About Our Brewery
DESTIHL® Brewery is located in the G.E. Warehouses just off of Veterans Parkway and General Electric (G.E.) Road in Bloomington, IL. The production brewery occupies 20,000 sq. ft. and is also home to DESTIHL’s corporate offices. The building is situated just half a mile from our first gastrobrewpub location in Normal, IL.The production brewery features a 25 barrel (BBL), four vessel, steam-heated Saaz Brewhouse capable of producing over 20,000 barrels a year. Currently we are operating with a 15,000 barrel annual fermentation capacity utilizing eight 60 barrel (BBL) fermenters, five 30 BBL fermenters, two 60 BBL and two 30 BBL brite tanks and a 60,000 lbs. malt silo. Our 5,000 sq ft. beer cellar is presently storing over 300 oak barrels (a mix of former California wine barrels and also bourbon barrels), plus a 33 hectoliter (871 gallon) oak foudre and two 45 hectoliter (1,188 gallon) oak foudres (each received directly from France). The cellar has enough vertical space for over 100,000 cu. ft. of barrel aging, with the bulk of it used for our renowned sour beer program. On the packaging side, we have an automated canning line manufactured by Cask Brewing Systems. We’ve recently added an Italian bottling line for bottling our Saint Dekkera Reserve Sour Ales and other specialty releases. This rotary, 6-head rinser/filler with labeler (fills 600-1,000 bottles per hour, or 10-16 bpm). Italian bottling line.
It has taken countless hours to develop the unique concept that is now DESTIHL, where we utilize both global brewing traditions and new American craft brewing ingenuity and artisanship to make uncommon beers uncommonly well.
Whether you share it or hoard it, we hope you enjoy our beer.
After all, you deserve it.
