Welcome to Indiana – The Crossroads of America To some Chicago and Illinois residents, Indiana must seem much further away than it actually is. Many local intrepid craft beer aficionados will traverse all over the Illinois portion of Chicagoland, seeking out the many fine craft breweries we are blessed with, but except for 3 Floyds and 18th Street Brewery, it seems like the rest of the Indiana local spots are somewhat ignored. Taking a quick glance at my handy globe, there’s several craft breweries you can visit, within a quick roadtrip from Chicago, just over that mystical Indiana border. We’ve compiled a list of all the Indiana breweries we could find that are within 60 miles of Chicago. So, gas up the car, and  check out these breweries practically in our backyard! And please, if you know of a brewery we’ve missed, please let us know so we can add it to the list!
