About Motor Row Brewing

Motor Row Brewing began its journey in a college duplex in Rutland Vermont where head brewer Frank Lassandrello and his roommate began home brewing as a means to access quality beer and meet girls.  It continued as Frank learned the craft and mastered new skills working at Otter Creek Brewing in Middlebury, Vermont, Lake Front Brewing in Milwaukee, and at the starting place of most of Chicago’s craft industry, Goose Island Brewing.

After falling in love with Motor Row neighborhood and purchasing the current brewery location in 2007, Bob Lassandrello decided to partner up with his son Frank, and build a world class brewing facility in a world class neighborhood.  Their philosophy is simple: brew a high quality, drinkable selection of lagers and ales, access the finest ingredients as locally as possible, and invite the city of Chicago and beyond to discover what they already knew. ..Frank brews damn good beers, and Motor Row is a fascinating place to enjoy them.
