Vice District Brewing is hoping to open its Homewood location in July after the village granted an extension to its financial incentive agreement June 26. The craft brewer’s owner Curtis Tarver II said in an email to the H-F Chronicle that the remaining construction on the building at 18027-18029 Dixie Highway should take about a week.
Rabid Brewing will soon host outdoor events after the Homewood village board approved an amendment to the business’s liquor license at the June 12 board meeting. Rabid’s license didn’t originally allow for the outdoor sale of alcohol. The change allows the brewery to sell beer to patrons in an outdoor area at the brewery at 17759 Bretz Drive.
When Homewood residents talk about what businesses they would like to see in town, one idea comes up consistently: a book store.
It looks like that wish is about to come true.
Keith Lewis, owner of Bookie's New and Used Books in Chicago's Beverly neighborhood, said he signed a lease last week on a Ridge Road store front in downtown Homewood.
