was founded by three lifelong friends who share a passion for great beer and company. Now, we want to share this passion with you.
Our idea started in 2011 when Brewmaster, Paul Kreiner, enrolled at the Siebel Institute - taking his first step into professional brewing. Paul had been in the beer industry working for a Chicagoland distributer for 7 years, but knew his real passion was in brewing. This first step immediately solidified Paul's passion for brewing and fueled his dream to turn his award-winning home brewing into a profession in his own brewery. Paul brings a passion for creative, distinctive beers and adventurous brewing that you can taste for yourself.
Mike Condon is in sales, which coincidentally makes him a pretty good beer drinker. His professional sales career has him going to every end of this country and along the way sampling as many new and exciting beers from local brewers as often as he can. However, he still thinks the best place for quality craft is right here in Lombard, IL (he may be a little biased though).
Jim Cagle handles the boring stuff: bills, taxes, budgets, etc. Exciting, right? No worries. Jim loves spreadsheets almost as much as great beer.
