About Argus Brewery
The building that houses Argus Brewery was once a horse stable. But not just any horse stable—the distribution stables of Chicago’s historic Joseph E. Schlitz, of Schlitz beer fame, where the Schlitz horse teams and carriages resided in the early 1900s. Today, two large terra-cotta horse heads on the building’s parapet pay homage to the building’s origins. Inside, instead of horses, there’s craft beer created by father and son and three-legged-race partners Bob and Patrick Jensen, who have worked tirelessly to perfect their sudsy creations. Along with hard work, they bring their South Side pride and attitude to making each premium craft beer, which they feel is reflected in the unique flavor, depth, and unapologetic bravado of each brew.
