The Full Story

Obscurity Brewing & Craft Mead

Obscurity Brewing & Craft Mead has been years in the making. Starting as nothing more than an idea; the love for craft beer, the passion for mead, the childhood memories of eating your favorite bbq, and a want to give back to the community.


We wanted to make sure we centered ourselves around the community many of us live in, grew up in, and represented. We decided to open Obscurity in the heart of the oldest part of Elburn. Obscurity is preserving the old Farm Services Offices and Warehouse space right smack dab in the heart of the Agro-district.


We will make sure to locally source as much as we can. Even our spent grain will be re-purposed and sent to local farms within the area.



Our mission is to provide the highest quality of craft beer, mead, cider, and barbecue to the community of Elburn. We strive to give back and help the community that has given us so much.


We take extreme pride in our smoked meats. Just about everything on our menu passes through the smoking process. This gives our food that unique smokey aroma and flavor.

Smoking meat the right way takes time. Sometimes a menu item is more popular than anticipated and we run out. We appreciate your patience and understanding if this happens.
