Each microbrewer brings a different style to the tap, all quirky and refreshing in their own way. Beer lovers will assure you that DuPage County’s reputation as a hotbed of craft brewing is entirely justified. You will undoubtedly find beers that you will want to drink more than once -- and in more than one season.

Adam Hoockzo of Alter Brewing Company states, “There is so much artistry happening in the craft beer world, that the emphasis has been put on the full experience of tasting the beer. There is always something new and exciting to try.” Another perspective of the industry from Chet Brett of Church Street Brewing Company, “It has almost gotten to the point where breweries are the modern country club.”
