Thank you NWI region, Chicago and our European partners and fans across the country for sharing our love. Thanks to our amazing team whose relentless hard work has helped us reach this milestone.
Introducing 18th Street Brewery's new Executive Chef, Chef Andrew Dering. Chef Andrew got his feet wet at Chicago's Peninsula Luxury Hotels Pierrot Gourmet and then moved on to the Graham Elliot Bistro. From there Chef was a line cook and helped open A10, he was Chef de Cuisine at Billy Sunday, and he worked at Michelin Star award winning restaurants Longman & Eagle and Dusek's- the latter of which he was a Sous Chef for dinner and brunch. From elevated pub fare to innovative fine dining cuisine to Sunday brunch, we are excited to have someone with the vision, motivation, and calibre of Chef Andrew lead our Hammond brewpub's kitchen team. Once you experience his culinary creations, you will be too.
