The Run Down

As winter firmly grips Chicago in its grasps, we've got a guide to fight back the only way we know how -- day drinking and binge eating. Our guide takes us to one of the city's designated industrial corridors in West Town. It covers over 1,000-acres and it's mainly filled with warehouses and light manufacturing facilities, but it's also home to a growing and packed beer scene with five breweries and a distillery all clustered within a mile of each other. We're visiting two of the newest breweries, each with a different vibe. Between visits, you'll grab some artisan donuts from a pair of bakers who've setup a space in coffee roasting facility nearby.
