Scorched Earth Brewing

The namesake of the brewery was initially forged by our interest to claim a name that truly represented the land and its history. Years before Illinois was settled, much of it was covered by vast swaths of prairie grasses. Uninspired by pictures of prairies alone, we dug deeper. Our research took us to stories about and images of prairie fires, some of which were ignited by terrible forces of nature and truly destructive, others that were purposefully started. The event and their aftermath inspired us. While the fire essentially wiped out an ecosystem, it also provided a new beginning for greater growth, diversity, and creativity - a fresh start. Scorched Earth symbolizes this for us in so many ways. More than anything, though, it represents a blank canvas to create a unique and diverse portfolio of beers, and experiences for you and for us.
