IRVING PARK — After blowing by a couple of previously announced deadlines, BreakRoom Brewery has announced it's opening to the public on Tuesday.

Friends and family have been putting the brewpub's kitchen and bar staff through their paces the past couple of days. Members of the BreakRoom International Club, which costs $250 to join but clearly has its privileges, were treated to a private preview this weekend.

Here's what to expect come Tuesday:

The beer: BreakRoom is the only place to find BreakRoom brews. Though the brewpub has the capacity to have more than 10 of its beers on tap at once, there will be five at the outset. The initial lineup is heavy on pale ales (including American, Imperial and Rye varieties) along with a lone American brown porter.

Head brewer Matt Pallen has decamped to SlapShot Brewing and has been replaced by Eric Padilla.

The food: The menu (not yet available online) is a definite notch above pub grub. Appetizers and salads include a Scotch egg, mussels, lamb scrumpets and pan-fried beet. Pork shank, trout and a $32 rib-eye steak are among the entrees. There's also a burger that can be topped with triple cream brie or liver mousse for an extra two bucks.

The boozy desserts include a boilermaker panna cotta and a house-made root beer float where the soda pop can be swapped out for stout.

A separate kids menu comes with crayons for youngsters to color in their order.

BreakRoom Brewery is located at 2925 W. Montrose Ave.

Following Tuesday's opening, regular hours will be: 4 p.m. to midnight Monday through Thursday, 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. to midnight Sunday.
