About Us

“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” 
― NOT Benjamin Franklin

THE WHAT

Founded in 2016, Will County Brewing Company (WCBC) is an exciting locally owned and operated craft brewery with tap room opening in the picturesque village of Shorewood, Illinois in late 2017.  Our focus can be summed up with three C’s – Craft, Community, and Charity.


THE WHY

A love for the art of craft beer.  A shared vision of bringing something new and exciting to our own hometown.  A desire to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.  The excitement of joining the craft brewing community.  To realize a dream.  To meet great people and support great causes.  All this and more.

THE WHO

President and Brewmaster, Jamie Albert’s beard is the real deal.  James “Master Of Pineapples” Kennedy and Eric “The Numbers Guy” Wills round out the founding team.  With a combined 12 years of brewing experience, there won’t be any shortage of great recipes and good times.
