Flossmoor Station Restaurant and Brewery is hosting its second annual Home Brew Competition from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 20.
The competition will feature ales and lagers from nearly 20 home brewers. A panel of local brewmasters will judge the beers to crown the top three brews. In addition, attendees can also vote on a “crowd favorite.”
After more than two years, Vice District Brewing appears to be closing in on an opening for its Homewood location. Village Manager Jim Marino confirmed the business’s liquor license will be on the agenda for the July 24 board of trustees meeting.
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.
Craft beer aficianados have been eagerly awaiting the opening of two breweries in Homewood, but both have experienced unforeseen delays.
