These guys are super cool! The founder is a Chicago native - opening the brewery in Northern California in 1993. Over the past 20 years, Lagunitas has grown to be one of the top craft brewers in the US, growing from a 27,000 barrel production in 2004 to over 106,000 barrels in 2010! The overwhelming popularity of their product has inspired them to bring it home...opening a brewery right here in Chicago in 2014. While they are growing larger in size, they're as homegrown as it gets - a cool brand, great beer, and good people......AND, they are the official beer sponsor of Windy City BBQ Classic 2014! They will be onsite, with their giant beer-dispensing trucks, satisfying the thirst of all the BBQ & Beer-loving Chicagoans.
