Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ale, a Michigan-based brewery known for barrel-aged sours, has arrived in Chicago with a 5,800-square-foot brewpub in Hyde Park. It’ll serve pizza, burgers, Korean chicken wings, and more when Jolly Pumpkin Pizzeria and Brewery opens on Tuesday, October 24 at 5251 S. Harper Court.
The interiors are supposed to carry “an urban, rustic vibe.” There’s plenty of oak throughout the restaurant, a nod to the beer’s barrels. A special booth in the center of the space is shaped like a beer barrel and could give customers a little privacy. TVs hang behind the 30-tap bar, and there are large posters inspired by beer bottle labels. The brewery will also have outdoor seating.
Take a tour through the brewery below. Jolly Pumpkin is Hyde Park’s first brewpub and the company’s first outside of The Mitten State. The company was founded in 2004 in Dexter, Michigan and they have four facilities in the state. The brewpub opens on Tuesday in Hyde Park.
