Several weekends ago, I was invited to a private party held at Granite City. I checked the Posted! app before heading out. The location I was going to in Schaumburg was shown on the app to be posted. I went there fully expecting to see the sign and have to go back to my car to lock up my weapon.

As I approached the main entrance, I saw no sign. I looked everywhere. I looked inside the first set of doors. Nothing! I carried the entire time and was happy. I updated the app. You're good to go, fellas (and ladies)! Someone's displeasure must've been heard by the Granite City management. A victory!

Shame they have mediocre beer!

I rather like their beer, but I've only been in out of state locations.

I noticed that Nicksons in LaGrange took down their sign too.
There is a photo shop in Downers Grove that peeled the sign of recently too.

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

I rather like their beer, but I've only been in out of state locations.

 

The beer (and the food) is exactly the same at all locations.

They brew at a "commissary" brewhouse in St Cloud, MN, for QC and efficiency, truck it in cold tankers and ferment at each location. No local brewers required.

The beer is always clean and never adventurous nor an outstanding example of it's style.

The food had always been pretty good.

It is excellent they don't post the no gun sign!

 

I their beginning, they had three *flavors which were tap-blended to "create" other flavors. "Fermentus Interuptus" is a clever way to McDonaldize craft beer. And GCB does a pretty good job if you want that kind of forced consistency in a product with so many possible joyous variations.

 

Were I as serious about politics and guns as I am about beer...

 

 

*I can't say styles... None of them were appropriate to style.

Rock Bottom sign was so small and at the bottom of the door. I missed it until I left and was looking downward. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

It's great to see the success stories!  While it's true that new businesses are posted each day, existing businesses are "un-posted" each day too.  It's great to see when a business is removed from "Posted!".  Keep on talking to your local business owners and managers; the more of us who do so, the better our chances of them being "un-posted"
