Community meeting over proposed West Town taproom draws hundreds
UPDATE, May 6, 2014: Founder Robert Finkel said the East Village Assocation voted on May 5 to support lifting a two-block liquor moratorium that would have prevented Forbidden Root from opening its taproom at 1746 W. Chicago Ave. He said the brewery already has received zoning approval and the stated support of Ald. Moreno. Moreno is expected to introduce legislation to lift the liquor moratorium during an upcoming City Council meeting.
