With all the talk in the Around Town Thread, I wanted to start a seperate thread for us to keep track of updates/information/news in regards to many of the new breweries popping up/starting/in initial stages in the area.

Pipeworks
Arcade
4 Paws
(formerly double heart, soon to be renamed brewery)
Spiteful
Last Bay
Low Dive
Solemn Oath
Local Option
Broad Shoulders
New Chicago Brewing Co.

And this would probably be a good place to keep track of new breweries off the beaten path that donít get a lot of attention

Lake Bluff
Tight Head

And even though itís in Springfield, Rolling Meadows is one Iíve been excited about and in contact with.

I recently added some beers to Lake Bluff, but still havenít found time to get up that way. Quite a trek from the West burbs.. need to hit some on a lazy Saturday..

Broad Shoulders has started posting pics on their Facebook page of the construction of their brewhouse by DME in Canada. Apparently, it will be the 500th brewhouse built by them.

Also, it is actually New Chicago Beer Co., not Brewing any longer due to some legal thing. Also wanted to note that they profiled my homebrew club on their website blog, where you can see me pouring samples for our homebrewersí corner.

Pipeworks
New Chicago (or chicago beer or is that a separate company?)
Solemn Oath (I grew up in Naperville and I know Tim)

Is Tony opening a brewpub at Local Option? I know he/they did some collabo brews but I didnít know they were actually starting a brewing entity.

What about Frankís place that he and his dad are supposed to be opening in the south loop?

There were some articles linked to each via google search, but I just linked whatever page they had.

All but one had official pages.

Accidentally linked Arcade to an article.. but a link is right in the middle of it to their main site.

AS far as Local Option, it was dicussed in the around town thread a bit.

Perhaps someone who provided it over there can re-hash it in here for the sake of keeping all the new brewing stuff together.
