We're going to Flossmoor Station Brewery to drink beer!
We'll meet at the M Bar at around 11:30 am, have a few cocktails, then jump on the 12:30 train. Flossmoor Station Brewery is just across the street from the Flossmoor train station. (For those who don't know, the M Bar is in the Metra station at Randolph and Michigan--go down the steps into the underground station and walk straight ahead. You'll find the bar.)
Flossmoor Station offers a ton of brews (listed below). And for those who aren't satisfied with that, we'll make some side excursions to Grape & Grain and/or 3Floyds Brewery.
(Trains back to the city leave Flossmoor at 3:10, 4:10, 4:49, 5:54, 6:53, 7:52, 8:52, 9:52, 10:52, and 11:52.)
