Streets Alive Festival, extended hours & a tour

A year ago,  during the Streets Alive Festival, a handful of hardy customers trudged down the alley to wander into our brand-new space. This year--we're celebrating that anniversary with a host of activity.

STREETS ALIVE runs Sunday, September 13th from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm, on Main Street from Crown Park to Hinman Avenue
Go here for more details

Sketchbook will be open noon till 6 that day.

Sketchbook will have a booth on Main Street near 'our alley' just east of Chicago Ave., and here's what we will be up to: 

  • Free tour at 3pm, call 847-859-9051 to reserve a space.
  • Try out your strength with our pedal-powered grain mill 
  • Spent grain!  Take some home for baking, chickens, or compost.  Bring your own container.
  • Spent grain dog biscuits to give away
  • Cool carbonated water at our booth
  • Samples at the brewery all day

PLUS--this is the day our Barrel-Aged Lapwing goes on sale, our first very limited bottle release.  About 150 22 oz. bottles will be sold starting at noon. The price is $15. Read more here
