Complete List of Chicago Breweries (2024 Guide)

Jim McCormickAuthor

Guide to the Best Chicago Breweries to Try 

The growth brewery industry has quickly gained momentum as craft beers have become more popularized since the early 2000’s. Since then, brewery volume has grown steadily with nearly 9,000 breweries in operation in the U.S. (that’s up from just 1,400 in 2006). Brewery-hopping and craft beer trading have become hobbies in American cities, attracting crowds of beer connoisseurs to breweries around the world to try exclusive batches.

Chicago, renowned for its rich restaurant scene, has seen a corresponding growth in breweries, paralleling the nationwide trend of increasing brewery popularity. Chicago's younger population and craft beer culture has rapidly expanded, catering to a rising demand for locally brewed craft beers. 

The city’s flourishing brewery scene offers a diverse selection of innovative brews and also fosters a sense of community, with breweries serving as gathering spots for locals and visitors alike. To make easy access to all of the city’s breweries, Toast collected a complete list of breweries in Chicago, for you to consider when you are planning your next Saturday outing.
