Our Story

Owner Dave Hawley is a craft beer geek who couldn't find a local store dedicated to craft beer, so he decided to start his own. The Beer Cellar is the first store and tap room dedicated to selling fresh, thoughtfully-curated craft beer in the western suburbs of Chicago. Our first store in Glen Ellyn started downtown in a small basement shop, and in November 2016, we relocated to a new, larger storefront one block away. We now have twelve rotating taps, so you can drink a beer or two while you browse and pick out beer to take home. In the fall of 2019, we opened our second location in downtown Geneva. Just like our Glen Ellyn location, this new store is a place where you can buy excellent craft beer to go, enjoy a draft beer on one of our 20 lines, or do both! We carry a wide variety of styles from breweries in places as close as Lombard, Illinois and as far away as Belgium, as well as a small-but-mighty selection of wine, spirits, and local coffee. Our mission is to provide you the best, freshest beer, and also to be a fun, community-focused place to gather with friends. Come on in and join us for a drink.
