Last Call at Chain O'Lakes: After four years of operation, Chain O'Lakes Brewing Company has been sold. Manager Curt Ames had been seeking a buyer for his brewery and was close to a deal with a company called Jimmybread, which would make artisan bread and beer at the site, but the financing fell through. Chain O'Lakes last day was December 30, with word on their Twitter feed to watch for a reopening as McHenry Brewing Co., the original name of the brewery that operated out of occupied COL's current building until the 1960s.
