DMC Chicago Beach Volleyball 2016

After a record-setting beach volleyball season last year, we returned for our sophomore effort at North Avenue Beach. A new class of DMC hires brought some fresh blood to the team. For much of the season our team was also supplemented with new employees training in the Chicago office who would eventually make their way to New York, Denver, and Boston. With so many people, we often scrimmaged each other on a different volleyball court or in a game of frisbee. We made it to the champi...

What's It Like to Start Working at DMC Chicago?

The Chicago office recently filmed and debuted its first update video.

Welcome to DMC, Dinner Theater, and the 1920s

For the welcome party of John Michael Fruhlo, Brian Sabino, and me, DMC took us out in style to Tommy’s Gun Garage, a themed dinner theater set in gangster-ridden, speakeasy-filled, flapper-crazed 1920s Chicago. From the moment we received our first email with details of the event, we knew we were getting into something interesting. We were told that there was a password in order to get into the theater, and that the password was either: 1) DMC Company, or 2) Little Jake Sent Me. Of ...

Cheers to Our New Employees at a Chicago Distilling Welcome Party

DMC has several fun traditions for onboarding new team members, including a welcome party of the employee's choice.

The pizza was amazing, featuring some unique toppings such as Bic Mac and the much admired Mac N Cheese. Our DMC...

DMC Chicago 2016 Golf Outing

DMC Chicago is back on the links! Using DMC's Activity Fund, nine DMCers hit the course after work in hopes of finding some lost birdies and maybe even an eagle. The weather leading up to the event was dire, with all weather services reporting a 70 percent chance of thunderstorms for each hour we were scheduled to be on the course. We were hopeful as we trekked about 30 minutes from the office to the beautiful Sydney Marovitz Golf Course along Lake Michigan. Wou...

The New and Improved DMC Coffee System

The New and Improved DMC Coffee System

At DMC's Chicago office, coffee is an extremely important part of everyone’s day. We've been using a Keurig K-Cup system to make decent coffee. Although they are easy and convenient, K-Cups have a high per-cup cost when compared to just buying coffee beans and they create a lot of plastic waste. Our old Bunn Drip Coffee Brewer does make a lot of coffee, and it is easy to control the strength of the coffee. On the down side, the coffee is brewed at a very low, inconsistent temper...
