Chicago could drop brewing equipment in with a crane

The unlikely scene unfolding above the Magnificent Mile this week is indeed Chicago’s robust beer scene growing yet again ― a grand entrance for Crushed By Giants, a taco-themed brewpub opening next spring in a high-profile home at 600 N. Michigan Ave.Water Purification Equipment
Because the brewing equipment was too wide to squeeze through the brewpub’s second-floor windows ― as was the original plan ― the towering stainless steel vessels are being raised above the building’s three-story roof, then gently lowered into place, passing through a vacant space formerly occupied by T.J. Maxx.
Construction began Monday morning and is expected to continue through late Tuesday, shutting down two of three lanes on northbound Rush Street between Ohio and Ontario streets.Crushed by Giants will be the third Chicago brewpub for Greg Shuff, following DryHop Brewers and Corridor Brewery & Provisions, both in Lakeview. The latest venture has been the most challenging, he said, due to its downtown location.
Issues have included dealing with corporate powerhouse neighbors ― AMC Theaters and Under Armour ― unaccustomed to working with a craft brewery. The equipment, a 15-barrel brewhouse, six fermentation tanks and six serving tanks, presented an additional and unexpected challenge.
Shuff said he hopes it will be worth the effort due to the dense population of residents, workers and tourists in River North, along with the fact there are relatively few breweries and craft beer bars in the area.
“Being in a neighborhood where brewpubs are not has always been my focus,” Shuff said. “There are lots of people there and the right demographic.”
He hopes to have Crushed by Giants brewing by March and open in April. The space has sat empty since early 2015, when Heaven on Seven was ordered to vacate the building due to unpaid rent.
Shuff usually avoids his brewery projects on the day equipment is installed due to the stress, but couldn’t resist on Monday. He showed up about 10 a.m.
