    Two Hounds

    Article from January 26, 2016

    Microbrewery eyes former Schmid store in Glen Ellyn (link)

    "The former Schmid Gifts and More store in downtown Glen Ellyn may soon house a microbrewery and restaurant.

    Jon With, who owns Gammon Coach House in Batavia, wants to open a microbrewery and restaurant in the former 6,200-square-foot store at 486 Pennsylvania Ave. Schmid was a pharmacy and then a gift store before it closed in 2011 after a 44-year history in the village.

    With said he hopes to close on the property in April and open the microbrewery and restaurant by mid-September (2016).

    Labor of love for these owners for sure. Hope to tip a micro brew before Xmas.

    By Thanksgiving even better, it would be nice to have a new place to check out after the tree lighting.

    Peeked in the window, they have a way to go. If past performance is any indication, it will be a struggle to get open by the holiday season. I hope they do open by Thanksgiving, always good to have more dining options.

    Peeked again this weekend, it moving at a glacial pace, I'd be surprised if they're open by Thanksgiving.

    Sushi place working around the clock last two weeks, making good progress. I'm more excited by that than another brew pub...

    How about Nobel House? Last time I looked, they seemed on pace with the Sushi place

    I was thinking two hounds was more like the CU mascot with the t-shirt cannon.

    So, I misnamed this thread, it is Two Hound not Hounds.

    At least their Instagram page is inspiring...

    What I find funny is that at their own instagram page, they have their own website incorrect, it goes to a Go Daddy landing page.

    Here is the current website, as inspiring as the instagram page

    Sorry if I'm late to the party and if this has been answered, but is this a new outpost for the Sushi Ukai restaurant in LaGrange?
