I hadn't heard of this site until recently, but Beerbin looks extremely promising. I love that it's Chicago-focused, and I don't know of any other site that has the teams feature. I'm planning a series of posts spotlighting Chicago-based beer businesses, and this is one that I hope to cover. Definitely a useful resource -- thanks for the link!

Hey, Jeff, thanks for the love. I was wondering where all that increased traffic was coming from. Surely not just trying to keep the list of places with Bell's 9,000 updated!

Enjoy Your St. Pat's
