Welcome to Demo Brewing Company, a hidden gem nestled in the heart of the Ravenswood neighborhood, known as Malt Row, in Chicago, IL. We pride ourselves on being more than just a nano brewery — we're a community hub where good times, good friends, and exceptional craft beverages come together.

Our Philosophy

At Demo, we're not just brewing beer; we're crafting experiences. Just like musicians share their demo tapes, and engineers unveil their latest work on demo days, we are constantly experimenting with new recipes and demo'ing them to you. Our philosophy revolves around brewing in small craft batches, and we believe in variety, which is why our menu is ever-changing.

Our Story

Jeff, Chelsie, Lucas, Melissa

Back in the summer of 2017, Jeff Borders and Lucas Irvine, the co-founders behind Demo, were visiting the Revolution Taproom on Kedzie Avenue in Chicago. It started out as a casual conversation like any other, then turned into talking about the shared dream of starting a cool little brewery and taproom. Back then, it sounded like a piece of cake: imagine a laid-back spot with good music, and great tasting beer!

Fast forward to late 2018, Jeff and Lucas started talking details and a business plan. Their shared passion and determination led them to turn dream into reality. Several years later, Demo Brewing Company opened its 'garage' doors.

Crafting Unique Brews

Our brews are a labor of love, each concoction a testament to our commitment to quality and innovation. From hoppy IPAs to rich stouts, we explore the full spectrum of flavors. Check our ever-evolving menu to discover the latest creations.
