New brewery ready to open its doors

Lil Beaver Brewery will open its new taproom on Thursday

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - A new brewery called Lil Beaver Brewery is opening a taproom Thursday in Bloomington.

WMBD spoke to Chad Bevers almost two years ago, when he was just starting the process of opening up his own taproom. Bevers has been brewing beer for more than a decade. Now, he and his business partner, Dale Thomas, are ready to open their doors.

The brewery will pour ten beers from their taps. The names of each beer are inspired by their kids, and they funny things they say.

The brewery will rotate beers often, to give more variety. Bever says he's tried to create a beer for everyone

"A lot of hard work has gone into this. I'm really proud of the work that Dale has done. He literally built our bar with his own two hands," he said.

"We're really looking forward to opening the doors. We feel like we've got a lot of support from the community and looking forward to keeping that going," Thomas added.

The brewery will also run monthly promotions with local non-profits. Every time someone orders a pint, $1 will be donated to the charity of the month. The first charity is MarcFirst.

The doors to Lil Beaver Brewery open Thursday at 4:00 pm. The taproom is located at 16 Currency Drive in Bloomington.
