German beer hall crawl in Lincoln Square

Hungry for a taste of Lincoln Square’s German heritage? This lineup covers the best of the neighborhood, starting with a few bars on Irving Park before heading north through Lincoln Square proper.

Start your trip by hopping off the Irving Park Brown Line and heading to Resi’s Bierstube (2034 W. Irving Park Road 773-472-1749) for a pretzel and a pint in the beer garden.

Next, fill up with a few traditional dishes at Laschet’s Inn (2119 W. Irving Park Road 773-478-7915), which serves creamed herring, bratwurst sandwiches, schnitzel and sauerbraten.

Move the party north to Lincoln Avenue, where you can hit Glunz Bavarian Haus (4128 N. Lincoln Ave. 773-472-4287) for a German, Austrian or Belgian beer on tap.

A bus ride up Lincoln brings you to Carola’s Hansa Clipper (4659 N. Lincoln Ave. 773-878-3662), where you can cue up some German tunes on the jukebox.

If you’re still upright, there’s always Huettenbar (4721 N. Lincoln Ave. 773-561-2507) and Chicago Brauhaus (4732 N. Lincoln Ave. 773-784-4444) for another round.

If you’ve been on a day crawl, end your adventure on the rooftop at Gene’s Sausage Shop (4750 N. Lincoln Ave. 773-728-7243)—open until 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday—where you can refuel with house-made sausages.
