There is more to a great brewery than great beer. Growing a successful business takes leadership from minds that find solutions rather than problems.

Since 2007, Gabriel Magliaro and his colleagues at Half Acre Beer Company have proven themselves to be leaders in the beer community, churning out innovative brews surrounded by a constantly growing culture that is as equally impressive.

Each day we head to Naperville to keep our brewery in operation but, like many people, our hearts are spread around. We all have our families, our hometowns, and friends that we miss--places we love where we like to think a piece of us always is.

This is true for the heart of this brewery as well. There are a ton of places we love in Chicagoland, but fewer are the places we think of as our home. About a month after we opened our doors and began to flood this region with beer, we had the privilege to grace the lines of Bangers & Lace. Like lifelong friends, our relationship with B&L has continued to flourish. Their support has been unwavering and continues to grow. When we set out to arrange the places we were going to celebrate our first anniversary, there was no doubt where our city party needed to be.
