You may have read yesterday's post on the Chicagoist.

We wanted to follow that up with one of our own:

As a brewery we don't take on any additional accounts, whether that's the northside, southside, Milwaukee or Denmark.
That means if you are a bar two blocks from our brewery and you're jazzed about carrying our beer, we can't accept the business today. We can't because we run out of beer on an all too regular basis at the bars & stores that have already been supporting our brewery. Our added capacity that we create in our brewery allows us to make good on the relationships that exist today.

These aren't distributor issues, these aren't law driven decisions and they certainly aren't preferential treatment towards one side of a city or location.

We appreciate the people and establishments doing interesting things across this city and hope with time we can access them without the concern of flubbing the brave soles that already hooked their cart to our scrappy wagon.

As long as you keep selling it at the brewery, you won't hear any complaints from me. Just keep making great beer.
