Beeronaut Chicago weekend, July 1-4

Beeronaut Chicago weekend, July 1-4

Nope, it's not a mistake. My diligence has turned up no craft beer events for Sunday or for Independence Day. I suggest you make your own event with a fine American craft beer.

    Writer, trivia maven, fan of many things. I thought to learn all there is to know about beer as a way to stay interested in learning. It is my pleasure to bring Chicago's craft beer scene to you.
