Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, April 29-May 1
We have some more comings and goings to report this weekend:
I didn’t get the information in time to post it on the schedule, but Knack Brewing & Fermentations held their grand opening last weekend in south Kankakee. Owners Matt and Emily Strysik, with their crew, served 755 beers over their first weekend, according to the Daily Journal. Welcome these new brewers at 789 S. McMullen Ave., Kankakee, where they say they’ll specialize in “pale ale, lager, saison, and hop bombs.” The new brewery is only the second to open in the Kankakee area after BrickStone.
Also, Scorched Earth Brewing Co. of Algonquin has been sold. Founders Mike and Jen Dallas announced on the brewery’s Facebook page that they were turning over operations to Greg Doyen, a Lake County entrepreneur. Current indications are that the brewery and taproom will continue as normal, while looking for areas in which to expand the Scorched Earth brand.
