Two Brothers Artisan Brewing

Two Brothers Artisan Brewing was founded by Jim and Jason Ebel in late 1996. What started out as a two-man passion project, Two Brothers has grown into a lifestyle brand, including award-winning craft beer, three artisan restaurants, specialty-grade coffee, a distribution company and a line of hand-crafted spirits. With an unrelenting passion for producing high-quality, well-balanced beers that push the boundaries of flavor, Two Brothers remains 100% family owned and staunchly independent.

Backstory

Two Brothers was founded on one thing: passion. When brothers Jim and Jason Ebel discovered their passion for great beer while traveling the world, they followed it and started Two Brothers Artisan Brewing.

Over the past 20 years, the brothers’ two-man passion project has grown into a lifestyle brand that offers multiple products and spans over a dozen states. And while we may be a little bigger these days, Two Brothers remains true to its passion. For us, that means brewing with our beliefs, roasting with no regrets and creating an atmosphere where friends and family come first.

This means maintaining higher standards, even if that means lowering our production capacity. Taking care of every customer that walks through our door as well as giving back to our community. Saving this family owned business for future generations, not selling out to a big corporation. Making the most memorable collection of artisan products while making the least environmental impact. And displaying an unrelenting passion in everything we do.

Craft with a Conscience has been passed down through the Two Brothers family. Their grandfather, a dairy farmer, also passed down his bulk milk tanks that the brothers originally converted into fermenters. Now it’s grown into 40,000 square foot facility with a 50 barrel brewing system and 3000 barrels of fermentation space. Two Brothers continually finds ways to use technology to improve efficiency and conserve energy. They also find ways to support the community where they’ve grown up, whether it’s sponsoring local teams, donating spent grain to local farmers, or protecting the area’s natural resources.

Over 21 years later, Two Brothers remains passionate about what matters.

For us, that means refusing to cut corners, supporting the local community, remaining 100% family owned and independent and creating award-winning products sustainably and with integrity.

Follow Your Passion, Drink Ours.

Two Brothers Tap House

Welcome to Two Brothers Tap House – the house that independent craft beer built. This full-service brewpub restaurant is where you can come for true authentic craft beer complemented by mouthwatering artisan dishes.

We use organic meats, sustainable seafood and poultry and the highest quality produce, plus we make everything fresh in our open kitchen. We have all of your favorite Two Brothers’ beers and sodas. There is something to eat and drink for the whole family!

Two Brothers Roundhouse

To house the big, bold flavors of Two Brothers artisan beer and food, you need more than a corner bar. You need a place where people can taste all Two Brothers has to offer and experience live entertainment all year round. A place where you can meet for a round or two, or have a big night out. A place where you’ll actually look forward to making a round trip on a Metra train.

The Two Brothers Roundhouse is a full service brewpub restaurant, music venue and banquet space for large events and weddings. It also features the Two Brothers Cafe and Beer Bar, as well as one of the largest and most unique beer gardens you’ll ever see – it’s a real head turner. Passion for beer, love of food and appreciation for great architecture flourish in the walls of this historic 70,000 square foot facility.

The roundhouse was constructed in 1856 to serve Aurora on the Chicago & Aurora Railroad. The walls of the structure were constructed with locally quarried limestone from Batavia, Illinois. The building is the oldest limestone roundhouse in the United States and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
