A bright, minimalist brewery in Logan Square, Hopewell sort of feels like the lobby of a start-up, but one where everyone’s having fun and enjoying their lives. Decorated with light wood and white walls, the space is usually bustling - you’ll find groups of people working on laptops, playing board games, or just talking, and both dogs and outside food are welcome. If you’re not drinking one of their drafts, their eight-ounce Lil’ Buddy is the cutest can of beer you’ll find in Chicago.
