Cheers: Aurora’s Roundhouse sold to Two Brothers Brewery of Warrenville
The Two Brothers Brewery of Warrenville announced Tuesday afternoon via Facebook and Twitter that they have bought America’s Historic Roundhouse restaurant and brewpub.
Scott Ascher, former Roundhouse operator, confirmed the news, but said the sale has not been finalized.
“They won it at an auction yesterday afternoon,” Ascher said Tuesday.
America’s Historic Roundhouse was formerly named Walter Payton’s Roundhouse.
Two Brothers Brewery has been brewing artisan craft beers, including Domain DuPage and Cane and Ebel, since 1997. The Brewery also operates the Two Brothers Tap House in Warrenville.
Jason Ebel, who co-owns Two Brothers with his brother, Jim, said two other groups submitted bids on the Roundhouse, but only one showed up at the auction Monday. Two Brothers purchased the operation for $1.1 million, which Ebel called “a virtual steal.”
