Half Acre Beer Company

Half Acre Beer Company is invested in each end of the brewing spectrum: time-honored classics and experimental, sensory-expanding releases.

Founded in 2007 by Gabriel Magliaro, the company has evolved from a 15-barrel brewhouse on Lincoln Avenue in Chicago’s North Center neighborhood into two breweries producing over 45,000 barrels annually; two taprooms serving comfortably elevated, delicious food; a workshop for custom tap handles; and a direct-to-consumer store that brings the communal Half Acre experience full circle.

Its diverse portfolio ranges from the decade-old flagship Daisy Cutter Pale Ale, one of the original tallboy canned craft beers, to taproom-only wild beers.

In 2018, the company ranked 13th in Craft Beer & Brewing’s survey of best medium-sized breweries in the U.S.

Half Acre as a company is made up of humans that respect one another, consider integrity a benchmark for success and appreciate your interest in what they make.

Half Acre is located in Chicago at 4257 North Lincoln Avenue and at 2050 West Balmoral Avenue.
