The Run Down
As Chicago begins to slowly re-open, we're partaking in a beloved Chicago winter time activity -- 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 easing into the reopening and visiting two of the newest breweries, each with a different vibe, that have opened up their taproom for indoor seating. Between the visits, we're also going to grab ourselves some artisan donuts from a pair of bakers who've setup a space in coffee roasting facility nearby.
