  • Mid Oak Distillery
    Before opening Mid Oak Distillery, Matt Altman studied ancient Russian methods of vodka production. These studies inspired Altman to christen his vodka "CD" after "Catherine's Dynasty," translated from the original Russian Catalina Dynastii, which refers to the reign of Catherine the Great. At Mid Oak Distillery, Altman reprises the royal recipe with local ingredients: Illinois grains, Glenview bottles, and tags from Oak Forest. Distillers cork the bottles by hand, seal them with heat, and adorn their necks with tags that denote alcohol content and recent immunizations. Altman even chose to have local contractors build the tasting room. Within its recently expanded 3,000-square-foot space, Mid Oak Distillery serves up vodka drinks made from a lineup of traditional, seasonal, and flavored varieties of meticulously crafted CD Vodka.

  • Tailwinds Distilling Company
    When he wasn’t piloting a plane, Toby Beall spent time with his bare feet in the Caribbean sand and a cocktail mellowing in his hand. Looking to share that laid-back lifestyle, Beall, his wife Jillian and brother Jamey founded Tailwinds Distilling Company. Today, the Plainfield-based specialists blend premium ingredients such as organic molasses and 100% blue agave, and carefully age them in french-oak barrels to create their tropically-inspired amber rum. After the signature, small-batch distilling process—which avoids the use of carbon filters so as to leave the flavors intact—each bottle is individually signed. That attention to detail hasn’t gone unnoticed: their Taildragger white rum earned a silver medal at the 2012 Ministry of Rum Tasting Competition, and their 100% blue agave spirit was featured in Chicago Magazine's Holiday 2012 Gift Guide: For Imbibers. Visitors can take a jetlag-free trip to the tropics during tours of the facility, learning about distillation and sampling sips in a tiki-bar-themed tasting room. Merchandise such as T-shirts, snifters, and flasks provide more lasting souvenirs than the imaginary tan the island vibe might inspire.

  • Bulldog Brewery
    Bulldog Brewery was born out of steelworker Kevin Clark's home brewing hobby. But founding his own brewery didn't mean Kevin was ready to quit his day job. And neither have co-owners, Bob Fausto and Jeff Kochis, a steelworker and a second-generation firefighter respectively. The hard work required of having two jobs is in keeping with the brewery's mission: to celebrate small town America and the blue collar workers who live there. One of the ways they achieve this goal is by providing a place for customers to relax after a hard day's work, whether it's with a grilled panini sandwich or a pint of flavorful lager, stout, or IPA. Their beer also celebrates the working man. The 1890 Stout, for instance, commemorates the year that oil refineries came to Whiting. Its dark, crude-like color conceals notes of vanilla bean and cherry, and it's best consumed while wearing an oil can jauntily perched upon your head.

  • Summer Solstice 2013
    Visitors have an unusual transportation option for getting to Summer Solstice: if they get an early enough start, they can float up to the day of craft beer and concerts by canoe. As the Fox River ambles past the historic buildings of downtown Yorkville, it deposits a flotilla of revelers in Riverfront Park. Those who don’t want to paddle in are also allowed to arrive on foot or palanquin to enjoy the rootsy music and frosty brews of the fest, a collaboration between Rogue Barrister Records, Three Angels Brewing, and the Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce.

  • Piece Brewery & Pizzeria
    In a spacious and bustling loft space, Piece's doughsmiths twirl crispy New Haven–style thin-crust pizzas to pair with house-crafted microbrews. A triad of pizza bases—red, white, and mozzarella-free plain—balance premium ingredients better than Italy's top runway models, with toppings that include mashed potatoes, clams, and ricotta cheese. Led by brewmaster Jonathan Cutler, Piece concocts award-winning beers, such as the rye-based Worryin Ale or the Top Heavy Hefeweizen, in gleaming silver vats next door to the dining room. Parties can intersperse crispy bites with raucous cheers as they watch one of 11 46-inch plasma TVs, which punctuate the walls with the soft glow of sports games or documentaries about uranium. Amateur vocal cords strut their stuff during standard karaoke on Thursday nights, as well as live-band karaoke on Saturday nights.

  • Horse Thief Hollow
    Five Things to Know About Horse Thief Hollow Horse Thief Hollow is a relative newcomer to both Beverly and the ongoing, on-growing conversation about beer in Chicago, but its reputation and staff have grown quickly. Founded in 2013 by Neil Byers, the company has created many jobs and delicious evenings of drinking for local residents. It’s also created a stir in national and international competitions. Read on to learn more about this South Side establishment: This a full craft brewery: Horse Thief Hollow’s line of craft beers includes three staple beverages, along with a rotation of limited-edition beers. One of their flagship brews, 18th Rebellion, is a German Kölsch-style wheat ale. Unlike some other wheat ales, this still features plenty of hops for a bright, peppery finish, a nice followup to the citrusy body. It’s also a restaurant: This far South Side brewery puts a lot of craft into everything it does, including its food menu. A great example of this: the housemade spent-grain pretzels. These salty, malty bites come from the brewery’s own spent grain and are served warm and soft with a side of roasted-poblano queso. You should check out the walls. The owner partners with the Beverly Arts Alliance to find and showcase works from local artists. You don’t have to take their word on the quality. Beer, like so much in life, can be a subjective experience, but there are objective measures of quality. Just ask the judges from the 2014 World Beer Cup, who awarded Horse Thief’s Cheval Deux a silver medal in the Field Beer category. The limited-edition beverage infused sugary sweet potato into a French brown ale, a combination that beat out more than 50 other entries from all over the world. Good beer is good business. Founder Neil Byers won the 2015 James Tyree Award, given to especially fast-growing business that are good for the local economy. It comes with a $25,000 grant, which Tyree plans to use to expand his operation. He’s already created 40 new jobs, and now seeks to expand his facilities even further.
