Default Homebrew shops south suburbs of Chicago

I have been extremely busy getting ready for a move back to Illinois and I only have a few weeks to get some brewing in before I start coaching HS football.

Where are the good suppliers around the South Suburbs? I will be living in Bradley-Bourbonnais so I don't want to drive to far but you can't put a distance on the love of beermaking. Or would I be better off ordering from NOthern Brewer or other online supplier.

I'm in LaGrange and go out to Aurora (I know that would be quite the haul for you to make), but Fox Valley Home Brew in downtown Aurora is pretty decent. They also have a brewing club, and if you join it, you get discounts on all your purchases (I think 5%).

BevArt is where I shop - 101st and Western. I live in Oak Lawn and it's only a ten minute drive.

Didn't know Bev Art was so close. Do they carry grains or mainly extracts?

I was hoping to find something closer but a drive is worth it for beer!

And a bit pricey too. Anyone know what the story is on the Brew And Grow that was supposed to open out in Romeoville?

I live out in Joliet and order from Northern Brewer for what it's worth.

Bev Art is a small store, but really great - pretty much anything you need! And very friendly. Lots of grain selections.
