An American west coast Pale Ale chock full of dank, aromatic hops that bite up front, then ease into citrus, and set the finish up to nail the spot.
Half Acre is one of Chicago’s pioneering breweries. Founded in 2007, we originally brewed beer in Black River Falls, Wisconsin for the handful of Chicago bars and shops that would give us a go. Those early, educational days offered us the belief that we could build a brewery which would find support from the locals.
So in 2008, we stitched our Lincoln Ave brewery together with used equipment and sweat. This is where we first brewed Daisy Cutter Pale Ale in 2009. Chicagoans were quick to make this beer their own and spread the word about Half Acre. Growth and lessons came fast. We opened the retail shop – a first of its kind – and a taproom, where a dynamic developed between our brewers and the local beer culture.
In 2013, we purchased 2050 W Balmoral Ave, the place that would eventually allow Half Acre to grow into the regional brewery you know today. We’ve poured our beer at festivals all over the world, collaborated with many celebrated breweries both big and small, and maintained focus on creativity and integrity as the force for what we do.
Today we employ over 100 terrific humans at the Balmoral production brewery, which is also home to our taproom, beer garden and shop. It’s a space where we constantly try to elevate our understanding of what this all can be.
