I think we are going to try to hit Pig Minds Brewing Co. which looks like it is a bit outside of Rockford. It really looks amazing. The menu looks like it stacks up with The Chicago Diner and Portland's The Bye and Bye. I hope the taste delivers! Plus, lots of house brewed beer to entice my omni sweetie, who was already cool with going just to make me happy.
Strawberryrock, I was looking at Taste of India, but then I hit on Pig Minds brewing, and it's really exciting me. I will report back!
