Hopsmith Tavern - Chicago
The Prohibition era, of course, has a particularly special place in Chicago's history. It is from this time that Al Capone, America's "Best known gangster," came to become one of the most recognized symbols of the sense of lawlessness stimulated by prohibition in Chicago. The uneasy relationship between gangsters and the public trying to get what they were denied by government helped define the city during this time. These underground heroes were referred to as "Hopsmiths" known as experts during this time producing the finest beer for locals to enjoy in secret safe-havens throughout Chicago. In honor of the Hopsmith who perfected this tradition serving a fundamental need during Prohibition, The Big Onion Tavern Group would like to announce the opening of their newest location; Hopsmith Tavern, located at 15 W. Division in the heart of the Goldcoast.
