New Brewery, Meadery Coming to Downtown Yorkville

I LOVE me some good craft beer! I even have the beard and flannel shirts to prove it. Imagine my surprise when I read in Kendall County NOW about a new brewery coming to downtown Yorkville!

It is called Fox Republic, and is planned for the building at 101 S. Bridge Street in historic downtown Yorkville!

It’s the same building that houses the newly-opened Iconic Coffee Shop, and WILL be the home of a new meadery as well dubbed Foxes Den, which is Yorkville’s FIRST winery — actually, the first craft beverage producer in town — and Kendall County’s only meadery! Oh…and a BADASS logo, I mus say!

To recap…that’s a coffee shop (open now), a meadery (open soon), a brewery (planned for next Summer), and other local business, all in ONE building at the corner of Bridge and Hydrolic, which is just steps from Foxy’s Ice Cream, Crusade Burger Bar, Rowdy’s, The Law Office Music Hall (which is technically closed, but I love that place so I refuse to accept that it’s closed and hope it will come back!), and many other super cool establishments.

Mark Foster did a fantastic write up about the background of the development in Kendall County NOW…you should read it!

I’ve said for years how fantastic the United City of Yorkville is and the destination is has become. This will be just another feather in the cap of Yorkville.

According to Foster’s article, the planned opening for Fox Republic is Summer of 2023.
