I have another note about pending expansion in the Chicago beer scene. The village of Westmont saw groundbreaking on a mixed-use, multi-family residential development called Quincy Station. Holladay Properties is building the property south of the Metra station on Cass Ave., at 1 W. Quincy Street. The prospective first floor commercial tenant will be Whiskey Hill Brewing Co.

I'll look forward to that, as Whiskey Hill's new spot would replace the departed Scallywag Brewing in downtown Westmont, and would set up four consecutive stops on the Metra BNSF line within pub crawling distance of a brewer: WH in Westmont, and Goldfinger, Emmet's and Alter at the three Downers Grove stops. This is on a line that also stops near Flapjack and Lagunitas, and ends at the Two Brothers Roundhouse.
