Music returned to Uncommon Ground in July as well, adding live performances to the experience at the restaurant that began as a coffee shop 30 years ago.
In that time, Helen and Mike Cameron have added the organic restaurant and organic brewery.
Greenstar Brewing opened back in 2013 and was given the honor of the first certified organic brewery in Illinois. The beer is made in the back room of the restaurant before making its way to your table.
The 30th Anniversary Beer, named Perseverance, is an organic imperial IPA with a 10 percent ABV. The beer comes with a farm-to-table price-fixed menu to celebrate the milestone.
The $30 three-course menu is available through the rest of the month.
