A new bar that has opened up in Vermilion County is far from your typical watering hole. Big Thorn Farm and Brewery, based just outside Georgetown, has opened up a “tree bar” which is surrounded by the woods. 

The bar, which is a one of its kind in central Illinois, was built using wood harvested from the property. 

“We had never been to a place like this, so we wanted to build it so we could hang out there.” says Big Thorn Co-Owner Anna Schweig 

Schweig says the new bar has attracted visitors from all over Illinois and Indiana and has helped grow their beer business.
