More Brewing Company will open its new microbrewery at 11 a.m. Feb. 29 at 13980 Automall Drive in Huntley.

The opening will be preceded by a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:30 a.m.

During the grand opening, More Brewing will have beers on tap from the Huntley location and its original Villa Park brewpub, as well as a few special guest beers. A full food menu also will be available.

Tours also are planned every 30 minutes from noon to 4 p.m. based on a first-come basis.

Over the past year, More Brewing has been working to convert the former Chevrolet dealership at Automall Drive into the new microbrewery.

About 14,000 square feet of the 25,302-square-foot dealership has been turned into a brewpub restaurant with a full kitchen. Plans are to be open for lunch and dinner six to seven days a week.

The other 11,000 square feet of the building will be used for production, including a brewhouse, fermentation and conditioning vessels, a packaging line and a barrel room, where beer will be aged in whiskey barrels. Plans also call for outdoor patios and a special events area.
