Lagunitas Brewing to open second location in Chicago

Tony Magee, owner of Lagunitas Brewing Company announced that they will be opening a new brewery in Chicago, IL. Lagunitas says that shipping their product across the country from Petaluma, California annually cost as much as it would to build a whole new brewery. Will be starting with a 250 BBL system brewhouse, with potential to expand to 600k barrels annually. Looking to start brewing in the 4th quarter of 2013.

The building will be a $15-$18 million exact replica of the original brew house in Petaluma. It was a former steel plant, that now has a massive soundstage where they have hosted events, concerts, and tv shows and films.
