Q I love Haymarket beer! Can I buy it in bottles or cans?
A WE love that you love our beer! Unfortunately, at this time, Haymarket does NOT distribute packaged beer (YET!). We do however, sell ALL our house beers in 64 oz. growlers. A new growler is $5 for the glass, and the beer is 3 times the pint price of the beer. (so you're getting a free pint) We also fill outside brand growlers, as long as they are clean and happy
Q Where can I park?
A There is street parking available on all the streets parallel to Halsted, to the West. There is also a paid parking lot a block away at Halsted and Lake. You can also heck in at the Host Stand, as there may be some limited passes available for our loading zone.
Q Do you offer tours?
A Why yes, we LOVE to show off our brewery! We have a set tour schedule on Sundays - tours start at 12, 2, and 4. The tour includes a 12oz. beer as well as a guided tasting of 4 4 oz. beers. $15 per person. Reservations are recommended, and can be made by calling 312-638-0700
Q Can I buy a keg or fill a corney keg?
A Nope, sorry. Again, at this time Haymarket does not distribute.
Q I'd like to have a bachelor party/wedding/bar mitzvah/happy hour/super bowl/divorce party at Haymarket. Do you have private space available? Can I get a drink package featuring Amazing Haymarket beers?
A Sure! We'd love to help you celebrate all your most important events! We have the availability to book out our Drinking & Writing theater for private events. The room capacity is 150. Our event planner would be happy to guide you through all the options we offer, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Groups of 25 or less that do not need private space or want banquet packages can call the host stand and make reservations with the manager on duty. Drink packages are available to groups that book private space.
Q Live music! I heard Haymarket has an amazing stage! How do I find out about upcoming acts? How do I book my band to play at Haymarket?
A All of our upcoming events are right on this website - under that tab that says "Events". We also list all our upcoming events on our facebook page. Want to play here? Send us a note through the website!
Q I heard about the Local 737 Beer Drinkers Union. Whats that all about? Do you have a mug club?
A The Local 737 Beer Drinkers Union is our customer loyalty program! You can sign up for membership at any time, here at the pub. Fill out an information card, and within a week or so, you'll receive a welcome email letting you know that your membership card is ready to be picked up. Once you have your card, have your server or bartender swipe it each time you drink with us. You'll accrue points for every visit. You'll also be invited to our Union meetings, where members get to try new beers before they are tapped for the general public. Attendance at Union meetings also enters you into a raffle for some amazing prizes, including Beer Festival tickets and brewer's dinners.
Q I heard about a party bus shuttle to Blackhawks games.
A Best party bus in town! We run 2 free shuttles to each (non Saturday) home game for the Blackhawks! Shuttles leave 45 min and 15 min before game time. The shuttle has tasty Haymarket beer on board, and drops off right outside the United Center. It picks back up around 10 minutes after the game, at Madison and Wood. The driver will give you his business card to text if you can't find the bus.
Q I collect beer labels from all over the world and from different years. I'm interested in beer labels from glass bottles, PET-bottles and kegs. Unfortunately, I have very few labels from USA breweries because it's very hard to get them in my country.
A Great to see you're still reading this list, but lets go back to a few of the answers above. We currently DO NOT package or distribute. Thus, we don't have bottle labels, or caps, but we DO have coasters. I can also send you a lovely glass growler for $5 plus shipping, or a logo pint glass for $8 plus shipping.
Q Why isn't Mathias Imperial I.P.A. on tap every time I come visit?
A We love Mathias! We love that you love Mathias. However, Citra hops are pretty hard to come by. They are what gives Mathias it's distinctive flavor. We make it as often as we can, which means it just won't be on tap all the time. Luckily, we have lots of other tasty beers to choose from. As for other beers you may have had here but aren't on the list right now - some beers are seasonal, and will be back when in season. The Double IPA on tap right now may never be back, but we'll definitely have a Double IPA again.
Q Where else can I get Haymarket beer?
A Unless you are at a charitable event that we are sponsoring, or at a beer festival we're taking part in, nowhere. You should come and get a growler and take it with you!
Q I'm gluten intolerant - can you accommodate that?
A Many of our menu items are made without gluten-containing ingredients. However, our kitchen and staff handle multiple items that do contain gluten, so some cross-contamination may occur. Please let your server know about any sensitivities you may have.
