The most award-winning brewpub in Chicago

Opened in July 2001, Piece has been serving award-winning handcrafted lagers and ales produced in small batches in our seven-barrel brewhouse. In 2006 Piece won Champion Small Brewpub at the World Beer Cup. Most recently, our former assistant brewer has returned to man the helm. Keil Weimer, who worked under Jonathan Cutler from 2014-2019, moved back to Chicago to continue the Piece tradition of brewing true to style, classic beers.

Piece brews have won an impressive total of 28 medals at the World Beer Cup and the Great American Beer Festival, making Piece Chicago's most award-winning brewpub.

On Draft

  • Leroy Bornhop Double IPA — 9.4% — $9 Tulip Light malt body with a huge hop citrus and tropical hop profile. Not like its any of your business, but this DIPA was brewed with heaps of Cashmere, Nelson, Chinook, El Dorado and Ahtanum and is bursting with notes of papaya, mango and grapefruit. Boy, this is great!
  • Door Code - German Pilsner — 5.17% — $7 Stein / $14 crowler / $26 growler A thoughtful use of Saphir and Super-Saazer hops lend themselves to an elegant and lady-like 36 IBU (International Birthday Units). Satisfying and refreshing, amicably hopped to please those unfortunate enough to not be born on 5/17. If you have to ask whose Birthday its for, sorry sweetie, you can’t afford it.
  • Tiny, Sneaky 3 Piece Suit - Schwarzbier — 4.9% — $7 Stein / $14 crowler / $26 growler A roasty, quaffable black lager brewed with our friends from 3 Sheeps Brewing (Sheboygan, WI). Sneaky roasted malts make their way into this tiny 4.9% beer perfect for the Summer.
  • Pretty Little Lagers - Munich Helles — 5.7% — $7 Stein / $14 crowler / $26 growler A bready and mildly bitter German Helles lagered for just under 18 weeks.
  • Dark-N-Curvy German Dunkelweizen — 6% — $9 22oz Three time GABF award-winning dark wheat German-style weizen ale.
  • Top Heavy Hefeweizen — 5.5% — $9 22oz / $12 crowler / $24 growler Our five-time award winning light German weiss beer.
  • Golden Arm Kölsch — 5% — $6 pint / $10 crowler / $20 growler This traditionally brewed, award-winning German Kolsch ale is straw colored, crisp, and refreshing, similar to a lager in many respects.
  • The Weight — 6% — $7 pint / $14 crowler / $26 growler Jonathan Cutler's award-winning pale ale. A house favorite.
