WILL DESTIHL RESTAURANT & BREW WORKS GIFT CARDS AND LOYALTY PROGRAM CARDS BE ACCEPTED AT THE NEW BREWERY?
Yes. All DESTIHL gift cards purchased from either our online store or at one of our brewpubs will be accepted as payment at the new brewery. Loyalty points earned at any DESTIHL location will count towards your rewards.
MUST YOU BE 21 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER TO VISIT THE BREWERY?
All ages are welcomed in our Beer Hall. We will offer the same family-friendly atmosphere as our brewpubs in Normal and Champaign. Non-alcoholic beverages will be available as well. Tours of our production facility will be available for patrons 13 years of age or older.
WHAT SIZE BREWHOUSE WILL THE NEW BREWERY HAVE?
The new brewery will feature a highly specialized brewhouse comprised of a 60-barrel brewhouse, a 240-barrel sour kettle brewhouse and a 10-barrel pilot system, all of which is being manufactured by W.M. Sprinkman Corp. of Wisconsin. This system will ultimately be capable of brewing more than 100,000 barrels of beer annually, although initial fermentation capacity will be 30,000 barrels annually and can be scaled up rapidly as needed to meet demand.
IS DESTIHL BREWERY AND DESTIHL RESTAURANT & BREW WORKS THE SAME THING?
In short, no. While both organizations are owned by DESTIHL Holdings, LLC., DESTIHL Brewery is our production brewery that brews and packages our beer in draft, can and bottle form and provides it to a network of beer distribution partners around the United States.
DESTIHL Restaurant & Brew Works is a restaurant/brewpub concept where we brew many of our award-winning beers and serve them alongside our made from scratch food in a full-service environment.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DESIGN AND BUILD OF THE NEW BREWERY?
We are utilizing the services of Central-Illinois based Vissering Construction Company, which also built Hancock Stadium for the Illinois State University Redbirds and the ISU Center for the Performing Arts in Normal, and Shive-Hattery, a Midwest-based architecture and engineering firm. DESTIHL is proud to utilize union labor/workers for the construction of this new facility.
WILL KEGS, CANS, CROWLERS OR BOTTLES OF BEER BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE?
Yes. All of our on-site brewed beer (and food) will be available for carry-out.

I WANT TO HOST AN EVENT IN THE BEER HALL AT THE BREWERY, AM I ABLE TO RENT THE SPACE?
Unfortunately, no. We will not close or rent out the Beer Hall (or production areas) for private events, but we will explore ways to possibly have events on the brewery grounds in the future.
I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NEW BREWERY, WHO SHOULD I CONTACT?
We love to hear from you. Please visit our Contact page for options on how to reach
out to us.
WHEN WILL THE NEW BREWERY AND BEER HALL OPEN?
The new brewery and Beer Hall will open to the public on Saturday, May 27th 2017 at 11:00am. All updates will be posted on this website.
CAN YOU SHIP ME DESTIHL BEER?
Unfortunately, we can’t ship beer directly to consumers. We understand how wonderful it would be to have our beer show up at your doorstep, but legally it just isn't able to happen. Our beer is available in over 17 states at select retailers or on-premise establishments. To see our growing list of distribution partners, visit our Beer Finder page.
WILL THE NEW BREWERY'S BEER HALL MENU BE DIFFERENT FROM YOUR EXISTING BREWPUBS?
Yes. Our gastrobrewpubs offer guests the chance to enjoy a dining experience where our craft beer brewed both on-site and at our production brewery can be enjoyed with a full menu of our classic American-inspired pub fare, and our bars not only feature DESTIHL beer, but also adventurous house cocktails, a distinctive wine list and many locally crafted spirits.
Our beer hall, on the other hand, will feature an all-new condensed menu that pairs perfectly with our bold-flavored beers you've come to love from DESTIHL Brewery, as well as many beer hall-exclusive bottles and draft releases of pilot, experimental and barrel-aged beers brewed on-site.
IS DESTIHL RESTAURANT & BREW WORKS ON S. TOWANDA AVE. IN NORMAL MOVING?
No, our original brewpub will remain open and continue to feature our signature DESTIHL Restaurant & Brew Works menu as well as wine, cocktails and of course, our on-site-brewed in addition to packaged beers.
IS DESTIHL BREWERY AND/OR THE BEER HALL HIRING?
We are always accepting applications/resumes for all positions. For more information, click here.
ARE OTHER BRANDS OF BEER, OR WINE & SPIRITS AVAILABLE?
Unfortunately, no. Illinois State law will only allow us to serve DESTIHL brand beer that has been brewed on-site, which we will proudly serve along with some non-alcoholic beverages. Currently, there will be no wine or spirits available.
ARE RESERVATIONS OR CALL-AHEAD SEATING ACCEPTED?
Unlike our brewpubs, we will not take reservations or call-ahead seating in the Beer Hall.
