Lagunitas Brewing Co. on Friday expected to start bottling its first batch of beer brewed in Chicago.
The brewer, based in Petaluma, Calif., has put together a 300,000-square-foot plant in Douglas Park.
The company hopes to open a taproom at 1843 S. Washtenaw Ave. in May.
“It’s just the IPA right now. It’s the beer we know best,” owner Tony Magee told chicagobusiness.com.
