Despite a few attempts, no brewery succeeded in Chicago until 1995, when Goose Island Beer Company, which had operated a beloved brewpub since 1988, began bottling its own brew. Its immediate success was startling: Chicagoans were eager for a hometown beer. Goose Island wasn't alone for long. Three Floyds Brewing—though technically in Munster, Indiana, just across the border from Chicago—is frequently rated among the top craft breweries in the country for its hop-heavy beers. In the western suburbs, the always eclectic Two Brothers Brewing Company has just celebrated its tenth anniversary by releasing a kriek (sour cherry) beer called 10, the first in a new line of beers in the Belgian lambic style, fermented with wild yeasts.
