Beer has been in our blood for over 83 years.


Founded in 1934 by brothers Joseph, Eddie, Andy, and Bill, Kozol Brothers Inc. is a locally owned and operated distributor of domestic, craft, and import beers and ciders. Under the brothers’ leadership, the company grew exponentially as it continuously built a portfolio of brands that has established the distributor as one of the preeminent beverage distributors in the Chicago suburbs.

Since 2001, Ed Kozol has continued to expand Kozol Brothers while also keeping true to the principles set forth by his father and uncles. Kozol Brothers is a multiple-time recipient of the MillerCoors President’s Award for excellence and quality, and has grown into one of the largest and best-performing beverage distributors in Illinois. We lead the industry in service, quality products, and customer satisfaction.

Kozol Brothers currently operates out of a modern, professional facility over 120,000 sq. ft. in size, strategically set on the southeast edge of Joliet, Illinois. We service Will, Kankakee, and parts of Cook, Iroquois, and Grundy counties. Kozol Brothers employs approximately 150 of the finest people in the beverage industry that uphold the company’s mission statement:

Leading the industry with teamwork, superior service, and a history of customer satisfaction.

The Kozol name continues to endure as generation after generation raises a glass to great family, great opportunities, and even greater beer.
