The closest one to you I believe is Winmakers and Brew 689 W North ave Elmhurst Il 630-834-0507

I would recommend mail order at Midwest Homebrewing in Minnesota they deliver in a couple of days, no sales tax but you do pay for shipping but the cost to drive to Elmhurst, Madison or Milwaukee is expensive probably more than the shipping cost.
Some local bottled water company may sell corboys but I'm not sure. Also don't know what size you want 5 gal or 61/2 I doubt if they would have both sizes .

Ps I live in Mount Prospect IL

Try this link.
http://www.beertown.org/homebrewing/shops.asp

If that doesn't work, go to your local library. I'm sure they have telephone books from every decent-sized city and town in your area and you will find it in there. Happy hunting.

Yahoo yellow pages spat out a bunch within an area that would not be too painful to drive to. I just put in Beer Brewing
