CHICAGO, July 17, 2018
The American craft beer bar franchise, Beerhead Bar & Eatery, has finalized an agreement to make its grand-slam city debut as part of the much anticipated Addison & Clark complex in the Lakeview neighborhood. Across the street from Wrigley Field, Beerhead will begin serving its more than 500 brands of beer to baseball fans and Wrigley-goers alike in the spring of 2019.
In a relaxed, fun atmosphere, Beerhead aims to expose guests to a seemingly infinite world of American craft beers and spirits, including selections from around the world, served by a highly trained and knowledgeable staff. Beerhead will feature hundreds of local and American craft beer choices in its wide selection, as well as a lunch and dinner casual dining. With a mezzanine stage, this new location will also feature live performances characteristic of this growing brand.
For the first time in Illinois, we're bringing Beerhead Bar & Eatery out of the Chicago suburbs and we cannot think of a better place to debut than Wrigley, said Beerhead Bar and Eatery Co-Founder, Greg Goodrich. Perfect before, during, or after a game or for a night on the town, we believe Beerhead's unique concept and vast beer and food selection will bring something new and exciting to the Addison & Clark development. Located on an L-shaped, 2.3 acre property spanning Addison and Clark streets, Addison & Clark will include 148 apartments and 150,000 square feet of retail, entertainment and dining. The project is a joint venture development between Bucksbaum Retail Properties, LLC and M&R Development.
Construction is underway with plans to open in the spring of 2019. We are thrilled to have Beerhead join our expanding list of restaurants, retail and entertainment at Addison & Clark, said John Bucksbaum, CEO of Bucksbaum Retail Properties. Its massive offerings of unique beer and food are going to be a hit in the Lakeview community for tourists and Chicago residents alike.
