Meaningful Development for Downtown: Tribes Brewery Project Approved
Posted on Friday October 27, 2017
From all appearances, many months of discussions and negotiations will soon be bearing fruit in Mokena's historic downtown area.

At its October 23 meeting, your Mokena Village Board approved the issuance of a special use permit to Mokena resident Niall Freyne, owner of Tribes Beer Company, allowing him to install a brewery with a tap room and an outdoor beer garden on property located at 11120 Front Street, the former site of Dave's Auto.

The Board additionally approved a redevelopment agreement with Mr. Freyne outlining various financial commitments and incentives associated with development of the brewery, including the use of tax increment financing and granting various fee waivers requested by Mr. Freyne.

Expectations are that the new Tribes brewery and beer garden will be open to the public sometime in the first half of 2018.

Mr. Freyne's project, which represents the first significant development for Front Street in a number of years, is viewed as a potential catalyst for future meaningful redevelopment in the downtown area moving forward.
