About Argus Brewery

We’re tough and sometimes unruly, rising from the rugged south side of Chicago to become one of the most popular craft brews in the city and beyond. Our Chicago attitude is something of which we’re proud. Something we think you’ll taste in each Argus Brew—flavor, depth, the unusual and carefully brewed taste of a premium craft beer.

Our brewery is located in the historic Joseph E. Schlitz distribution stables, dating back to the early 1900’s. Two large terra cotta horse heads on the parapet still identify this unusual building, which once housed the Schlitz horse teams and carriages. From this unique and timeless building, we create beers that challenge the best beers in the world.

As a father and son team, Bob and Patrick Jensen understood that a hard-working, can-do attitude would take Argus over the line from above average to exceptional. Today, that taste speaks for itself.
