Pavichevich Brewery gets off ground in IL.

Pavichevich Brewery gets off ground in IL

It took Ken Pavichevich, president, Pavichevich Brewing Co., Elmhurst, IL, a couple of years since his days at Northern Illinois University to decide what he would do with his life, but since he opted to enter the brewing field he is making a name for himself around Chicago.

His $2.2-million "state-of-the-art" brewery produces no more than 20,000 barrels of brew per year, Pavichevich explained, and it employs no more than 11 workers, including a truck driver. At the present time, the brewery conconcts only the dark "Baderbrau," which is distributed on-tap only in about 120 Chicago bars and restaurants. Pavichevich added that the density of the brew cause it to "ooze" from the tap, further intriguing customers.
