Seery Athlone Brewing Company

Seery Athlone Brewing Company We are a father and son owned micro-brewery based in Addison, IL, carrying on the tradition of our Irish ancestors. In the fall of 2010, we bought a beer brewing kit – an American Pale Ale – just for fun. Before we knew it, we were devoting countless hours to this new hobby, so we decided to make use of this obsession and commit ourselves to perfecting the brewing process and creating unique tastes to tell our story. Jim Stephen, President, graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Microbiology in 1981. He has more than 30 years of experience in fermentation – Perfect for brewing beer! Bradley Stephen, Vice-president, also graduated from Iowa State University in 2013 with a degree in Philosophy – Perfect for drinking and taste testing! We developed our flagship beer, Gramma Katie’s Irish Red Ale, prior to forming the brewery. The picture on the label is the real Gramma Katie (Jim’s grandmother and Brad’s great-grandmother) circa 1953. Gramma Katie’s father, Patrick Seery, emigrated to the states from the town of Athlone, Ireland, in the 1880s. He lived in Chicago for a decade before moving out west, laboring to build the railroad in the process, and eventually founding a new town in Colorado with just two hammers and one nail, as family legend states. Like many Irish of his time – and this time – he regarded beer as key to a balanced diet. Gramma Katie’s Irish Red Ale carries on family tradition with a strong, red-headed flavor that’s just a little nutty…in maltiness. In addition to Gramma Katie’s Irish Red Ale, we currently brew three other beers: Taranis Stout, Moosey’s IPA, and 81 Shandy Lane Ale. You can learn more about our beers here. We hope you enjoy drinking them as much as we enjoy making them!
