A few years ago, three friends outside of Chicago decided to take their love of beer and a strong friendship to the next level, and Kinslahger Brewing Company was born. At first glance you may think the name Kinslahger is a typo. In reality, it's actually a mash up of two words central to the brewery's story - kinship, the connection with others, and lager, their specialty. This emphasis on a connection to others, along with pride in their Chicago roots, makes Kinslahger Brewing Company who they are. It's also what led them to Dixie Canner.
