Chicago's Week with Craft Beer, August 10-13

Chicago's Week with Craft Beer, August 10-13

I regret that I just now learned that Cognito Brewery in Merrillville has closed down. The Black-owned, 9-barrel nano had to close down due to COVID-19, and had no retail clients to take up their production. However, their space will be taken over starting next week by Viking Artisan Ales. This production brewer, financed by selling memberships, has been looking for a taproom space for two years. They'll be hosting a membership drive at their current space, 305 N. Colfax St. in Griffith, IN, Saturday August 15 at 1 pm. Viking plans to open its new taproom space in October.This week in Chicago beer have anniversaries with More, and D and G Brewing.
