Back in 1996 when Two Brothers Brewing opened there were just a handful of breweries operating in the Chicagoland area and three closed within two months of Jason and Jim Ebel starting the brewery.
For over two decades, Two Brothers Brewing Company has been making solid beer and is a mainstay in the Chicago beer scene. Just recently, they added a new year-round beer to their rotation as well as two seasonal/limited releases.
Two Brothers Brewing champions family, community, and craft culture and The Craftsman location exemplifies that philosophy. Jason and Jim Ebel — the brothers behind the name — recently opened their new tri-level establishment in the Chicago suburb of Naperville. At every turn, one can find examples of artisanship and skill — two indispensable facets of craft culture. Two Brothers repurposed and transformed a historic building that now provides its multi-award winning beer along with its own brand of coffee, made-from-scratch pastries, bread, dinner and brunch, wine, mixology and crafted distilling.
Two Brothers Artisan Brewing has released the newest beer in the In the Flesh series.

The latest beer is re-fermented with real blueberries and is available in stores now.

Founders and New Belgium are the two biggest new names in the state, but we are also starting to see some smaller breweries, such as Two Brothers. The Sidekick is the first beer I’ve tried from them.
Hey America, Summer has definitely arrived. Clearly, we here at PD promote porch (outdoor) imbibing. However, it doesn’t matter what region you’re in right now, melting in humidity or frying in the desert, it’s HOT out there. I found myself at a beer fest the other day where I was sipping ice cold sangria (gasp!) There was just no perfectly refreshing summer beer available to help beat the scorching heat. Which brings us to my Ultimate 6er for a hot-as-hell summer.
