It’s never been especially hard to find a drink around Wrigley Field, but after Friday, beer drinkers really will have no excuse. That’s when Beerhead Bar & Eatery makes its Chicago debut, opening with more than 400 different beers, including 50 rotating taps.
The bar and restaurant chain first opened in Vernon Hills in 2012 as The Beer Market. (The name was changed in 2017.) Since then, the concept has expanded to other suburbs of Chicago, while also branching out to Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan. This is its first venture in the city.
Beerhead is in the Addison & Clark complex, one of the new mega-projects that have sprouted up around Wrigley Field. It joins Do-Rite Donuts & Chicken, Lucky Strike Social, Shake Shack and Kilwins in the same building.
