No local bar’s drink list can match the sheer diversity of tipples that are slung daily along Malt Row in Ravenswood. Just choose a path — along Damen, Ravenswood, or Bowmanville Avenue — and start sipping. It’s all there. Beer gardens. Wine makers. Distilleries. Tap rooms. The choices are buzz inducing. Sample whiskey flights inside Koval Distillery’s chic new tasting room. Pair botanical and barrel-aged beers (think strawberry-basil hefeweizens or oak-smoked wheat beers) with bar snacks at Cultivate by Forbidden Root. Or learn about local wild yeasts and open fermentation via a tour of Dovetail Brewery. You can walk all those pesky carbs off by strolling tree-lined brick streets or shopping for art and antiques in historic buildings once used by engravers, typesetters, and musical-instrument makers. The result is a true “craft” bar crawl where the scenery is just as sumptuous as the suds. ravenswoodchicago.‌org/neighborhood/malt-row
