All but one had official pages.


Thanks, I'm obviously lazy.


It's goot for the thread/reference anyways for everyone.

Technically I guess it's a new brewery, but here's a link to a story on Revolution's canning operation. Check out the pick of the Anti-hero can:

We'll be clearing space for these new brewers. Sorry to say, but it's gonna be bye-bye to some slow selling, out-of-state brands come next year.

Broad Shoulders is proclaiming its presence in the South Loop, or is South Loop another brewery in the works?
I am presuming Chain o'Lakes in McHenry has fallen to the wayside. I can't even find their web address.

it's mchenry county, what else would one expect? the only county in the metro area that has nothing but two lane highways in and out of it's county seat (woodstock). aside from the southeast corner of the county, the rest of it might as well be in mississippi.

Chicago Beer Co., as opposed to New Chicago Beer Co., is also proclaiming they'll have their own brewery in 2012.

two different local breweries with virtually the same name? sounds like there will be legal issues.

Maybe, but with so many brewers planning to open this year, we may be arriving at a shake-out period.
