We have yet another beer brewer opening up a new taproom in Chicago. Printers Row Brewing is a nanobrewer that's had kegs popping up on tap at bars in the South Loop Printers Row since 2015. Now they have their own tap room, but up north: 4801 N Austin Ave. They're now open, Wednesday through Sunday....
This week is enhanced by the debut of Moor's Brewing, a new Black-owned brewery, during the week of Juneteenth. Moor's is currently brewing out of 18th Street in Hammond, and will sampling out their Session Ale through the week....
Not much in the way of headlines right now, except to note that the full reopening of dining and drinking establishments is on schedule. Check below for some brewery craft fairs, and anniversary events!
However, I did miss the chance to give another advance warning about tickets for the Great Taste of the Midwest. Tickets were to be sold only to mail orders postmarked on June 7. I mentioned that a few weeks earlier, but it sure would have been nice of me to mention it again. I'm sorry....
Had it a little easier compiling this listing. After Memorial Day weekend, and with the area lifting more mask and social distancing requirements, a lot of venues will be playing catch-up. If more events are added, they will be on my Beeronaut Calendar App.
Some of these events may still be continuing social distancing restrictions as announced. Some may be lifting them. If a place is still requiring you to wear a mask, please don't be a jerk....
We are noting that the Illinois State Legislature has passed HB 2620, an omnibus bill containing key provisions of the Brewers Economic & Equity Relief (BEER) Act, intended to help craft breweries recover from the COVID pandemic. The bill goes to Gov. Pritzker for his signature.
The act creates a new "Class 3" license for small Illinois brewers, that will allow them to continue curbside pickup and limited self-distribution. The distribution will also apply to brewers that also make wine or distill spirits. Class 3 license holders will have access to a new ‘Beer Showcase Permit,’ allowing them to serve their beer in off-site venues such as farmers markets, street festivals, and other events.
