Full Tilt Brewing was recommended by one of my friends, who knows the owners of the brewery, cousins Nick and Dan. They started this as a hobby doing home brews in 2008, and turned it “full tilt” into a brewery 😉
This brewery is located in a light blue brick building on York Road called the Accelorator Building. It opens with 2 large garage doors that feel very inviting, and also make it feel like you are outside. There are tons of TVs to allow you to sit back, relax, and enjoy, particularly on a game day. The names of their beers are great; I especially enjoyed the “Go Bananas!” drink. Parking is free on the street, in front of the brewery. After you finish up, I recommend driving one block westward to explore the unbelievably beautiful Homeland neighborhood near Loyola University. Then, you can head to Hampden!
