Chicago Brewing District
The Chicago brewers located in the southern edge of West Town Chicago and in the manufacturing district just south of West Town called the Kinzie Industrial Corridor are all fiercely proud to call the West side of Chicago their home, and they are passionate about brewing beer and making people happy. Their commonalities brought them together to form the all new Chicago Brewing District and their enthusiasm for their craft and neighborhood inspired them to put a name on it.
The Chicago Brewing District brewers are excited to make an impact on Chicago. Historically an industrial part of the city, the brewers and their tasting rooms are located in a planned manufacturing district just south of West Town referred to as the Kinzie Industrial Corridor. The Chicago Brewing District gives the brewers a chance to introduce people to an area that has been overlooked as a place to relax and unwind with a beer in hand.
Dancing in the Streets takes place outside of On Tour Brewing Company and in walking distance of the other brewers in the group. They'd love to see even more breweries come into the industrial corridor and join the Chicago Brewing District in the future, and they are excited to welcome new patrons to the area for Dancing in the Streets.
The brewers proximity to one another helps them maintain great relationships. They support each other as business owners and they all want to see each other succeed. They visit each other's tasting rooms, help each other out when they need it, and collaborate as a group as often as they can. Dancing in the Streets is a collaborative effort lead by On Tour Brewing and the West Town Chamber of Commerce. The brewers hope to hold more events in the future to showcase The Chicago Brewing District.
