Eris Brewery & Cider House review image

Eris Brewery & Cider House

$$$$

Eris is in a remodeled Masonic temple in Old Irving Park, and it’s kept some of the old details, like exposed brick and an ominous-looking safe in the entryway. It’s a huge space that can easily fit large groups, but also isn’t bad for a date. There’s a wide variety of ciders available, plus a few beers. And the food offerings include vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free dishes - so while you can get a Polish sausage wrapped in bacon (the Hodag), you can also get a vegan roasted cauliflower steak. Not every place in Chicago could easily accommodate a mixer for vegans and bacon lovers, so consider this a crowd-pleasing utility spot.
