Endgrain Secures a Liquor License

By Sarah Freeman  |  November 21, 2013

Six months after opening its doors in Roscoe Village, Endgrain has successfully secured a liquor license and can finally put its fifteen-seat bar - made out of endgrain wood - to good use. Debuting tomorrow, the beverage program will start with only wine and beer, with cocktails added at a later date. The beer list includes Dark Horse, Potosi, Solemn Oath and other local brewers as well as Virtue cider. “We like the idea of creating something delicious from the ingredients around us; it only made sense to look to brewers who do the same,” chef/owner Enoch Simpson said. The wine list will contain six red and four white wines by the glass as well as a modest bottle selection from Flowers and Orin Swift vineyards. To give its regulars time to adjust to the new drink menu, Engrain will remain BYOB - with a waived corkage fee - until December 6.
