Established in 2017, Urban Renewal Brewery is a craft brewery serving Ravenswood area patrons with locally inspired beer brewed with the utmost attention to detail.
With over 12 years of professional brewing experience, our co-founder and brewer, James is excited to be producing beers desired by consumers fueled with local inspiration.
Having a passion to brew a diverse array of beers using traditional ingredients and processes, our beers are sure to capture the timid beer drinkers while satisfying the most experienced craft beer drinkers.
Urban Renewal's beers are produced on an Allied Beverage 15bbl two vessel steam brewhouse. Each batch will produce 465 gallons of wort. We have four 30bbl fermenters capable of fermenting 930 gallons each. Initially our capacity will be around 2,500 barrels per year.
Our bottle shop is now open! Within our shop, we offer an opportunity to sample our beers, tour the brewery, and walk out with cans or growlers of any beer we currently have available. The selection is always rotating so please be sure to check-in frequently. In addition to offering beer to go, we also have a wide selection of merchandise from us and our partnering vendors. We look forward to showing you the space!
We have a wide arrange of styles of craft beer available from our Kiss Kolsch to Orion's Milk Stout. Having New England roots, we paid tribute to Massachusetts with Packy, our New England IPA. All beers are available in 16oz. cans as well as draft throughout Chicago. Come by the brewery bottle shop/retail store in the heart of Ravenswood to pick up some cans or a growler of your favorite brews.
We believe our core beers should be determined organically rather than telling our customers what we want them to drink. Our beer lineup is designed to be ever-changing, allowing the consumer to help us determine which beers will make a repeat appearance.
