Empirical Brewery is a brew pub in Rogers Park where you’ll pretty much always be able to get a table, even if you’re with a group. They incorporate their beer into as much of the food as possible, and the menu lets you know which dishes are beer-infused. For instance, in addition to stuff like corned beef with beer mustard, there are things like shepherd’s pie wontons with beer gravy. The beers are boldly flavored, and you can definitely taste their influence in the food. So if you don’t like ale in your brussels sprout salad, this might not be the place for you.
