On Monday, January 28, the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission approved Master Conceptual Plans at the request of Branko Tupanjac of BRV General Construction for the development of two commercial buildings and associated site improvements. The northern lot is proposed to be developed as a hotel with a banquet hall and restaurant. The southern property is proposed to be developed as the Kings and Convicts Brewery facility with a large production brew-house, taproom, restaurant, and event space.

The hotel will have 124 rooms. The main floor of the hotel will include a lobby/reception area, restaurant/bar area, banquet/meeting rooms, kitchen, and pool area. The hotel plans to employ 10 full-time and 6 part-time employees. 

The Kings and Convicts facility will be 51,000 square feet. The taproom will seat 200 people and include a separate event space that will be able to accommodate private parties for groups of up to 225 people. An outdoor deck on the second floor will overlook the Des Plaines watershed. Guests will be able to view the brewery operations in the taproom and tours will be available for those who wish to learn more about the brewing process and the stories of the beer that Kings & Convicts brew.

“We are excited to welcome Kings and Convicts to Pleasant Prairie,” stated Village Administrator Nathan Thiel, “Adding attractive and unique destinations will promote tourism within the Village and offer a fun and memorable experience for residents.”

This will be Kings & Convicts Brewing Co. second location. Their first location is in Highwood, IL. The brewery is scheduled to open in winter of 2019.
