Yeah, thatís where Bryan lives. I agree with Adam, thatís a very aggressive time frame. Iím guessing that he already has some people that are throwing in a good chunk of dough that may cap the kickstarter out. Iím pretty excited to see this project come to life, personally.

i didnít know where beverly was at first, and my initial search brought up a town west of springfield near the ILL / missouri border.

now i see beverly on the south side. only one cup of coffee today so far.

Originally posted by beergurujrWe have a bunch just opened or opening in the íburbs as well, most of them strictly keg-only (some not all will be brew pubs). Mostly nanos. In fact, TWO are planned- a block apart from each other- way out in Oswego. Not sure how thatís going to work out. Also just heard of one opening in Itasca- a brewpub. No details.

I think we all know of a few areas with brewpubs within a few blocks of each other, even across the street. Okay, so Kraftbrau across from Bellís Eccentric is gone, but there were three on adjacent blocks in Flagstaff AZ when I visited in 2001!

I think if one of a group of brewpubs in close proximity gets a good reputation, it brings beer tourism and tickers to the others as well. Grand Rapids has how many brewers again?

But it helps a lot to get that neighborhood. Clamp & Gasket will have the South Side Irish draw, and isnít it going to be near BavArt/Wild Blossom?
