Summer 2018 Event
Hosted by Elmhurst Brewing Company
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; Elmhurst was overdue for its own microbrewery.
With two experienced business owners who live in Elmhurst, they are dedicated to community, and committed to building and operating a successful family-friendly destination for the enjoyment of craft beer.
Their 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.Elmhurst Brewing Company Facebook page.
