Chicago’s Best BYOs

Damn, I love a good BYO restaurant. Seems I get comfortable with stopping in with my carefully chosen beer and wine and next thing I know is that the place is shut down or is now serving the liquor themselves. Some places will give you a bit of a “grace period” and let you bring your own for the first month or two after the change over. But soon you’ll be paying usually a pretty large markup on the stuff that used to cost you just a few bucks.

So it’s always nice to get some help keeping up with Chicago’s best BYOs. This article from the Chicago Reader even breaks them down by neighborhood and lists some nearby places to purchase the liquor. Of course, that’s the idea behind . Jonathan Surratt’s site marks 3,158 beer destinations–breweries, brewpubs, bars, and stores–across the country.

Have you tried out What is your favorite BYO restaurant?
