  • The New Chicago Beer Company space last summer

Samuel and Jesse Edwin Evans, the brothers behind the nascent New Chicago Beer Company, are moving out of the Back of the Yards eco-compound known as the Plant, where they’d been planning since early last year to start their brewery.

The Evans brothers and their plans were the subject of a story I wrote last summer; they said at the time that they expected to open in March 2012 and anticipated producing 12,000 barrels of beer in their brewery’s first year. They also said their brew would eventually be available in a 2,500-square-foot tasting room that they were planning.
