Smuttynose Comes To Chicago

Smuttynose, another well-regarded brewery has finally made its way into Chicago, though this one arrived with far less fanfare than Stone did in April.  The beer made its way onto Binny's shelves with a nary an announcement and it will see no release party until November 3rd.  Smuttynose may not have the same flashy branding as Stone, but it certainly deserves its share of the spotlight.  For the time being, Chicago will only be seeing the regular offerings from this Portsmouth, New Hampshire brewery, but one would imagine that good sales would attract their other offerings, especially the excellent Big Beers series.
Anyway, I've been lucky enough to encounter a number of the Smuttynose offerings that will be available here in Chicago, so here's a quick rundown.

You can celebrate Smuttynose's arrival in Chicago on November 3rd at Sheffield's Lakeview.  The event starts at 7 PM and will feature vintage Smuttynose Barleywine and vintage Smuttynose Farmhouse Ale (the barrel aged version of this took best in show at the 2009 Festival of Barrel Aged Beer).
