The Brewery

Located in the Village of Schiller Park, Illinois, Short Fuse Brewing Company is a production brewery and taproom with a full kitchen. You will be able to find us right next to the entertainment mecca of Rosemont and right on River Road, less than a mile south of the Fashion Outlet Mall, Rosemont Convention Center and Rivers Casino. We are also only five minutes from the O'Hare terminals.


We craft our beer on a 30 barrel brewhouse and 30 barrel fermentors. We also will feature a large barrel program for aging beers. In addition, we are one of a few breweries in Illinois to feature two 30 barrel foeders. A Foeder is a giant oak vat typically used to age wine, but recently beer breweries have started using them. The main purpose of our foeders will be to age sours/wild beers and some will age 12-18 months.
