Maplewood Brewery Beer Selection

Since 2014, Maplewood Brewery & Distillery has been serving up finely crafted beer and spirits. Since their humble beginnings, Maplewood has evolved, now running the Lounge, a neighborhood bar that doubles as a cocktail parlor and taproom that opened in 2017.

Whether you are enjoying a beer at home or a night out with friends you haven’t seen in quite some time, it’s always a good time when Maplewood is involved.

Crafted with Pride in Chicago

Chicago Day Maplewood BreweryThe team at Maplewood is always working to craft a special beer or spirit that always meets then exceeds your expectations. There are always new creations hitting pint and drink glasses, but there are several year-round favorites that have stood the test of time at Maplewood.

Son of Juice is one of them. With tropical fruit notes, Son of Juice is hop-heavy, juicy, and stands out as a low-bitterness IPA. Charlatan, an American pale ale generously hopped with Citra, Centennial, and Simcoe hops, is an award-winner, too. In fact, it was the GABF American Pale Ale Medal Winner in both 2018 and 2016.

Not around the Chicago area? That’s okay!

The Backyard Burger continues to be a takeout favorite, with a pair of quarter-pound patties on a toasted brioche bun with caramelized onion, American cheese, pickles, and a special Dijon aioli. Local poultry and beef are used by the talented kitchen staff.
