With so many new breweries popping up all over the Chicagoland area in every size and shape, it’s damn near impossible to keep track of them all. In Chicago, brewers are moving into neighborhoods like Little Village and the South Loop, while the suburbs aren’t slacking in growth—Geneva, Tinley Park, Lyons and Northbrook all have brewery projects rolling out or in the process of starting up. Lots of them are tweeting their progress, so we've included links to their Twitter feeds to follow along.


Here’s a look at some of the breweries we’re excited to see pouring soon.
