A new brewery is coming to Northern Illinois in Spring Grove. Pratt Brewing Co. will be offering beer releases to the public for local pick-up at our Spring Grove brewery. Pick-ups will be available on a first-come, first-served basis only. While they wait for state approvals, all of their award-winning beers will be available for distribution and retail sale only, with a future taproom opening date to be announced at a later date.
Pratt Brewing Company sparked as an interest, which has been forged into a passion. The Pratts, currently work in Spring Grove, IL at the local forge shop, Scot Forge, where they also met. Like many, they had an interest in craft beer and soon wanted to try thier hand at homebrewing. It all started with a for-fun, something-to-learn-together, brewing class using the setup provided by their kitchen stove, in 2017.
Since then, they have been developing several signature beers, expanding their equipment beyond the stove, and experimenting using all the fun science that comes with the craft of brewing. This work has inspired them to open a brewery featuring and future taproom with a rotation of thier latest drafts.
Staying local was crucial to them. The Spring Grove community is not only where the couple works but where they spend their lives and have grown a family. They knew this was the only place to begin to grow a beer business.
