Goose Island Beer Co
1800 W Fulton St
Chicago IL 60612
Phone: 312-226-1119  

Opened in 1995, the Goose Island Fulton Street Brewery occupies over 37,000 square feet. Inside, stainless steel kettles and fermenting tanks dwarf the team of brewers who oversee the production of twelve different varieties of Goose Island beer and two craft sodas. Brewmaster Greg Hall (Founder John Hall’s son) leads the brewing team, all of whom attended the prestigious United States Brewers Academy at the Siebel Institute of Technology in Chicago. The team precisely combines the traditional ingredients of malted barley, hops, yeast and water to create its award winning ales. Adjacent to the brewhouse, the state of the art, high speed bottling line fills ten cases (240 bottles) per minute with such celebrated beers as Hex Nut Brown Ale, and Wolaver’s Pale Ale. Because no preservatives are used in the process and the beer is not pasteurized, Goose Island puts a freshness date on all of its products.

Two Brothers Brewing Co
30 W 114 Butterfield Rd
Warrenville IL 60555
Phone: 630-393-4800 
Two Brothers Brewing Company was founded by Jim and Jason Ebel in late 1996.  The business was envisioned by the brothers based on their entry into entrepreneurship with The Brewer’s Coop, a retail store catering to home beer and wine making.  In 1993 The Brewer’s Coop opened its doors in Naperville, IL selling retail ingredients and equipment for the homebrewing community.  The more they were surrounded by brewing, the more passionate they became about opening their own microbrewery.  In early 1996 they decided to take the plunge and start writing a business plan.  Several months later their dream became reality.  Two Brothers Brewing Company is still 100% family owned.
