According to a recent article from Block Club Chicago, Other Half Brewing will open in the renovated Ramova Theatre, located at 3520 S Halsted St.
A representative of Other Half Brewing was not immediately available for commentary upon What Now Chicago’s request.
While an official opening date has yet to be released, according to the article from Block Club Chicago, “The redeveloped Ramova Theatre is set to open in the coming months after sitting vacant for over three decades.”
“The brewery chose to expand to Chicago and join the Ramova project for one primary reason: music. Being connected to a music venue allows for unique collaborations and the fostering of community around craft beer, an important goal of Other Half’s, said Matt Mohanan, brewery co-founder with Richardson and Andrew Burman.”
“Other Half Ramova will include a taproom that runs along Halsted Street. Behind the taproom will be a glass wall where visitors can check out the brewery production floor below. Beers will be made on-site, with around 20 draft lines available in the taproom. The final roster of beers is still being planned, though there will be concert venue staples including IPAs and lagers, the Other Half team said,” the article from Block Club Chicago states.
Other Half Brewing’s website dives further into its history, stating, “Sam Richardson, Matt Monahan, and Andrew Burman founded Other Half Brewing Company in Brooklyn, NY in 2014 with a simple mission: to create beers that they wanted to drink from a company that they wanted to be a part of. Their vision was to push the boundaries of beer and the culture that surrounds it by representing the “Other Half” of the industry.”
“Since opening our first taproom in 2014, we’ve been dedicated to building the evolution of the local brewery, and have since grown to add spaces in New York City, Washington DC, Philadelphia, the Finger Lakes, and Buffalo. We invest in each of our local communities with limited-edition beer, merchandise, and experiences. We create spaces for real-world relationships to grow, and always leave room for innovation to take us in new directions.”
