JOURNEYMAN DISTILLERY INVITES AIRBNB GUESTS TO STAY IN HISTORIC FLAT

The Flat, 101 Generations Drive, is available for nightly and weekly rentals through Airbnb and is open to more than 16 guests to share the two-story space. 

It’s got a slice of history, too. The home was originally built and used for Featherbone Factory, to create corsets.

OPENING OF CROOKED EWE BREWERY PUSHED BACK A LITTLE LONGER 

Pointing to electric problems, the grand opening of South Bend’s newest brewery will be pushed back a little longer, according to co-owner and brewer Andy Walton.

The grand opening was supposed to be Friday, June 5, according to previous Flavor 574 reporting, but troubles with a power transformer caused a change of plans. 

UPDATE: Crooked Ewe’s Facebook page announced Saturday afternoon, June 6, that it would open that day at 2 p.m.
