Grown in Illinois with Irish Roots
Inspired by Irish brewing and distilling style, Silver Tree takes their home-grown grains and turns them into Illinois alcohol with an Irish twist.
How three brothers turned brewers/distillers.
Our spirits are handcrafted from the ground up. From pollination to pour, grain to glass, seed to spirit; our hands have been involved in the process to deliver you premium, artesanal drinks.
Coming from a farming background, we know the value of hard work, but most importantly the reward. When we see a group kicking back and enjoying themselves over one of our small batch spirits, we know we did a job well done.
The craft beer phase has taken over America, and our beers are as craft as they can get. We start by planting the grains and using local hops from our friends at Land Locked Hops, located just a few miles up the road, then brew in our shed over good conversation with great friends.
Our beers are currently only Home Brew and only available for sample at our brewing demonstrations. Follow us on social media below to find out where you can try our tasty beverages.
Our malts start with quality grains that just so happens to be home-grown straight from our certified organic 5th generation family farm in East-Central Illinois.
We put care and precision in our sustainable farming practice because we believe that the best drinks come from the best grains.
Contact us if you're a brewer or distiller interested in using our quality grains.
