Via CBS list: Hofbrauhaus having a soft opening at 9PM on January 21.
...and it appears i'm talking to myself.
well, at least the bots are listening.
I'm listening, I'm listening! I'm surprised Hofbrauhaus wasn't already open -- I drive past there every couple of weeks and the place is lit up like a Christmas tree.
Thought it was funny that I was replying to myself
I guess people have reported seeing large fermenters outside the building, not sure if they're brewing on site already for the opening.
In other news, a slew of new breweries out there, so many to keep track of. 18th Street has a kickstarter going and a collaboration brew with Pipeworks, Brotherhood. Flesk Brewing is up and running, Church St., Begyle, Spiteful, Lake Effect, and more. Haven't heard anything about New Chicago lately, still looking for space I think.
Broad Shoulders just had their liquor license approved. Whew
Ex-beermapper Jalaffler is starting up Off Color,
should be all kinds of interesting.
