     The Craft Brewers Conference is coming to Chicago later this week and many brewers are already in town to celebrate.  Most of us won't be able to attend any of the industry talks, but the brewers plan to make it up to us by bringing some of their best and most exciting beer to the city.  I've been all over the internet trying to compile a comprehensive calendar of the exciting events that the conference has brought to town and I'll be presenting my work here.
     Friday is the last night of the CBC and the last night of crazy events.  A few will spill over onto Saturday, but for the most part this is it.  Some of the best beers of the week will be made available and most of you don't have to worry about working the next day.  Enjoy!  Details after the jump.

New Updates including awesome tappings at Bar On Buena and a meet and a Meet and Greet with Fritz Maytag at Hop Leaf

      Since the conference starts on Wednesday everyone should be in town by Tuesday evening and things will start to get crazy.  The distributor Windy City will be sending out extremely rare kegs to fuel rare beer tastings around the city this week.  The first of these occur Tuesday and I've tried to highlight some of the beers that I feel are more interesting at the end of this post.  I've also reposted the list of these kegs that Windy City so generously provided.  Click through to see the calendar!

      There's not too much going on Monday, but it is part of the week so I thought it would be best to include it.  That said, there are several things worth checking out. Please click through to look at Monday's calendar.
