Crystal Lake Brewing Crystal Lake, Ill.
Crystal Lake Brewing represents the very definition of local craft brewing. Founded by longtime friends Chuck Ross and John O’Fallon, CLB’s guiding mission is to bring great craft beer to their own home town. Partner and Brewmaster Ryan Clooney, having been brewing in Chicagoland for decades, has earned his reputation as an exceptionally skilled and highly experienced brewer.
For us, being independent means maintaining a strong relationship with our community, elevating the appreciation of beer and brewing culture, and of course, ensuring that we can brew the beers we envision with absolutely no compromises.
