Sketchbook Brewing Co. is a community supported nano brewery, co-founded in 2014, by two beer enthusiasts - Shawn Decker and Cesar Marron. Since then they have expanded their community by offering high-quality, thoughtfully brewed beer.
It all started in the winter, across the parking in the alley at the orange door!
Marron and Decker started a nano brewery at a backdoor facility in Evanston. They started inviting over friends, well-wishers and beer fans to try their freshly brewed beers. How did people find sketchbook? They were directed to enter the bright orange door in the alley and that was a humble beginning which gave Sketchbook's first IPA its name, "Orange Door", bold grapefruit flavor contrasted by malt sweetness depicting the character of Sketchbook Brewing Co.
"No parking" and "Snowy owl" were the other initial brews that were sold when Sketchbook was more a backdoor place to pick up beer.
As the name implies, there are color pencils and coaster papers to draw spontaneous sketches which are then displayed on boards facing the wall of fame.
