THE BERGHOFF RESTAURANT PRESENTS

A craft brewery for all

In the late 1800s, The Berghoff’s founder Herman Joseph Berghoff, alongside his brothers, began the generational legacy of brewing beer in Ft. Wayne, IN.  After a successful stint selling his now famous Dortmund style lager, on the outside skirts of The World’s Fair in 1895, he decided to move his family to Chicago and obtain a retail license to open a cafe. Located on the corner of State and Adams was Berghoff’s first location in 1898, there you could get a stein and a sandwich for a nickel. Moved in 1912,  just a door down from its original site, you will find still standing and operating the iconic Berghoff Restaurant.

In fall of 2018, the Berghoff family and restaurant was awarded a resolution for 120 years of excellence in the city of Chicago. Only fitting, to commemorate this momentous achievement, The Berghoff Restaurant paid homage to its roots by opening their first ever, in-house brewery: Adams Street Brewery.

Adams Street, located right off the “great State street,” is where The Berghoff became an iconic,  historic establishment, earned Chicago’s first liquor license post Prohibition, and has served generations upon generations of Chicagoans and tourists. To many, the building on Adams Street is more than just a location; it’s a “real-time, working memory factory.” As a tribute to the place that the Berghoff family has called home for over a century, the Chicago craft brewery is appropriately named Adams Street Brewery.
