Why? Because it's got a ton of beer info in it. And we wrote it.
 

2/26 – It appears to be all but official; Lagunitas’ Chicago taproom will not open in April.

Between now and the hopeful summer opening of the taproom, Lagunitas owner Tony Magee will have sprinklers installed throughout the cavernous 300,000 square-foot warehouse.

Good things come to those who wait, or so they say.

2/20 – More progress yesterday, perhaps?

2/19 – It seems there was a bit of progress yesterday, but the future of Lagunitas’ taproom in Chicago remains in question.

Lagunitas founder and owner Tony Magee is in Chicago today to have a pow-wow with the city’s Department of Buildings to talk about his proposed brewery and taproom at 18th and Rockwell.
