All good Serge. Looking forward to those growlers! 

Well I'm still going to ride the DPRT this Monday up to Tighthead. If anyone else is interested in joining then just shoot me a message!

Gee . . . Sorry, Rich! Can't do Monday, after all. I'm checking with the brewer, maybe the 8th (don't have the answer yet). But you're right: even if they are not there, and if the weather is right, DPR Trail is calling ;)

Speaking of this Sunday the 25th, I think I'll go to the iOak (if they will be open, that is), and bring a growler or two to share with Herr Panzerkampfwagen and the rest ;)

Tighthead is closed Mondays so looks like I'll be riding up to Firkin. Anyone is welcome to join!

It is officially confirmed: Imperial Oak will be open this Sunday. I'm planning to get there at noon, and take BNSF Metra back to the city at 2:58 p.m. from Western Springs. Will be enough time to get to the party.

Here's the route (31.2 miles from my place). If anyone wants to join me, let me know, we'll arrange the meeting place.

Scorched Earth in Algonquin should be opening their tap room soon.

Yes, and they promised to let us know when we can ride there ;)

Oak Park Cycle Club Brewery Tour

Sunday, June 29th, 11am.

We will depart at 11am from Old School in Forest Park: http://www.oldschooltag.com/ Gather at 10:45 as we will depart promptly at 11am.

Stop #1: Imperial Oak, Willow Springs. 15 miles from the start. 12pm estimated arrival. http://www.imperialoakbrewing.com/

Stop #2: Buckledown, Lyons. 8 miles from Imperial Oak. 1:30pm estimated arrival. http://buckledownbrewing.com/

50 miles total. http://ridewithgps.com/routes/5072911 I’m open for suggestions for improvements on the route, especially from Buckledown to Lagunitas. (ridewithgps says 54 but I’m trying to fix that)

This will be a no drop ride. A fast and not as fast group may form to accommodate rider speeds. Estimated arrival times are flexible depending on how the day goes and the desires of those in attendance. Join us for the entire ride or for one or more of the segments. 

. . . Perhaps ;)

Any idea when Crystal Lake Brewing is opening?

Not really. Last time I heard, they were installing equipment and stuff. Probably in a couple of months.
