Anyone thinking about hitting this up?
I am now. Any idea what they'll be pouring?
Don't know specifics but Pipeworks said they were planning on bringing something hoppy.
Ah ha there you go!
a little late, but crete (SE burbs) checking in
anyone know of any bottle shops that regularly get pipeworks, I never find anything near me?
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.
awesome thanks for all the info, i haven't gotten to try anything from pipeworks yet
No problem. Take care.
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
Anyone going to Tribes tonight? I'm on my way there now.
On my way in a while. Bean Gene, here I come!
I was but family issues came up
At the bar in a blue flannel jacket. Bald, beard. Come say hello.
I too live in the south burbs....p fo! Ive met quite a few of the southies on here...im down for hosting a tasting whenever
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.
Heading to tribes tonight in tinley with my gf for the first time, I haven't been there before so I'm excited to check it out
Nice big place. You will like it.
I did, it was pretty great.
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!!
So...let's get around to planning that beer share somewhere in the sw burbs, shall we?
Which Tribes ?? Personbally I like Mokena
Lets do it, I have officially moved and ready to meet some BA's in the burbs!
Only been to tinley, I need to make it to mokena and check that location out sometime.
I prefer Mokena and its size - makes for a much more "corner pub"-like experience. Tinley is very nice, just not the same vibe.
I am in on a pub meet
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......
I'm bryang002 on untapped. I'd be down with a pub meet.
I am also down to meet at the Pub.
Let's make this happen.
Alright I am happy I found this thread....specially with CCBW coming up. I work a few miles away from Tribes tinley too...got a license exam for work and will be hitting up the Sucaba tapping tomorrow...anyone going?
Also attending their beer fest...anyone? Session 1?
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.
Is their beer fest sold out? We were looking to go to the 1st session..their website is down right now or I'd check..I'm up for a pub meet..thanks.
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...
My brother and I will be there for session 1. I was there Tuesday and they said there were still tickets available for session 1.
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.
