Homaro Cantu is getting into the beer business with an as-yet-fully-named brewery to be headed up by Moto general manager Trevor Rose-Hamblin (who is a partner in the project), according to the Chicago Tribune. Cantu has plans to serve food in the space, but don't expect anything close to what he's done at Moto or at the recently closed iNG.
The menu will be unpretentious in concept, offering Mexican food inspired by the the cooking of his grandmother. Cantu promises modest prices, with nothing above $6.
The organic brewery plans on putting out four beers a year that will be packaged in 16-ounce cans and 22-ounce bottles. The full name of the brewery, which will definitely include "Fork" in its title, is currently being voted on. Look for more details to emerge as the project develops.
