While we get more beer places opening all the time, one of them is closing. The West Loop's Beer Bistro has announced they will be closing after 13 years. A post on their Facebook page notes that their last day of business will be May 12, at 1061 W Madison St.
I'm trying to get ahead of my schedule for Illinois Craft Beer Week, starting May 18. I'll post my regular calendar articles a little sooner, but continue adding events as I find them, and start daily listings of ICBW event highlights.
