Church Street Brewing Company

Old World Brewing Done Chicago Suburban Style

Located in Itasca, Illinois (just 10 miles west of Chicago), Church Street Brewing Company is a new craft brewery that has quickly grown into a reputable name in the Chicago area. Owners Joe and Lisa Gregor use traditional German brewing methods to craft their wide range of lagers and ales that represent both old and new beer styles of European influence. The Gregors are churning out approachable, award-winning beers and continuing to grow their brewery's ever-expanding footprint in the region. We are a family business built on a dream to make quality ales and lagers that stand out from the crowd. Along with our great beers, we're committed to expanding the knowledge of all who come through our doors by providing excellent (and free!) tours that not only let our patrons learn a little more about us, but also about the process of making beer itself. All are welcome! In a visit to Church Street you can expect a welcoming atmosphere, met with great beer, and great conversation.

Heavenly Helles

ABV 5.4% IBU 20 SRM 6
One of Germany’s quintessential beverages, now in Chicagoland. Utilizing old world decoction mashing techniques for a truly unique sweet malt character, this gentle drink also features a straw colored-clarity that’s clearly heavenly.

Continental Lager

ABV 5.3% IBU 39 SRM 7
Brewed to eliminate Gluten! Smooth and drinkable, yet malty and complex with a noble hop kick. Four German malts with three German hop varieties combine to create our quintessential pilsner. Notes of biscuit and grassy/floral hops make this a great beer to kick back with anytime. Enjoy!

Shony Scottish Ale

ABV 5.1% IBU 32 SRM 24
In centuries past, to ensure a plentiful crop, the Celts would donate a variety of malts for a community ale to please the Shony, a local water spirit. Sadly, the custom dictated that they throw it all in the ocean. Our traditional 80 Shilling Scottish-style ale is a robust brew with notes of sweet caramel and mellow roast – best enjoyed on land, not in the ocean.

Brimstone IPA

ABV 6.8% IBU 80 SRM 12
Church Street is proud to present our take on the American IPA with this dry-hopped West Coast IPA that’s brimming with Cascade aroma, giving this tangerine-beauty a fruity and refreshing nose – don’t be surprised if you find yourself sniffing more than sipping! A bold bitterness is rounded out by notes of citrus and grapefruit and a slightly dry hoppy finish. Cheers!

Lubelskie Polish Pilsner

ABV 4.6% IBU 18 SRM 3

Devil’s Advocate

ABV 8.8% IBU 27 SRM 8
Devil’s Advocate begs the question: What happens when you take a ton (literally) of Pilsen malt, put it through a decoction mash, boil it up, add another 500 lbs of Belgian candy and kane sugar, and then add some of Duvel’s world famous yeast? The answer: A spicy, sweet, and dangerously drinkable Belgian golden strong ale.

Crimson Clover Red Irish Ale

ABV 5.5% IBU 38 SRM 34

ABV 6.5% IBU 22 SRM 7
A golden, medium-bodied bock. This Weyermann-malted, double-decoction-mashed traditional German maibock features subtle hints of toast and caramel from carahell and dark Munich malts and a strawberry-like sweetness from the extended boiling of the malt. Featuring three different German hops varieties to ensure a complex, full character.
