Maplewood opened with the mission to push liquid boundaries in an unassuming building nestled in Chicago’s historic Logan Square neighborhood. The first of its kind to establish brewing and distilling roots under a single roof, Maplewood has been producing finely crafted beer and spirits out of their 10BBL brewhouse and 250L Kothe hybrid still since 2014. Three years after moving into the production facility, Maplewood opened the Lounge, a neighborhood bar doubling as a cocktail parlor and brewery taproom. Beginning commercial distribution throughout Illinois shortly after settling into the Logan Square space, Maplewood has since expanded their distribution footprint into Missouri, SW Michigan, Northern Indiana, Wisconsin and Kansas. Maplewood’s patrons have come to expect expertly crafted beer in a wide range of styles. The name Maplewood was chosen in honor of the former village of Maplewood, where the brewery/distillery is located. The Village of Maplewood was one of the outlying towns that survived the Great Chicago Fire, and its residents, largely immigrant builders, aided in the rebuilding of the city. The Maplewood are as eventually annexed by Chicago in 1889 to form the Logan Square neighborhood, which we think is pretty great.
