Our Beer

IF YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE “TAPROOM” IN YOUR NAME, YOU NEED TO BE SERIOUS ABOUT BEER.

With each restaurant offering an impressive variety of beers (110 to be exact), Old Chicago is the destination for customers seeking both the familiar and the unusual in domestic, imported, or even local craft brews, some of which are exclusive to Old Chicago. We take pride in being the local beer expert. We have 8-10 local taps, making up just a small part of the 30-50 beers on tap available in each location. Bottled or poured, we’ve perfected the beer experience. Here’s how:

  • Expertise matters. We provide extensive beer knowledge training to both management and staff. Our bartenders undergo specialized Cicerone certification training to refine their expertise on everything related to beer and brewing.
  • To ensure a quality pour, our restaurants use the best draft equipment in the country and we train our servers to get it right every time.
  • We use glassware that is specifically designed to enhance each of the beers we serve. It’s a subtle detail that makes a difference and elevates the guests’ experience.
  • We offer a large number of local and regional beers in each restaurant’s lineup. It’s a key to forming loyalty in the community.
  • Each restaurant’s digital beer menu boards communicate beer selection and availability. It shows just how serious we are about our beer collections.
