New brewery opens at Chicago Premium Distribution Aurora.
The Tapville Social Beverage kiosk, owned by Final Stretch Events LLC, has opened in the mall outside the venue of Sachs 5. The facility is similar to the one operated by Tapville at Naplesville and Fox Valley Mall in Aurora.
The difference is that Tapville employees are pouring beer on customers at the mall. In the other Tapvilles people pour their own drink.
Eventually, the Chicago Premium Distribution Mall market could flow by itself. But another difference is that people who buy beer at the mall have to stay in the beer garden; At Fox Valley Mall, for example, people can walk around the mall with a drink.
The beer garden has a mix of high tables and low, six-seater tables. Tapville offers beer, wine and cider, but no strong drinks.
The Tapville concept of suicide is still a small experiment, but it is becoming popular across the country.

“All our people are trained in BASSET,” he said, referring to the training of all bars and security guards on alcohol services. “We’ve been in the liquor business for 13 years.”
Goitia recently appeared before the Aurora City Council Public Health, Safety and Transport Committee to obtain a drink permit. Tapville has a temporary license for the Fox Valley Mall Facility.
Ald. Sheketa Hart-Burns, 7th Ward, Committee Chair, The institution has done well in the Fox Valley Mall.
“Very well,” she said. “You did a great job.”
While the City Council still needs to approve the Tapville license at the mall, the company may be working on a temporary permit for the weekend.
The City Council does not issue a drinking license, but they do create a license for Alderman. The mayor approved the license as alcohol commissioner.
Jennifer Stlings, secretary of the city of Aurora, said that after the temporary license was approved, the full license must be entered into.
In addition to Tapville, he saw the mall open elsewhere for people who do not want alcohol.
