Tours and Tastings
Looking for a completely unique experience in Chicagoland? Learn about the ancient craft of coopering! Your host, Loren Buchmeier, is one of less than 50 Master Coopers in the world. He and his son, Holden will host your private tour which will include the history and science of barrels, along with coopering demonstrations. Crozehead Cooperage is one of 26 Cooperages in the United States and the only cooperage in Illinois. As a nano-cooperage we strive to preserve a heritage craft in a mechanized coopering economy.
