Edible ingenuity. Liquid innovation.
Welcome to Chicago’s Moxee Restaurant & Mad Mouse Brewery where we weave together the best traditions of American cooking with small-batch brewery and craft cocktail bar.
Our menu is an ongoing love letter to America featuring a Moxee spin on dishes we’ve enjoyed through many years of cooking and traveling. You can expect powerful flavors of the American south as well as highlights from regions throughout America.
Our smokehouse uses only local, green, hickory wood to smoke our succulent baby back ribs, farm-fresh chicken, beef brisket and pork shoulder to serve you authentic, low and slow barbecue. We also produce our own specialty meats such as bourbon-cured pork belly, beef pastrami, cider-brined turkey and smoked salmon to name a few.
Mad Mouse Brewery is a small, experimental Chicago brewery that concocts unique specialty beer in 3.5 barrel batches. Our recipes are developed and executed by our resident brewer, Phillip Zelewsky.
The bar menu includes a rotating selection of the world’s finest beers on 24 taps, an array of carefully selected wines, and top-notch classic and contemporary craft cocktails.
Moxee is located at 724 Maxwell Street just west of Halsted Street, south of UIC campus and Taylor Street. We are just minutes from Chicago’s Loop, Pilsen, Greektown, and Taylor Street, and a nice stroll from the UIC campus.
