Beerhead Bar & Eatery
Tasty eats and a prodigious selection of beers in downtown Elmhurst
Beerhead Bar & Eatery, 100 N York St., Elmhurst (630 433-2337), opened in April as the fast-growing restaurant group’s fourth local outlet. Other branches in the vicinity include Vernon Hills, Schaumburg and Bolingbrook
“We also have a presence in Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Rochester, New York,” says general manager Matt Krause.
Krause says the Elmhurst site seats about 120, plus more outside on a seasonal patio. Its beverage service includes wine and cocktails. But the place is especially known for its prodigious inventory of craft beer — including 50 on draft and 400 to 500 in bottles and cans.
Diners have multiple options, including the Elmhurst Chicken Salad sandwich, Cowboy Chili and several pizza iterations. There are ample choices for vegetarians, including a Super Food Salad, with kale Brussels sprouts, and toasted pecans. Krause says a favorite among diners is the fresh-baked pretzel roll, ample to feed four. It comes sprinked with sea salt and witha dark ale-mustard dip and New Belgium craft beer cheese.
Beerhead is open from Sunday to Thursday 11 a.m. to midnight, and weekends 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.Edit Module
