Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, April 22-24

We have sad news of another local brewer preparing to close its doors. Ben Rossi at Only Child Brewing in Gurnee has posted news of their closing on Facebook:

I am reluctant to inform you that Only Child will be ceasing its brewing and taproom operations, and will be closing the Gurnee location. I have no intentions of walking away from the beer industry. Beer has been everything to me for so long. However, I am focusing on new opportunities, new passions, and looking forward to spending more time with my family.

Rossi has set their final day of business as Friday, June 24.

Friday, April 22

Saturday, April 23

Sunday, April 24
