    I heard from Jared the Brew Master at the Black Friday event in Chicago some rumors about a Brew Pub. Anyone heard the same and any updated info on it?

    There's always migration week like last year for some bcbs . Hopefully though they will have some delights on draft like that or the sour sisters. I'm running low on my 2014 and 2015 bc don't wanna open anymore.

    There was no timeline on construction as of a year ago. Not sure if that's changed, but I can't seem to find any info after the initial announcement.

    I googled it and it had a "permenantly closed" sticker. :slight_frown:

    I talked to the brewmaster back in fall 2015 and he said we would see it in 2016. Emailed end of last year and they said end of 2017. It's one of those things for me that if they build it, then that's cool. If they don't then I didn't miss anything

    "teaming" up with Bier Markt, smh . Sounds great though. Excited about those collabs with locals. Thanks for the post!

    I'm curious to hear how this goes, my wife and I will be in Toronto about a week after this opens.

    Hopefully Lolita and Halia will be on draft or at least in bottles readily available so trips to america will be reduced.

    We will see about those collabs. I have this feeling they will be all good sports commune-minded but a few months down the road, only see beers from their own Big Beer lineup.
