metropolitan brewing taproom
Scenic taproom with 12 rotating taps of german-style lagers
Doug Hurst and Tracy Hurst opened Metropolitan in December 2008, in a warehouse in the Ravenswood neighborhood, at a time when the city was home to just a handful of breweries.
Tremendous reclaimed wooden bar, tons of seating, a fabulous outdoor patio spanning the length of the taproom right on the river. Pups welcome, friendly bar staff, free parking… need I continue?
This brewery is doing a whole lot of things exceptionally well! I can picture a warm day in Chicago sitting on their patio with some beer and a Kuma’s Burger looking out at the river.
I love the Metro Taproom. It’s a blend of city and nature, dog friendly with BEER. A roomy, open space, with access to gaze at nature, pet all the dogs, and not leave the city
