The Sloop's beer revolution is still developing (which we will chalk up to the City that works...working slowly?!?!?). Back in May we checked in on the numerous beer centric happenings in the neighborhood.
Anyway, last we heard Vice District Brewing was planning on opening this past Friday (8/22). Well according to some Facebook posts, it sounds like they're just waiting on the city:
According to their posts, they will be opening up this upcoming Friday (8/29).
Printer's Row spot Villains is also in waiting mode to officially open its doors. We stopped in a couple of weeks ago just to see how things were going and can attest that the space is rad. While their old spot was dark and dank (in a good way), the new buildout looks industrial and raw. You will like. But more importantly we know they know beer and we know you will like this as well.
Broad Shoulders Brewery which changed its name to Motor Row Brewery also seems to be making some good progress. Their Facebook page is full of pictures and progress, but what it doesn't say is when they're going to be opening to the public. Stay tuned.
Finally, South Loop Brewing Company is also making progress. Currently they're not brewing in the Sloop, but hope to eventually. Regardless, you have to start somewhere and hope to have them in the South Loop soon!
