About Us

Owned and operated by Brandon and Amanda Wright, Chicago Brew Werks and Werk Force Brewing are driven by a true passion for craft beer and community. Chicago Brew Werks is a full service brewing supply shop with a retail location in Plainfield, IL and web orders ship nationally. We are proud to hold the the Midwest’s largest selection of malted grains and we are the exclusive hops dealer in Chicagoland for Hop Head Farms. From the first time homebrewer to the professional, find everything you need to take your beer to the next level at Chicago Brew Werks. With a foundation in homebrewing, Werk Force Brewing will produce unique batches created by outside-of-the-box thinking. Utilizing the extensive ingredient selection available at Chicago Brew Werks, Werk Force Brewing stays on the cusp of the industry by brewing with experimental hops and yeast strains. Currently, Werk Force beer is available at Chicago Brew Werks' Tap Room and soon draft beer will be available at craft beer destinations throughout the suburbs of Chicago.
