Microbreweries, or craft breweries, are trending in destinations across the nation and DuPage County is among them. There are more breweries in the US now than there were at any other time, and new locations are continuing to pop up around Chicagoland. DuPage's diverse and affluent community, green spaces, and sustainability efforts provide an ideal setting for craft breweries. 

What makes craft breweries unique? 

The craft beer market puts an emphasis on supporting local and providing a beer-tasting, beer-learning experience rather than simply enjoying a drink. 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.” Many local breweries host trivia nights, yoga events, food trucks and paint nights to encourage people to really engage in a comfortable atmosphere. “It has almost gotten to the point where breweries are the modern country club,” said Chet Brett of Church Street Brewing Company.     

Check out the sampling below for a glimpse into DuPage County’s craft beer industry.
