Kings & Convicts Brewing Co.
Kings & Convicts Brewing Co. is a privately held company headquartered in Highwood, Illinois, in the North Shore of Chicago — a town that Teddy Roosevelt (the toughest President in America) once called the “Toughest Town in America.”
Conceived by an Englishman and an Aussie, Kings & Convicts started brewing for the public in 2017 and was built on the freedom of anti-authority and the spirit of fellowship.
They brew ales and lagers inspired by the tales of convicts, royalty and the undercurrent of American gangsters. Every beer tells a story.
King & Convicts brews Ales and Pilsners utilizing hops and malts from the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and England. Their beers are available on draft and in cans at its taproom and in bars and restaurants across Chicagoland and southern Wisconsin.
