We have been consistently impressed with everything Chris makes at Exit Strategy in Forest Park, and the guys at Alter have made fantastic beers, as has Paul at Noon Whistle in Lombard.
Honestly there are so many great microbreweries nearby, too many to mention, but now it’s time for Elmhurst to have our own!
Oak Park didn’t want us as they have 4 microbreweries, and Hinsdale only wants wine bars, so here we are! Just kidding – we are both long-time Elmhurst residents, have raised our children here, and we want to stay here and enjoy the growth of our great community.
And provide something Elmhurst doesn’t have, but should.
The Elmhurst Brewing Company was created to meet the rapidly-growing demand for local, high-quality craft beer that the country, the state of Illinois, and our neighboring suburbs have been seeing for the last few years.
With the Chicago success stories of Goose Island, Revolution Brewing, and Half Acre, and the western suburban successes of Two Brothers and many more, we feel Elmhurst is overdue for its own microbrewery.
As two experienced business owners who live in Elmhurst and are dedicated to our community, we are committed to building and operating a successful family-friendly destination for the enjoyment of craft beer.
Our mission is to become a source of pride for Elmhurst residents by building a preferred destination for both families and craft beer drinkers to eat, drink, and socialize within their community, and to do so with the best ingredients and constantly-changing styles and types of beer offerings.
