Rick Bayless has joined the beer game and opened a 10-barrel brewery to Cruz Blanca Cerveceria,  900 West Randolph Street in the West Loop. Guests can sample craft beers and enjoy in a tasting room or the dining area. A growler program offers large bottles for sale.  The taqueria offers menu items inspired from "smoke alley" of Oaxaca's Mercado 20 de Noviembre giving food a smokier taste in the wood-grilled meats.  Choose a protein of either half-cured flank, rec chile pork cecina, chorizo, chicken or portobello. Tortillas are homemade daily.
