Eris Brewery now open, with rare combination of beer and cider

In planning since 2014, Eris finally opens Friday, and the heart of the operation remains what enchanted co-founder Michelle Foik from the start: the 107-year-old, four-story Masonic Temple-turned-Korean Presbyterian church-turned brewery and cider pub at 4240 W. Irving Park Road.

    Sponsored by 5.11 Tactical

    Lieutenant John Garrido drove by it every day. The shingles were coming off the roof. The wood was rotting. That the shack continued to stand at all was something of a miracle. Most of the neighborhood didn’t notice the dilapidated structure at all – when things are seemingly beyond repair, they’re often ignored, forgotten. The shack was out in the open on the corner of a busy street, yet invisible. But for 15 years, every day on his way to work, Garrido noticed. As a 27-year veteran Chicago cop who came from a law enforcement family dedicated to serving the Windy City, Garrido took great pride in his home, particularly his neighborhood of Gladstone Park. He knew something needed to be done.

    Garrido opened the piece of plywood that served as the shack’s front door. Among the dirt and trash was a surprising discovery: a stack of recent Sunday newspapers. A return visit the following Sunday revealed what the space truly was – a newsstand. Standing inside was 60-year-old Anthony Johnson."

    Why are comments being deleted?
    robin in WRP writes "What about Tax paying citizens, brought here as small children, being forcibly removed from the country the call home and sent to a country where they have no ties?"
    She made a mistake there. Those aren't citizens, their legal status is "Illegal Alien".
    Not "off topic". Thanks.
