Hairy Cow Beer

Our beer is handcrafted with love in Byron, IL.

Why Hairy Cow?

The partners settled on the name Hairy Cow in honor of the Scottish Highland cattle Todd raised on his property just outside Byron, Illinois. These adorable creatures formed the inspiration for the brewery and several of the beer names.

For example, Denmar is the herd bull, and a perfect choice for the name of the seasonal Oktoberfest brew. The bangs which cover the Highland’s eyes, and give the cattle their iconic look, are called a dossan, hence the name Dossan Amber. We also offer a Highland Hairy IPA, an American Hairy IPA, and most recently a double chocolate milk stout named Dos Dookies. We’ll let you figure out that name for yourself.

Using locally produced ingredients whenever possible and in season, Hairy Cow Brewing Company also prides itself by donating our spent brewer’s grain to local farms, where it is used as cow feed, as well as a local artisan bakery.
