Motor Row Brewing, Chicago

#11 of 14 in Breweries & Distilleries in Chicago
Brewery · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
Located at 2337 South Michigan Avenue, our historic Landmark building takes you back in time to when the thriving neighborhood was home to countless automotive dealerships and showrooms, bars, and even the legendary Chess Records – one of the original recording studios in the city.

Created by our Brewmaster, Frank Lassandrello, we make everything from spot-on interpretations of traditional styles to some of the wildest beers you’ll ever drink. Our two year-round offerings, Out of the Loop IPL and Reclamation Lager, harken back to the Midwest’s proud tradition of great lager beers. We will also offer extended seasonal releases (including a series of easy-drinking Belgian-style ales, perfect for summer) as well as experimental one-offs.

The brewery will have a pub-sized brewhouse, but with enough tanks to make our annual output ~4000 barrels – a larger capacity than most breweries our size. The facility will also feature a retail/tasting space up front and a full taproom upstairs which will open shortly after the brewery does.

We invite you to come in and sample our beers, or hang out and have a pint or three!

Keep an eye out for us on draft at your favorite beer bars around the city.

  • Was in town for a convention at McCormick Place and saw this place pop up on Apple Maps. Saw it had good reviews and decided to check it out, we were not disappointed. We were in the second floor...  more »
  • Small but good beers in an open brewery in the South Loop Motor Row district. No food menu but they did have a popcorn machine going. Their 2 IPAs were our favorite beers.  more »
  • Top notch brews with a fun events space above the bar. Go for the comedy stay for the beers.
  • Casual, local, hangout brewery with super friendly employees! There's also free popcorn! I came here on a Saturday afternoon and it was busy, but the service was prompt even though there was only one person behind the bar. I'll be back to check it jazz night or comedy night!
