Get jealous, teetotalers: the folks at the Stable (1821 Cherokee Street; Web site), federal permits in hand, will soon be slinging homemade booze and beer in Benton Park.

Jesse Jones, chief operating officer of Amalgamated Brewing (which owns the Stable and the Rotten Apple in Grafton, Illinois) says that in about four weeks, house-distilled gin and rum will be on offer, along with corn liquor, grappa, absinthe and eau de vie (a sort of vodka made with Norton grapes).

On the frothier side, Jones says they'll be sticking with traditional German lagers, made with 100% German malt. Brewing began about a week ago, overseen by Finland native Mark Naski. The beers should be on sale six to eight weeks from now, Jones says, and only at The Stable (at least at first).

Ian Froeb reviewed the Stable in September; that same month, the RFT awarded it Best Beer Selection in a Bar for 2008.
