Empirical Brewery taproom opens, adds to the Ravenswood/ Andersonville buzz

We stopped by the newly opened Empirical Brewery taproom on Saturday.  The warehouse location on industrial 1801 West Foster (at Ravenswood) retains a gritty feel.  The $2.00 tasters were a great way to start off  birthday dinner.

We are able to walk down to the new taproom just a few blocks from our Lincoln Square/ Ravenswood neighborhood on the way to North Clark Street in Andersonville. The drinking and restaurant choices are really outstanding from all the Lincoln Square/ Edgewater/ Uptown Community Areas that border the Empirical location including Bowmanville, Ravenswood and Andersonville.

We headed to Bar Ombra in Andersonville for dinner after Empirical. We've  lived near the Andersonville "downtown" over 10 years and it keeps evolving.
