Two Brothers Roundhouse

Love of beer makes the world go round

To house the big, bold flavors of Two Brothers artisan beer and food, you need more than a corner bar. You need a place where people can taste all Two Brothers has to offer and experience live entertainment all year round. A place where you can meet for a round or two, or have a big night out. A place where you’ll actually look forward to making a round trip on a Metra train.

Two Brothers Roundhouse

205 N. Broadway, Aurora, IL 60505

Welcome to the Two Brothers Roundhouse

The Two Brothers Roundhouse is a full service brewpub restaurant, music venue and banquet space for large events and weddings. It also features the Two Brothers Cafe and Beer Bar, as well as one of the largest and most unique beer gardens you’ll ever see – it’s a real head turner. Passion for beer, love of food and appreciation for great architecture flourish in the walls of this historic 70,000 square foot facility.

The roundhouse was constructed in 1856 to serve Aurora on the Chicago & Aurora Railroad. The walls of the structure were constructed with locally quarried limestone from Batavia, Illinois. The building is the oldest limestone roundhouse in the United States and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Roundhouse Cafe

Two Brothers Roundhouse Cafe

The first Two Brothers Cafe & Beer Bar opened in August 2013 in the Two Brothers Roundhouse in Aurora, IL. Sharing the same space as the 7.5 barrel brewery and artisanal bakery, it was carefully designed to be a coffee bar by day and a beer bar by night. Two Brothers’ specialty-grade Arabica coffee is served in the cafe with a full line of professionally prepared and served artisanal teas. Limited batch coffee is even roasted right on site! In addition, a rotating selection of six guest beers, available only in the cafe, are on draft during cafe hours.
