    Don't know specifics but Pipeworks said they were planning on bringing something hoppy.

    Binny's Orland is probably the closest that gets just about all Pipeworks. Berkot's are just starting to get Pipeworks, but only seems to be basic stuff so far.

    Thanks. Is it usually on shelves or hit and miss? Don't wanna make the drive if there's no payoff

    I'd definitely call Binnys first for specifics. Stuff like Raspberry Truffle Abduction and the Unicorn/Ninja themed IPAs will be gone fast when they get it in, but everything else is usually on the shelf. Keep an eye on their twitter too (OPBeer) because they always post when they get stuff in.

    Berkots will just have stuff on the shelf, but they don't (at least here in New Lenox) at this time have a lot of offerings. Also, check Pipework's website. They list the suburban places that carry their stuff.

    Over at Rock Island Public House in Blue Island, they have BV's Tart of Darkness ($7/10oz). Holy smokes, thats a tasty beer. Roast, coffee, chocolate, berry, light fruit, sour, and tartness work so well together.

    Once that is kicked, they will be putting up Bruery's Sour in the Rye

    Had a good time at Tribes. Bean Gene was great, coffee bomb. 2 day old Something Hoppy was very good on tap. It was great to get these beers on the far SW side.

    I know this is probably not going to happen but....I got shut out at all three of my regular stores near me for this year's KBS. If anyone stumbles across or got any bottles they'd like to part with I'll gladly buy them from you!!

    I prefer Mokena and its size - makes for a much more "corner pub"-like experience. Tinley is very nice, just not the same vibe.

    This isn't a plug and I have no affiliation - just thought it would be a fun way to group South Suburb BA's and maybe find out when we're in the same bar together. My daughter turned me on to the app Untappd. Not 100% user friendly, but has some interesting functionality.

    I'm registered as:

    So 'friend request' away.

    And yes, I'm up for a pub meet......

    Side note...rumor that the leasing agent told me that Wild Monk is interested in the restaurant space at the 9750 apartment complex at 143rd and lagrange.... could be awesome.

    Planning on going in for some Sucaba around 6 or 6:30. Hopefully it will still be available.

    My daughter has tix for Session 1, and she said if she can't find anyone to go I'd get the invite. So that's how I rank...

    Session 1 isn't sold out yet as far as I know. But under 50 tix remain last I saw. I think there's 200 per session.

    I passed a license exam for work today, I'm at taphouse Westmont eating lunch (read drinking/celebrating) and they have Sucaba on draft still from last week. Winning.

    Still will be at tribes Tinley tonight regardless around 4.

    Also haut scored some Revolution Straight jacket, 3rd year beer and mean gene at lemon tree downers grove.

    Have had SJ and 3B before both awesome, happy to get some mean gene bottles.

    They also had Doom...I passed at $26.99. I'd say 8-10
    Bottles on the shelf.
