Everyone’s a worker

 
 

Which means everyone deserves a great beer.

 

Haymarket Brewing is a bar for working people — all kinds of working people: first responders, truck drivers, IT technicians, dentists, lawyers, electricians, chefs, brewers…anyone who wants a place to come and put down their hat after a long day on the job.

We celebrate working people in our name, which comes from our location: Chicago’s Haymarket Square, the site of the world famous Haymarket Affair of 1886.

That affair — which included a demonstration, riot and bombing — led directly to the creation of the eight-hour work day, and annual May Day celebrations that are still held around the globe.
