Forbidden Root

Forbidden Root, the first botanical brewery in Chicago, was founded as a passionately personal project by Robert Finkel after leaving the world of high-stakes entrepreneurship.

We are a benefit corporation, meaning that goals other than shareholder value are built into our operating charter. Read More
