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.
