Talking 'Shop' with The Open Bottle

Talking 'Shop' with The Open Bottle

TINLEY PARK, IL

The Open Bottle is one of several Chicagoland destinations looking to satisfy the demand for 'craft.' Owners Julia and Patrick Bisch have created their own unique take on the modern "slashie," in a suburb amidst its own renaissance. A recent trip gave us the chance to talk shop with the couple–to discuss how a Michigan brewery inspired their dream shop, the state of craft beer in the southwest 'burbs, and what it's been like filling a gap.

Following in the footsteps of pioneers inside Chicago, the 'burbs in all directions have experienced a craft beer renaissance in the last few years that rivals anywhere in the country. While sometimes overshadowed by what's brewing inside city limits, greater Chicagoland is booming. One such that's been rumbling on the south side, is Tribes Beer Co. We caught up with them in Mokena to learn more.
