Baderbräu is a 25,000 sq. ft craft brewery located at the corner of 25th and Wabash in Chicago, IL.We make lager and wheat beers that are flavorful, crushable, and affordable. The brewery was founded to revive Chicagoland’s original craft beer, a Czech-style pilsener that was popular in the early to mid nineties. Our founder, Rob Sama, used to drink Baderbräu Pilsener, while first learning to home brew as an undergraduate at the University of Chicago.In 2012, after hunting down the original recipe and yeast strain from the original Baderbräu brewmaster, Rob relaunched the beer, rechristened as Baderbräu Chicago Pilsener.The new brewery and taproom opened in Spring of 2016.
