"In the beginning, nobody knew how to do this. And it wasn’t like you could just go to a book. You had to rely on the people around you.
We share ingredients, we share yeast. This is why we haven't had to buy yeast very often. I go to Revolution to get it. They're actively giving a crucial raw ingredient to a competitor. Three Floyds has given away yeast forever, Goose Island gave away yeast forever. We give our lactobacillus culture away. In any other business, that wouldn’t fly, but here, it still works."

Greetings all! Our goal is to save the Standard Brewing Tied House at 3801 W. Grand Ave by making it the home of the Chicago Brewing Museum, a venue to showcase the Windy City's rich history and diverse legacy of brewing Beer.

We hope to soon begin raising funds for this project through Kickstarter and other means to make necessary repairs to the building, as well as to collect items and design exhibits for the Chicago Brewing Museum.

Besides exhibits, our plan is to have an educational component for the museum as well, offering a robust season of events, lectures, and tours of Chicago’s multiethnic brewing heritage, past and present.

Cheers! Prost! Na zdravi! Sláinte! Egészségére! Cin-Cin! Skol! Salud! Tchin! Proost! Будьмо! Skål! Saude! Na zdrowie!
