The Run Down
As winter firmly grips Chicago in its grasp, 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, 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. You'll visit two breweries, each with a different vibe. Between visits, you'll grab some artisan donuts from a pair of bakers who've set up a space in a coffee roasting facility nearby.
