Finely Crafted Beer & Spirits, Since 2014

BREWPROJ BREW1540 Facebook Export 2

Maplewood opened with the mission to push liquid boundaries in an unassuming building nestled in Chicago’s historic Logan Square neighborhood.

Our Story

The first of its kind to establish brewing and distilling roots under a single roof, Maplewood has been producing finely crafted beer and spirits out of their 10BBL brewhouse and 250L Kothe hybrid still since 2014. Three years after moving into their production facility, Maplewood opened the Lounge, a neighborhood bar doubling as a taproom and cocktail parlor. Beginning with distribution throughout Illinois, Maplewood has since expanded their footprint to Missouri, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Kansas. Maplewood’s fans have come to expect expertly crafted beer and spirits in a wide range of styles.
