Brewing beer in the heart of Evanston since 2014.


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!


From the Kickstarter funders who helped get us off the ground to the over 400 members who continue to make us a part of their lives, Sketchbook is about community. Find out what it means to be a member.
