Chicagos.Beer Profile Limited Demo - Breakroom Brewery

Chicago, IL – Chicagos.Beer announces the launch of its interactive Illinois brewery directory. The first of its kind on the market, Chicagos.Beer solves the frustrations of craft beer fans when trying to easily find established and new local breweries organized in one place. The craft beer industry is exploding in Illinois and now includes nearly 200 distinct breweries. New breweries are opening on a regular basis and Chicagos.Beer is on top of it.

“Companies like Yelp, Google, and Foursquare make brewery lists, but they aren’t useful. Their lists are inaccurate, and miss out on dozens of great new breweries, not to mention what a pain they are to work with for users. There are other beer apps and brewery maps too, but they are incomplete or cumbersome. We think we’ve figured it out with Chicagos.Beer. Finding that next great brewery at the touch of a button has never been so easy.”  – Joel Gratcyk (Co-Founder)

Users can find locations, hours, amenities, photo galleries and much more at the touch of a button from their mobile devices and home computers:

  • Does this brewery serve food?
  • Are tours available at this location?
  • Is this brewery kid friendly?

“We came up with the idea of the visual directory out of frustration from spending endless hours pouring over blogs, social media, and websites trying to find out what breweries and beers are in our own backyard. A simple Google map is great, but we wanted something better. Chicagos.Beer distills those many hours of research into a simple location-based interface for our users.” – Jeremy Hylen (Co-Founder)
