Lake Bluff Brewing Company started as a concept in the winter of 2009 while homebrewing in Rodd’s Lake Bluff, Illinois kitchen. Scotch Ale was the style that night, and an IPA, a Bourbon Stout and a Pilsner soon followed. The more we brewed, the more passionate we became about starting our own brewery. Soon the demand for our beer among friends, family and neighbors became overwhelming and Lake Bluff Brewing Company was born.
Lake Bluff Brewing Company is a small craft brewery devoted to upholding the lofty standards of quality craft beer being produced by so many fine Chicagoland microbreweries. We strive to create the finest beer available while minding the rich traditions of the brewing craft with a company that embraces the ideals of the close knit community of our beloved hometown.
