The metro region has surged past several longtime stalwarts to become home to more breweries than any other city in the nation — 167 — according to statistics published this week by the Brewers Association.
He counted breweries in metro areas as defined by the Census Bureau, which for Chicago extends from Northwest Indiana to Aurora, and Joliet to the Wisconsin border.
It’s a broad area with a large, progressive population, plenty of affordable real estate and a fair bit of disposable income. So in a sense, Chicago’s rise should be no surprise.
