News, event recaps, photos and more from the minds behind Plank Road Tap Room, a craft beer bar in Elgin, Illinois. 


The pace around here has been nuts!  We have everyone from painters to carpenters to beer system techs working like crazy to get this place open.

To give you an idea, we have three more government bodies that will be in this week for their inspections.  The fire system, taps and everything else should be wrapped up this week as well.

After that, I just need to handle the little things like finalizing licenses, setting-up shop and actually getting beer in here.

Bottom line: we're almost there.  I'll let you know when we're open and, very likely, I'll give you zero notice.  I was going to post pretty pictures with this post, but at this point, you should be following us on Instagram.  I post lots of pretty pictures there.
