Looks like Illinois Craft Beer Week is winding down already. But we have plenty of local events to tell you about, including some new and returning brewers:
Hop District Brewing has its ribbon cutting Friday, adding LaGrange Park to the long list of towns with their own brewery.
Skeleton Key expects to finally re-open this weekend. They had rebuilt after last June’s tornado wrecked their facility and were planning to reopen last week, until some of their people tested positive for COVID exposure. Fingers crossed.
Looking ahead, Phase Three has signed a lease on a former bicycle shop at 492-494 S. Spring Rd. in Elmhurst. The article in Chicago & Midwest CRE does not mention a planned opening for their second location.
And “late this year” is as specific as we have so far for the re-opening of the Lagunitas Brewery Taproom. They shut down in March of 2020 since the tap room was in the middle of the production brewery. Several sources have reported on this, including Block Club Chicago.
