Learn More About Us

Who are we?

Urban Renewal Brewery will be Chicago's newest Craft Brewery serving the 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 produce 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 will be sure to capture the timid craft beer drinkers while satisfying the most experienced beer drinkers.   

Our Facility

Having previously been a Craft Brewery for the last nine years producing great beer, we are excited to carry the torch that has been passed onto us.

Urban Renewal's beers will be produced on an Allied Beverage 15bbl two vessel steam brewhouse.  Each batch will produce 465 gallons of wort.  We will be starting off with four 30bbl fermenters capable of fermenting 930 gallons each.  Initially our capacity will be around 2,500 barrels per year.

Underway is the construction of an 800 square foot tasting room capable of seating 31 patrons.  We will serve the freshest beer available via our 10 taps.  Our tasting room provides an opportunity to listen to our consumers and continually craft our portfolio to better serve the neighborhood. 

Our Beers

Our KiSs Kölsch and Razed IPA will be available in 16oz. cans and on draught as our initial offerings throughout the Chicago area.  All of our beers will be eventually served within our tasting room upon completion.  For those looking to bring fresh beer home, grab a 32 fl.oz. Crowlers or 64 fl.oz. Growler.  

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.
