Metropolitan Brewing

This is an archived listing.


3057 N. Rockwell St.




Metropolitan Brewing is located within Rockwell on the River, a complex of rehabbed heavy timber buildings on the North Branch of the Chicago River. Originally a tannery, the transformed campus is also home to Judson & Moore Distillery, Metropolis Coffee Company, and office tenants. The brewery and its pubic spaces were developed to blend in with the surroundings. The patio sits right on the west bank of the river, and the tap room's floor-to-ceiling windows draw in the scenery. D├ęcor and furnishings are clean and simple and signage is kept to a minimum, so as not to compete with the natural beauty of this site.
