SMALL TOWN, BIG FLAVOR

Legend has it Wauconda, Illinois, was named for a Native American chief whose name translated to “Spirit Water.” Today, it’s home to America’s favorite flavored craft brewery. That’s what we call fate.

We invite you stop by the Small Town Brewery – whether you’re around the corner or across the country. Here, you’ll feel like you’re receiving the VIP treatment.  In addition to the Small Town brews you can find in store, you’ll have access to brews available nowhere else. If you’re lucky, Tim may even pour you a pint while telling you the story behind the inspiration for his latest brew.

And our brews are so good, they’re likely to get you craving a juicy burger or big slice of pizza. Even though we don’t serve food, we know all the best spots in town and will be more than happy to hook you up with delivery right to the brewery. We’ll even find the brew that pairs perfectly with whatever you’re eating. And although our craft beers remind you of the good ol’ days, you do have to be at least 21 years of age to visit us.
