Sketchbook Brewing Company’s new Tap Room, located at 821 Chicago Ave., opened to the public at noon on April 15th, 2016.  

This cozy space features:

  • A variety of brews on tap (go here for the list).
  • A light food menu plus BYOF-friendly policy (bring your own food)
  • Free wi-fi

The Sketchbook team has designed their intimate new Tap Room to reflect their DYI, local roots. Interesting features include:

  • 19th century fir flooring used to create a slatted portal around the bar (courtesy of Evanston ReBuilding Warehouse).
  • Bar and table tops repurposed from old bowling alleys
  • Neon by neon artist Greg Mowery, door mural by local artist Joe Taylor (Sketchbook's logo designer)
  • Vintage mis-matched bar stools
