At Centennial, our passion is craft beer and our focus is simple: to celebrate craft beer. Beer can bring people together on a common ground and has the ability to create a community. Beer can elevate food. Beer is culture.

We feature 56 taps with a selection of 36 rotating craft beers. In addition to our taps, we feature a high volume of beers available in bottles and cans, as well as a curated selection of craft spirits and wines.

Centennial also features chef-driven food with an emphasis on craft beer. The menu focuses on beer pairings and incorporating beer as an ingredient. Centennial also features a house made charcuterie program in addition to a menu with emphasis on smoked, char grilled, and wood-fired ingredients.

Great spot with a really well-curated draft and can/bottle list. Picked this spot primarily to try some Hop Butcher beers and wasn’t disappointed! Servers were very attentive and knowledgeable about the beers.

Went on a date here. Beer list was good and extensive. I ordered the butter or squash salad and couldn’t even eat it because the leafs used were so bitter. My date ordered the pretzel loaf, which is more mini bread loaf than pretzel. The beer, ambiance, and service was good. I’d go back, but maybe get a handheld or main instead.

The atmosphere is fantastic! Quiet (at the time) little place with delicious brunch and lunch options. It was so good I ended up returning that same night for drinks!

Affordable. Only real complaint is they shouldn’t allow reservations so close to the time when their kitchen closes.

Came here for the vast selection of beer, but will return for many more reasons. Our bartender, Chris was very knowledgeable in his tasty recommendations. We ordered the spicy steak skewers, and they did not disappoint.

We tried this spot for the first time recently and were disappointed. Simply put, our food was NOT good. We sent two dishes back, and the ones we did eat were mediocre at best. They have a wide selection of beers on tap, but nothing remarkable. (The beers I had were just OK.) The fact that the restaurant opens out onto the street was pleasant, and the overall design is nice, but this is not a place we would return to.

The food at Centennial was fantastic! I and some girlfriends went there for Sunday brunch and were incredibly impressed with the quality and the value of the menu. We sat outside and had some issues with our meals not coming out at the same time, but perhaps it was a slower Sunday for all. In any case, would definitely be back!

Not bad, the brunch menu could be a little bit longer. But for the price it's worth it.

Waitress didn’t seem like she wanted to be there and was more engaged with other tables. Also didn’t write down our order so at least twice had to ask us again what we ordered.

Went with work colleague. Outstanding beer selection, they offer flights of 4 different beers if you want to sample. Food served with a twist - pulled pork sandwich comes with kimchee, not cole slaw, on top.

The food was one of main reasons we chose this restaurant. We were not disappointed! The staff was knowledgeable about the menu and offered suggestions. The beer selection was almost overwhelming! We chose 2 flights. We loved every one of the beers in the flight. The only criticism we had was that the charcuterie board was a tad smaller than ones we are used to for the price
But the quality was outstanding! We will recommend and return!

They were amazing at accommodating our large group of 18 on a busy Saturday night. Excellent service. They have an excellent selection of beers. Food is pretty good as well. If you're looking for a good place for large groups and excellent service, Centennial is the place to be.

We love Centennial, particularly the service we receive from Chris. We’ve had dinner and brunch there, and everything has been exceptional. In particular the Bloody Mary at brunch is spectacular! We are happy to have quickly become regulars!

Great beer selection, gastropub eats, staff went out of the way to accommodate us. We got there way before our reservation and brought twice as many people so they opened and staffed the upstairs just for us - awesome. And this place is a cool casual hangout - great vibe.

We did not eat food, we were sampling different beers. But the service and selection were excellent.

I believe our server was Tony, and he was knowledgeable and friendly - the type of person you want to help you through a menu of drinks never tried before.

I would definitely be back next time in Chicago.

Centennial has been consistent on each visit, whether for dinner, brunch, or late night drinks. The staff has been friendly and helpful every time. Centennial is high on my list when i’m trying to decide where to eat when i’m in the Loop.

Good happy hour, with two great beers to choose from! Worth ordering the house chips and cheese drip to go along with the beer. Overall enjoyed the experience. Very cool setting, but sadly the host placed us extremely close to another party despite having the entire dining room devoid of other folks..bit of a tight squeeze that dampened the experience a bit along with lack of attentiveness closing out.

Again, worth the visit regardless.
