Blue Island Beer Company’s Taproom


Located in the Historical District of Blue Island, IL., on Olde Western Ave, our address (13357 Olde Western Ave, Blue Island, IL 60406) is for the entire, multi-business building.  Our entrance is actually around the corner on the SE side, adjacent to the parking lot, and is the door closest to the Western Bridge. Please feel free to park in this lot, as there is plenty of free parking for our customers. There are also several ways to get to our place via public transportation (see Contact Page.)

Through making a range of styles, offering a variety of size options, and serving a few beers that are only available in the Tap Room, you can tailor a visit to suit you.  We don’t have a kitchen, but please B.Y.O.F. (Bring Your Own Food), or grab something from any of the great area spots.  We hope to occasionally have food vendors right outside our front doors.

We are excited to add to the growing craft beer scene along Olde Western Ave.  Along with the other establishments in the area, we wish to be a positive member of the growth of craft beer on the south side.
