About ICBG

We are the Guild


We love craft beer. We love people. We love bringing those things together.

What We Are About

Simply put? We are all about promoting, educating and legislating. We love beer, we want to teach others about it, and we want people to enjoy it responsibly.

Our Mission

The Illinois Craft Brewers Guild is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1997 and is dedicated to promoting the development and expansion of the craft beer industry in Illinois. Its efforts are focused on the following areas:

LEGISLATIVE/REGULATORY

To allow the Guild a voice in addressing all issues, governmental or other, which affect the regulation of our industry.

EDUCATION

To provide opportunities for its members to further their brewing knowledge and to educate the consumer about the benefits and varieties of craft beer, and to encourage responsible, moderate consumption.

PROMOTION

To promote its members and their products to other brewers, suppliers, legislators, tourists and the general public.
