"We are focusing a lot on the vegetarian and vegan side," said Carlos Cruz, executive chef.

The brewery also works to support charities in several ways. Merchandise sales support Green City Market. The brewery also has a "love tap."

"Every beer bought on that tap, we donate a dollar," said Brian Krajack, director of operations.

You can visit Cultivate by Forbidden Root at 4710 North Ravenswood Avenue.
