Andersonville Brewing Company

5402 N Clark Street
Chicago, IL 60640


Hamburger Mary's started brewing it's own line of craft beers in 2009, when we expanded and opened "Mary's Rec Room" in the adjacent restaurant space, making us the oldest nano-brewery in Chicago! (basically, that's a fancy term for a really small brewery).

We recently rebranded the space as Andersonville Brewing to highlight the great beers we've been producing. What started as a hobby in the corner of a sports bar has turned into a 200+ barrels/year (400 kegs) operation, with as many as eight of our brews on tap at any given time. Whether you are in the mood for a light golden ale, like our Blonde Bombshell, or a barrel-aged or sour stout... we have something to satisfy all tastes.

In addition to the beers we brew on site, we also offer more than 40 other beers and ciders in bottle and draft, with a primary focus on local Midwest brews. Our food menu comes from the Hamburger Mary's kitchen, and has a wide variety of gourmet half-pound burgers, salads, sandwiches, entrees, appetizers and desserts... many of which contain beer ingredients from our brewing process (like our Bootlegger-BBQ sauce, and the fresh-cut Poutine fries with beer-gravy!)

Andersonville Brewing is still Andersonville's premier sports bar. No matter what the season, we'll have the big game on... NCAA and NFL football, March Madness, Blackhawks, MLB, NBA... even college wrestling! Though there's a special focus on the home teams, SEC Football (War Eagle!) and Big10 basketball, we'll always have the "big game" on and try to accommodate special requests.
