Beeronaut's Chicago beer weekend, July 8 to 10

Quite a shock to find nothing on my radar for this Friday. Heck, even I won't be around. That's why I'm getting this out earlier.

Saturday, July 9

1:00 - 5:00 p.m. Summer Beer Tasting - Part 2
Dobby's World-Wide Liquors & Wines, 15 S. Brockway, Palatine, IL (847) 359-0400
Here we are again,with more beers to taste. The hot heart of summer is on the horizon. These conditions call for a beer that can carry its character and flavor through - even when deeply chilled. A good selection of beers in the refrigerator is more a necessity than an indulgence at this time of year. Stop by the store for a taste of some nice, cold beers and a little camaraderie in the friendly confines of Dobby's beer department.
