A Righteously Good Chat with Church Street Brewing

ITASCA, IL

It’s inevitable, after any homebrewer’s first successful batch of beer, they begin to hear that voice that says "you could do this for a living."  For some, that voice gets drowned out by other ventures bidding for their time.  For a few, that voice gets louder and louder until it consumes every waking moment.  Soon enough, your nights are occupied with drawing up plans for your brew system, scoping out the neighborhood for that ideal location, coming up with a memorable name, and perfecting the delicious beer you are about to spread to the masses.  For Church Street Brewing Co.’s Joe and Lisa Gregor, that’s exactly what happened after Joe’s son decided to buy dad some homebrew equipment.  Little did he know how that small gift would alter his parents’ lives in the next few years.
