Here's some surprising news, Dog Haus Biergarten has closed its door leaving behind a legacy of good food with a side of drama.

People that liked Dog Haus on Facebook may have received a notification of the restaurant changing its name, leaving out "Rockford." The 815 location's fan page's final post is a picture with the words "come hungry", which makes zero sense. You're going to have to be really hungry if you want to make a trip down I-90 because they're relocating to Chicago.

We are grateful to the community of Rockford and those we have had the opportunity to serve each day. After close evaluation of the area, we’ve made the difficult decision to close our location in Rockford. We thank our loyal guests for their support, and we invite them to visit our location in Chicago at 2464 N. Lincoln Ave.

One person's comment mentioned a remodeling sign hanging for a few weeks. Here comes the real drama, staff may have never received the news before the rest of us. Though there isn't an this indication person works there, here's what one fan shared,

Staff had to find out this way too.

It seems a lot of people will miss their menu, some will miss their beer, and another building will sit empty in Rockford.
