On November 28, 2018, the Lake Zurich Planning & Zoning Commission reviewed the establishment of a microbrewery at 101 East Main Street, called Steel Hearts Brewery.
Mark Cook, owner of the property and applicant for the project, presented his proposal to convert the existing garden center that he has operated for the past 32 years into the microbrewery. The microbrewery would require a Special Use Permit and Code Text Amendment to be established.
The Commission requested Mr. Cook to clarify issues related to parking, noise and separation of the property from the adjoining CN railroad. There were no objectors to the project and one resident who supported the proposal. The project will likely be presented to the Village Board for final approval in the coming weeks.
