About the Breweries

GOOSE ISLAND has become synonymous with Chicago beer. Founder John Hall helped set off the craft beer craze when he started Goose Island in 1988. They continue to be guided by their respect for the history and culture of beer as well as a passion for, and innovation in, brewing.

METROPOLITAN was founded by Doug and Tracy Hurst. They began brewing German style lagers in 2009, and have since moved to the forefront of the Chicago Brewing scene. Enjoy their refreshing brews at their amazing location with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the North Branch of the Chicago River.

REVOLUTION is the largest independent brewery in Chicago. In a very short time, they have become a leader and innovator in the industry. The evolving tastes of beer drinkers has demanded bigger flavors, more variety, and better beer. That’s exactly what they give you at Revolution Brewing.
