HOW AND WHY WE ENDED UP HERE

Like many great bands or tech start ups, Lo Rez began in a garage - we were just two dudes riffing on new recipes, inspired by classics such as Duvel and Old Rasputin. We brewed traditional styles that we wanted to drink and introduce to our friends and neighbors. 

As our skills grew, so did our appreciation for creating something tangible that brought people together. Our desires eventually outgrew our garage, and after 3 years of training, planning and scheming, we found a space in Pilsen and broke ground in 2015.

We wanted to get back to making things that didn’t need a thumbs up or lots of followers to know it worked. Making beer allowed us create something with our hands that also connected us to the community. We went low-res as a way to go back to old world craftsmanship, connect friends and neighbors, and make traditional beer for a modern world.

 

THE FOUNDERS

KEVIN LILLY

A code monkey for 20 years, Kevin spoke Ruby, Java, and database-ese at numerous technology companies big and small. When he discovered microbrews and European imports, things suddenly made sense. He honed his brewing skills at Metropolitan Brewing, 5 Rabbit, and a degree from Siebel Institute, all while brewing at home. He lives with his wife and two cats in Chicago and likes gardening when he isn’t working the tap handles.


Dave Dahl

From Ohio, to Purdue, to Chicago. Dave made his way through various tech startups as a sub-par programmer and adequate CTO. His 20 years of homebrewing started as wanting cheaper beer, then good beer, and finally a new career. Dave furthered his beer education with three Belgium trips, BJCP certification, Siebel certification, and one year volunteering at Metropolitan Brewery. He has traveled the world and is at 16 countries and counting.
