Peek Inside Lagunitas Chicago Taproom and Brewery, Now Illinois' Largest

[Photos: Marc Much]

Chicago is now home to the second location of one of the nation's top breweries—and the largest brewery in the state—Lagunitas Brewing Company. While the 300,000 square-foot warehouse has been producing beers since April, the 300-seat taproom, meant to be the centerpiece, looks over the entire facility. The grand opening is slated for June 25.

Accessible via a long hallway with twinkling lights and a disco ball, the taproom space features a large center bar, tables perched on the perimeter, long communal picnic-style tables to eat and sip at, and a stage. Expect a rotating selection of beer brewed on-site on 13 taps and grub that often utilizes the beer as an ingredient. Take a look around below.
