, kegs, and cans. Just next door in their newly opened Taproom, eight different taps are available as well as beer to go when the store is no longer open.
