Chicago Area Breweries

Chicago's brewing scene continues to expand at a rapid pace. As far as we are aware, there are now 42 active breweries in the Chicago area, comprising 21 production breweries and 21 brewpubs. Our criteria is as follows:

  • We only count actual, physical breweries with their own brewing kit and brewing commercially within the Chicago area.

  • Where two or more brewing companies share one brewing kit, we count this as one brewery but show both companies separately in the listings.

  • This page is a continual work in progress as we get information about new Chicago breweries virtually every week. With the current pace of change it's very hard to keep up to date, so if you are aware of any other breweries within the Amsterdam area that are brewing commercially on their own kit then please let us know.
