Located in the Village of Schiller Park, Illinois, Short Fuse Brewing Company is a production brewery and taproom with a full kitchen. You will be able to find us right next to the entertainment mecca of Rosemont and right on River Road, less than a mile south of the Fashion Outlet Mall, Rosemont Convention Center and Rivers Casino. We are also only five minutes from the O'Hare terminals.
We craft our beer on a 30 barrel brewhouse and 30 barrel fermentors. We also will feature a large barrel program for aging beers. In addition, we are one of a few breweries in Illinois to feature two 30 barrel foeders. A Foeder is a giant oak vat typically used to age wine, but recently beer breweries have started using them. The main purpose of our foeders will be to age sours/wild beers and some will age 12-18 months.
We offer brewery tours Saturday and Sunday starting at 3pm. A reservation is required. You can call us at
The secret to our success? It’s quite simple, really. Three words: quality craft beer. It may not be simple to get our standard of beer, but for us, it’s second nature - it’s our passion - it’s kind of our thing. The difference is in our classic brewing style mixed with our own little creative flare; the result? A taste so crisp, bold, original, and, dare we say, explosive, you’ll have to taste it to believe it.
