I am caught in a very busy time: on top of my regular 40-hour work week, I'm working nearly 40 hours more on a seasonal job from home, as in four-hour shifts during the week and 24 hours during the weekend. So I'm punching this through now and adding more stuff as it comes in.
And there is another new beer maker having a "soft opening" this weekend. One Lake Brewing has opened its doors to shake down its recipes and staff. They're at 1 Lake St. in Oak Park, just of the Lake St. Green Line station.
