About 10 hours ago, Lagunitas Brewing Owner, Tony Magee announced in a series of ‘tweets’ on Twitter that Lagunitas will opening a 250 barrel brewhouse in Chicago. He expects “1st mash-in will b Q4 2013. Freakin cool, this. Lots and lotsa work ahead.”

Announcing a new 250 bbl brewery140 characters (or less) at a time.

The brewhouse’s location will be “18th & Rockwell, Chicago” and bigger than most of the craft breweries in Chicago combined. At 250 barrels, it will be 5x the size of Goose Island’s operation in Chi town.

He expects “Fresher beer w/ less diesel in it.”
