This brew pub in Logan Square is all the way at the end of a residential street, and feels like a fun corner bar. Maplewood serves food like poutine and buffalo mac and cheese, and also distills their own booze, so the cocktail list doesn’t come across like an afterthought. Just know that it’s a small space, so on a busy night plan on standing for awhile.
