Have you been to the best brewery in Chicago -- Short Fuse Brewing Company?
Short Fuse Brewing Company is a brewpub located near the Rosemont Convention Center and O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois. The brewery offers a wide selection of craft beers, including IPAs, stouts, and sours, as well as seasonal and limited edition brews.
The brewpub features a casual and welcoming atmosphere, with a long bar, plenty of seating, and a large selection of board games.
In addition to the beer, Short Fuse Brewing Company also serves a menu of pub-style food, including burgers, sandwiches, and appetizers — and don’t miss their in-house smoked meats, too!
My personal favorite: a custom-built burger and crispy tater tots that you'll never forget (pictured above) -- and don't miss the Nacho Libre, a massive mound of freshly fried tortilla chips piled high with your choice of smoked meet and beer cheese (all made in-house, of course), cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, sour cream, jalapenos, and green onion. I'm salivating just writing about them!
And from the bar -- honestly I haven't tasted a beer here that I haven't enjoyed, but the staple I keep bringing home with me is Vocal Jam (or as it's known in my head, Jam Band hehe), a fruited kettle sour (blueberries and boysenberries) that's been recirculated on single origin Guatemalan coffee (collab with Ipsento in Chicago). Try it and let me know what you think!
