CHICAGO (CBS) — Cheers went up at a far south suburban brewery Thursday morning, when the lights finally came back on, more than three days after severe storms knocked out the power.
WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports things were getting pretty desperate at the Flossmoor Station Restaurant & Brewery, because the long power outage was threatening their beer supply.
Four fermenters full of beer could have been lost, and it would have set the brewery back weeks.
Handwritten signs on the front door pleaded with ComEd to help: “No Power. ComEd Please Save the Beer.”
