Chicago Week in Craft Beer, June 21-24

Chicago Week in Craft Beer, June 21-24

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.
