Building a brand with Corridor's Eileen Garrity

LAKEVIEW, CHICAGO

Southport Corridor gets a brewpub. Amidst the wealth of breweries we have in Chicago, there's a surprising lack of brewing happening in one of the city's most popular and affluent neighborhoods. With what has become the real bastion of Lakeview brewing, DryHop Brewers, the neighborhood has been itching for it's craft beer companion. Thankfully, Lakeview imbibers are about to get another option in the form of Corridor Brewery & Provisions, the second project from the minds behind DryHop. We sat down with one of the brewpub duo's driving forces, Creative & Communications Director Eileen Garrity. She shared what it's been like to market, grow and expand a brand in just two years, with West Lakeview's newest addition.
