One of Chicagoland’s early craft brewing pioneers.

We brew a wide variety of both year-round ales and lagers, along with an ever-changing lineup of seasonals. Sample our brews at one of our two pubs in Lake Barrington and Oak Park.

Since firing up our first batch of Paddy Pale Ale back in 1996, the Wild Onion Brewery has strived to brew the best damn beer you’ll ever drink. We have been in a perpetual state of expansion, it seems, and just finished the crown jewel of our production facility with a new 50 barrel brew house, housed in a 5,000 square foot addition. Our existing 17 barrel brewery will allow us to brew inspirational “one-offs” and other R&D for new styles, while the new brewhouse will help us keep up with the demand from our growing customer base.
