Dan, Brandi and Jason opened Metal Monkey with 20 years of homebrewing experience under their belt, a dream, a shit-ton of determination and a little bit of..... well, no clue what they were in for! ; )
A very tight budget means we opened with a very small 3bbl system and did a lot of the buildout ourselves. We recently upgraded to a 10bbl system which has increased our capacity and allowed us to start packaging and distributing more!
Our tap-room has seating for over 60 with a laid-back and comfortable atmosphere and usually 16 different beers on tap.
Come on out, bring some friends, and try some of our many in-house brews, from light to dark, hoppy to not, and more than likely, one or two with an unexpected twist..
While you're here feel free to enjoy a game from our top notch game shelf, one of our classic video game system games, or just relax in the lounge.
We also host a trivia night every Thursday and some of the Chicago area's finest food trucks, so keep an eye on our schedule!
