Chicago and Illinois brewing has exploded, notably since 2011. It's a story of supporting local businesses, community, and a love of very great beer. The stories in this video are from breweries of all sizes and types - most of which started small and have found success. The Illinois Craft Brewers Guild has produced videos like this in the past, but this one might be my favorite.
Enjoy "A State of Growth - An Illinois Beer Story" and then enjoy the beer they make -- cheers!
