Warrenville, IL – Jim and Jason Ebel of Two Brothers Brewing Company teams up with Make a Wish Foundation for the fourth straight year to grant a wish for one lucky child. This year Two Brothers threw a festival at the Roundhouse in Aurora, IL to highlight the release of their summer seasonal beers Hop Juice and Hop Juice Black. More importantly, this festival has raised several thousands of dollars towards various charities. “That’s what the Hop Juice Festival is all about” says Jason Ebel.
The Hop Juice Festival has become the highlight of the year for Two Brothers and their fans. This year the festival took place on June 1st and 2nd at the newly acquired Roundhouse. The event raised funds for charity through ticket sales, raffles, and the annual Homebrew Competition. Two Brothers is dedicated to helping the community in any way possible from using organic and locally sourced items to supporting local charities. “We are able to give back to the community and help people in need” says Jason Ebel “and we are proud to be in a position to do so.” With 10,000 attendee’s at the 2012 Hop Juice Festival, Two Brothers raised $30,000 for various charities including Make a Wish, DayOne Network, and Hesed House.
Two Brothers Brewing Company was established by Jim and Jason Ebel in 1996 with the vision of creating European influenced craft beer. Growing up in the area, it was important to them to stay local. The brewery is located in Warrenville, IL in a 40,000 square foot facility where they are on track to brew 30,000 barrels this year. Continuing to expand, they also acquired a 73,000 square foot restaurant in Aurora, IL now named Two Brothers Roundhouse. The business is still 100% family owned and will continue to help the local community feel like a part of their family.
