Press Surrounding the Opening of Forbidden Root’s Brewpub

We are so excited for our client, Forbidden Root, Chicago’s first botanic brewing company, which opened the doors of its brewpub to the public at 1746 W. Chicago Ave., in the former Hub Theater in West Town, on February 18.

The anticipated opening of this unique brewpub excited food and beverage media and generated a substantial amount of coverage. Below are some highlights surrounding the pre-opening coverage:

DNAinfo Chicago, Time Out Chicago, Eater and The Local Tourist  talked about the anticipated opening date in January 2016.

Chicago Tribune mentioned the opening of the brewpub in an article about Chicago openings.

Crain’s Chicago Business included Forbidden Root in an article about new additions to the craft beer scene in Chicago.

In an article in Draft Magazine, Forbidden Root brewpub was named one of the best places to drink beer in February.

When opening day arrived, the neighborhood, beer community and media went crazy. Articles were included in Eater, DNAinfo Chicago, Chicago Tribune, Urban Daddy, Chicago Beer Geeks, and RedEye.

WCIU came to the brewpub on opening day to talk about the Rootmaster Laboratory and the food & beer at Forbidden Root.

Forbidden Root brewpub was featured on WGN’s evening news in an in-depth segment from Amy Rutledge.

The excitement continues as Forbidden Root rolls into its second week and Chef Dan Weiland was on WGN’s Lunchbreak segment making Cheddar and Wildflower Pale Ale Beer Cheese.

We are thrilled for the whole Forbidden Root team—we know that this labor of love has been a long time in the making. We are fortunate to work with such an amazing and talented group of people. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Forbidden Root and can’t wait to share its successes along the way!

Cheers, Forbidden Root! Congratulations on this milestone and thank you for taking us along for the ride!
