In 2009, Metropolitan Brewing was the first brewery to open in Chicago in 10 years. We specialize in German-style beers, mostly lagers. Chicagoans all the way; we make the beer we like to drink. Period. Lagers are the perfect vehicles for our favorite toasty, bready malts and bright, earthy hops. We work hard to showcase a variety of lagers, from a delicate, traditional Kölsch-style beer to a robust, jet-black Schwarzbier. Goofy, yet determined; scrappy, yet reliable; passionate, yet precise, count on Metro to deliver solid, dialed-in beers brewed solely to make people happy.
