Brewing beer in the heart of Evanston since 2014.

Meet the Team

Happy VAlentine's DAY
to our Staff

Sketchbook started with a skeleton crew and has slowly grown. Read about small yet mighty team at our new team page launching today. 



Sketchbook Brewing Co. runs a 7 barrel brewhouse tucked away in an Evanston, Illinois alley.  That's small by most standards, but this size also gives us flexibility: we churn out a huge variety of classic, modern, and experimental beer styles.



Steps away from the brewery sits the Sketchbook taproom.  Featuring a rotating selection of up to 16 different core, seasonal, and one-off brews, there's something sure to please every beer drinker.  No TV, lots of conversation!
