Maplewood Brewery & Distillery
Maplewood Brewery & Distillery was started by two home brewers and distillers whose hobbies spiraled into a passion. Starting with 5 gallon batches, Adam and Ari slowly stepped up their game over an 8-year period. Now, they're brewing on a 10 BBL steam-powered brewhouse, and they're distilling on a 250L Kothe column still. They aim to bridge the gap between the craft beer and spirits worlds. The name Maplewood was chosen in honor of the former village of Maplewood, where the brewery/distillery is located. The Village of Maplewood was one of the outlying towns that survived the Great Chicago Fire, and its residents, largely immigrant builders, aided in the rebuilding of the city. The Maplewood are as eventually annexed by Chicago in 1889 to form the Logan Square neighborhood, which we think is pretty great.
